Vishay Precision Group, Inc. operates as a designer, manufacturer, and marketer of sensors and sensor-based measurement systems, as well as specialty resistors and strain gages. The company provides precision products and solutions, majority of which are ‘designed-in’ by its customers, specializing in the improving markets of stress, force, weight, pressure, and current measurements. Segments Foil Technology Products This segment includes the company’s foil resistor and strain gage operating segments. Typical applications for foil resistors include high end test equipment for the aviation, military and space, semiconductor, process control, oil and gas, and medical markets. Typical applications for strain gages are stress analysis for structural testing in the aviation, military and space, infrastructure and construction markets. A majority of products from the strain gage operating segment are sold to third parties as ‘standard catalog items’, the remainder of this operating segment’s products are sold as non-standard and/or custom products to third parties and to the company’s Force Sensors segment. Force Sensors This 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 force sensors are in medical devices (such as hospital beds and medication dosing), agricultural equipment (for precision force measurement), and construction machinery (for tipping and overload protection). These sensors use the company’s foil technology products, which serve as sensing elements and components within each unit. A majority of products from the Force Sensors segment are sold to third parties as ‘standard catalog items’ but an improving sector of this segment’s products are sold as non-standard and/or custom products to third parties and to its Weighing and Control Systems segment. 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 This segment designs and manufactures complete systems that include load cells and instrumentation for weighing and force control/measurement for various uses, including on-board weighing and overload monitor systems. Typical applications for the company’s weighing and control systems products are process weighing of chemicals, food and pharmaceuticals; aircraft and truck weighing and overload protections; weight force and process optimization in steel and paper mills; and force measurement for offshore oil and gas exploration. This segment acquires majority of the load cells it requires from the company’s Force Sensors segment. As such, the company considers the load cell production line to be an integral component of the Weighing and Control Systems segment’s production process. Other major components that comprise the company’s systems are electronic displays; optical gages; signal processors; MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) sensors; cabling; system software; and communication software/hardware. The end use for the majority of these products is the precision measurement of force, weight, pressure, torque, tilt, motion, and acceleration. 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 and sales agents are also used, as appropriate, to market, sell and support certain products in this segment. Products The company’s precision sensor and sensor-based systems include products, such as load cells, transducers, weighing modules, and complete systems for process control and on-board weighing applications. The company manufactures and sells high precision foil resistors, foil strain gages and strain gage instruments containing foil resistors. Its product portfolio comprises: Foil Resistors: The company’s foil
