Althen is your expert partner for designing your perfect OEM sensor.
Sensors and custom sensor solutions for OEM
We supply standard and custom sensor solutions specifically for the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). Manufacturers and engineers come to us, because they simply can’t find the sensor solution that fit’s their system. Every application is different and often there is a need for a custom design to fit the specific requirements. That is where our engineers will co-design a new sensor which meets the unique specifications. Whether it is a force sensor, a torque sensor, a pressure sensor, a displacement sensor or a rotary sensor.
We are happy to help you select the most suitable sensor or measurement solution. Fill in our contact form or contact us directly: you can find the phone numbers and e-mail addresses of your nearest location on our locations page.

Custom Design Process
We have developed an effective custom design process for sensors that are not in our standard catalog. Because of this design process and our strong experience in designing and manufacturing we are able to quickly come up with a design that fits our customers needs. Flexibility that meets the wishes of our customers today.
First level is to modify an existing ‘standard’ product. This can minor modifications such as different cable, electronics, or mounting holes.
Second level is to really start to design a sensor from a blank piece of paper, in this type; the customer often has already his own ideas about size and performance, which quickly shapes the restrictions for the new designed sensor.
Third type of creating an OEM sensor is by strategically weakening an existing part of the customers system, allowing them to become an active sensor. We often call this an form-fit replacement of a mechanical part.
Althen invests in a longterm successful partnership with it’s OEM customers. As your OEM sensor partner we believe in:
