1 off magnetic strain gauge clamp for flat specimens
When bonding the strain gauges, a fixing pressure should be applied to the gauge until curing is completed. This can be easily done using the TML Gauge Mate, which is a gauge clamp device consisting of a coil spring and a permanent magnet. For use on specimens of different shapes, two types are available. Model GMA-S is for flat specimens, and model GMR-S is for round specimens. Both can be used with room-temperature curing type bonding adhesives.
