Sensor Products Inc. is marketing its new Topaq Pressure Analysis System, which provides a perspective of the distribution and actual magnitude of pressure between any contacting or impacting surfaces. Used mainly in quality control and research and development applications, Topaq monitors and ensures proper force distribution in any situation where two objects are pressed or formed together. Using the system, one can analyze tire tread footprints, determine the effective placement of strain gauges or determine the drawing pressure in dies and molds, the company said. Some of Topaq´s features include histograms of pressure levels, enlargement and reduction capabilities, and pseudo-color and 3-D viewing modes.
