Targeted End Markets
Our customer base and end markets are extremely broad, as we serve all market segments that require precision measurement of force, pressure, torque, and current. The requirements for precision industrial measurements arise from the fact that precise test and measurement within production processes provide higher technology, new and better products and services, and cost savings for VPG customers.
Global construction equipment manufacturers are operating in a complex, challenging business environment.
Part of that complexity stems from the intense competition between multinational companies. Asia, including China, now accounts for over half of the world’s total commercial vehicle production. Customers see a trade-off as they consider construction equipment: performance and reliability or lower price.
Demand for more technologically sophisticated vehicles has grown with regulations and tightening emissions controls around the world. Many original equipment manufacturers are working to develop new technologies while containing costs.
Accuracy and Reliability
You’ll find our products in a wide range of vehicles and equipment typically seen on construction sites and for building maintenance. This includes telescopic handlers, boom lifters, articulated lifters, scissor lifts, and cranes.
We are working with heavy equipment manufacturers to create highly accurate, reliable systems that dynamically measure stresses in key vehicle components caused by such factors as overloading, vehicle tilt, and high winds. These systems help alert the driver when unsafe operating conditions exist. To integrate with the manufacturers’ on-board systems, CANBUS or LINBUS digital outputs are available and, to further enhance safety, redundant systems provide essential backup.
Our products are designed and manufactured to survive in the harshest of environments, delivering exceptional reliability and longevity every step of the way.
