Tekscan®, leading manufacturer of tactile pressure and force measurement technology, will be exhibiting and presenting at the NASA Tech Briefs Sensors Tech Forum on October 12, 2011. Tekscan will lead a âœSmart Sensorsâ session devoted to answering the following question: âœHow do tactile force sensors improve system efficiency and effectiveness?

The session will explore the theory behind resistive tactile force sensor technology, and will share case studies illustrating the importance of flexible sensor technology across industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, and education. Technical topics addressed will include the unique advantages of thin and flexible force sensor technology over traditional load cell technology. Such advantages include:

  • simpler electronics
  • wider dynamic range
  • ease of integration
  • flexibility
  • lower cost

Case studies will highlight how thin and flexible sensors improve training systems for clinicians, how they improve the function of drug delivery systems, and how they increase yields and save time and money during manufacturing. Register to attend the Sensors Tech Forum in Boston, MA, and learn why one user who implemented FlexiForce® tactile technology into their manufacturing process states, âœThe monitoring device eliminates a lot of line downtime because adjustments just take a few minutes.â
