Meet the HPM team in Hall E2, Booth 2652

Hamilton Precision Metals (HPM), one of the six businesses that make up AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP), will be exhibiting at InterWeighing which is being held in Shanghai from July 10th to 12th.

Organised by the China Weighing Instrument Association every year, this event is the world’s largest trade show dedicated to the weighing industries. The scope of the exhibition covers automatic and non-automatic weighing instruments as well as scales, balances, indicators, load cells, weights, testing instruments and all related electronic components and materials.

For Hamilton Precision Metals, InterWeighing will offer an excellent opportunity to highlight its expertise in rolling metal strip and foil in almost any alloy and specialty metal to the tightest tolerances and thinnest gauges in the industry - down to 1.5 microns (.000060") in thickness. With a long record of supporting customers worldwide, Hamilton Precision Metals will be showcasing its precision resistor alloy foil used to manufacture strain gages for load cells and other strain-sensing devices for the growing Chinese pharmaceutical market.

The precision strip producer specializes in processing Evanohm® and Constantan, high performance alloys characterized by their high electrical resistivity and very low temperature coefficient of resistivity (TCR). Other products being promoted will include stainless and heat resisting steels, platinum-tungsten, additional nickel-base superalloys, titanium and cobalt-base superalloys for a wide variety of applications such as sensor diaphragms, magnetometers, transducers and EMI/RFI shielding.

Michael Zhu, Regional Sales Manager China commented: “InterWeighing is a key event for Hamilton Precision Metals and we’re seeing an increasing demand in China for our precision resistor alloy foil.”
