"We partner with you, the client. YOUR NEEDS are what we adapt our sensors to conform to. This is an old fashioned tradition that is uncommon in today’s technology world." — Jeffrey G. Stark, R&D Director

Technology

Characterization of surface pressure profile across a heat seal platen

Sensor Products Inc. is a world leader in the design and manufacturer of tactile surface sensors. A myriad of manufacturing, assembly and OEM components within a product require the measurement of surface pressure distribution, alignment and general surface topography. Our tactile sensors create a 3D topographical map that quickly illuminates where the high and low pressure spots are occurring in your application or device. Sensor Products Inc. is a true integrator. Tailoring electronics, sensor element and all software to clients specific needs. Our software is a toolkit that offers the ability to seamlessly integrate with our clients control software.


Our Team

Sensor Products Inc. has a highly dedicated team of talented engineers with 25 years of combined experience in the niche discipline of tactile surface sensing. Your project will be supervised by a product manager who will be your direct contact, and worked upon by our staff which consists of material, mechanical, and PHD level electrical engineers.

"I manage a materials testing laboratory at Colgate-Palmolive. Last year I was challenged to measure the force being placed on packaging used for one of our leading products.  I discovered the Tactilus® product line and discussed my needs with the applications staff at SPI.  Subsequently, our engineers have been collecting data which is proving very useful toward solving our packaging problem." — Todd Van Gordon, Colgate Palmolive
