<How to calculate pressure value (MPa)>

We supply nine types of Prescale and six types of Prescale Sheets for use depending on the pressure range.
Each product is made for a certain pressure range (MPa). Customers must confirm the pressure value of their application environment.

1 MPa = 1 N/mm2 ≒ 10.2 kgf/cm2

To obtain the pressure value, you need the mass (kg) or newtons (N), as well as the surface area (mm2 or cm2).
For instance, if 100 kg is applied on a 100 mm2 (1 cm2) surface, the calculation is 100 kgf/cm2.
Divide this value by 10.2. The formula is 100 kgf/cm2 / 10.2 = 9.8 MPa.

the masskgf÷the surface areacm2

Measurable pressure range[MPa] = 9.8 [MPa]1421.37 [PSI]

Judges Evaluation : As the aging of skilled workers and the shortage of skilled workers will become increasingly important issues in the future, this service utilizes a pressure measurement film that applies the film technology that the company has cultivated over many years, and allows for comparison and automatic measurement on a smartphone app. It provides support functions such as judgment and allows anyone to perform specialized inspections using a simple user interface, and can be said to be a good example of using DX to inherit and systemize the skills of individual craftsmen.

FUJIFILM Prescale Mobile

The app that enables any user to quantify pressure and other analysis results with ease.

Prescale Mobile is a dedicated app that enables easy quantification of pressure by capturing the colored Prescale with mobile device. You can also register and inspection images against your own boundary sample.

  • Easily quantitative inspection
  • Improve inspection quality
  • Improve traceability
