Vishay Precision Group, Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets components based on resistive foil technology, sensors, and sensor-based systems specializing in the markets of stress, force, weight, pressure, and current measurements. Product segments The company has three product segments: Foil Technology Products, Force Sensors, and Weighing and Control Systems. Foil Technology Products: The Foil Technology Products segment includes the company’s foil resistor and strain gage operating segments. A majority of products from this operating segment are sold to third parties as ‘standard catalog items’ and the remainder of this segment’s products are sold as non-standard and/or custom products to third parties and to its Force Sensors segment. Force Sensors: The Force Sensors segment includes a line of load cells and force measurement transducers that are offered as precision sensors for industrial and commercial use. Typical applications for the weighing industry include process control weighing, medical devices, construction off-road vehicles, and agricultural equipment. These sensors use its foil technology products, which serve as sensing elements and components within each unit. Direct sales channels (field application engineers (FAEs)) are utilized as the primary customer interface relating to initial design specifications, development of prototypes, and pricing/delivery of this segment’s products. Distributors are also used for those customers that desire primarily standard, ‘as is’ products. Weighing and Control Systems: The Weighing and Control Systems segment designs and manufactures systems comprising load cells and instrumentation for weighing and force control/measurement for a variety of uses, including on-board weighing and overload monitor systems. Other major components that comprise its systems are: electronic displays; optical gages; signal processors; cabling; system software; and communication software/hardware. The end use for the majority of these products is the precision measurement of weight or force. Direct sales channels (FAEs) are utilized as the primary customer interface relating to initial design specifications, development of prototypes, and pricing/delivery of this segment’s products. Distributors are used for those customers that desire primarily standard, ‘as is’ products. With the acquisition of George Kelk Corporation (KELK) in February 2013, the company would also use agents to sell certain of its products. Products The company’s precision foil resistors and strain gages are based on its proprietary foil technology. It manufactures and sells high precision foil resistors, foil strain gages, and strain gage instruments containing foil resistors. Foil resistors – The company’s foil resistors and current sensors are used in applications requiring a high degree of precision and stability, such as in medical applications, precision equipment for front-end and back-end semiconductor testing and semiconductor fabrication equipment, and avionics/military/aerospace applications. The company sells foil resistors under the Vishay Foil Resistors, Alpha Electronics, and Powertron brands, including under its Bulk Metal trademark. Foil strain gages – Typical uses of strain gages include test and measurement applications where the strength of the object is the main consideration and the object under test is a structural component in a machine or device such as an automobile, an aircraft, or a highway bridge. Strain gages are also used inside precision transducers where the magnitude of an applied force is the focus of the measurement. The company sells strain gages under the Micro-Measurements brand. Transducers and load cells – Foil strain gage transducers consist of one or more strain gages bonded to a metallic support. The company produces both analog and digital transducers. It sells load cells under Celtron, Revere, Sensortronics, and Tedea-Huntleigh brands. Modules – Modules are transducers combined with a mounting and with external features, such as instruments and cables, and are used for weighing and control applications. Instruments – Instruments measure,
