Frencken America is considered by various companies to be the global leader for precision measurement systems used in certain applications. We have worked diligently over the years to stay at the edge of the technology frontier for these products. Over the past decade, Frencken America has garnered a well-earned reputation for excellence in the engineering, manufacture and performance of a range of precision measurement systems. For some of these systems, we are on our sixth generation of design innovations.
The development of our precision measurement systems happens at the intersection of our mechanical, electrical, optical, firmware, software and wireless engineering capabilities. These are complex systems which require a true multi-disciplinary development effort. With our senior-level experts in each engineering specialty, we are uniquely positioned to undertake such intricate projects.
Each precision measurement system typically consists of a gage head (sensor), calibration stand and charging station, all engineered and optimized to work as a seamless system. Virtually all of these systems are custom designed for a specific application and operating environment. Some of the notable advanced features on our custom sensors include:
- Integrated Bluetooth / Zigbee wireless capabilities
- Integrated USB interface
- Custom analysis / user interface software applications
- Gage head parameters are customizable
- Highly efficient firmware
- Exceptional electro-mechanical packaging
- Self-contained platform with memory buffer, microprocessor, 12-bit A/D, interface and charge circuitry with no requirement for auxiliary electronics
With the structure of our engineering, machining and manufacturing teams, our company is optimally organized to design and manufacture precision measurement systems. Whether you are interested in laser measurement sensors or custom force or pressure sensors, our highly-skilled team possesses the capability to produce the specific sensors you desire.
Our engineering group collectively represents an impressive aggregation of design experience and expertise with precision measurement sensors and systems. This experience includes critical areas such as pcb design, electro-mechanical packaging, precision slides, strain gauges, load cells, linear variable differential transducers, precision optics and optical aligners. Throughout the design and prototype phases, our engineers continuously endeavor to design in manufacturability, serviceability and ease-of-use and design out unnecessary costs. It all starts with world-class engineering.
We have precision machining capabilities, including milling, turning and wire. Our exceptional quality and lead time on fabricated motor parts is largely a function of the fact that we can machine all prototype components and critical dimensions in-house. The machining requirements for most of the precision measurement system components are tight, intricate and critical, particularly for the calibration stands.
With the assembly and manufacturing of precision measurement systems, our approach centers on quality, efficiency and flow. Underpinning every sensor (or related) assembly process is a significant amount of experience, deliberation and planning. For us, success is dependent upon our ability to absorb and manage the subtle nuances involved in each assembly and testing process — a level of care and attention to detail that you typically do not see in a manufacturing company.
With our extensive experience in designing, manufacturing and certifying precision measurement systems, we have a significant pool of innovations, technologies and proven processes to leverage as we enter into a new project. In addition to the sensors listed in this section, Frencken America also offers temperature sensors, humidity sensors, non-contact sensors, distance sensors and inclinometers. Just ask.
