Custom Sensor Solutions From Stellar Technology

What We Do For Our Customers

Custom Transducers, Custom Load Cells, or Custom Products” can have many meanings;

  • Modifying or customizing an existing standard transducer, load cell, force sensor, LVDT, or temperature transmitter
  • A new product configured from exiting standard parts and subassemblies
  • An application specific or purpose-built product requiring special features
  • A one-time & one-of-a-kind design
  • A first-time design requiring close interaction between Stellar Technology’s design engineers and the customer’s engineers
  • A customer proprietary sensor solution requiring NDA’s between Stellar Technology and our customer

Stellar Technology takes pride in providing customers with this broad range of “special” possibilities, including custom pressure transducers and custom load cells. Our business model is based on a “high-mix/low-volume” strategy and we have structured our resources to support this strategy. Stellar Technology welcomes the opportunity to provide special sensor solutions.

The above definitions comprise what is considered “custom engineered special products”. Each requires varying degrees of engineering design expertise and manufacturing capability. And… each represents What we do for our customers.

How We Help Our Customers Succeed

Stellar Technology’s ability to provide “Custom Engineered Special” pressure transducers, load cells, force sensors, temperature transmitters and LVDTs can be defined with one word: “Capabilities”. This is how we execute our high-mix/low volume strategy. It takes experience, know-how, commitment, and well-structured resources to provide customers with such a high percentage of engineered to order special products. By forging our sales, engineering, manufacturing, quality, and administrative capabilities into a flexible and responsive enterprise, we provide our customers with a unique capability in providing special sensor solutions.
