The range of five force sensors from Kistler Instruments has been developed specifically for use in production environments, especially for quality assurance monitoring in press-fit assembly applications. The combination of compact size, simple installation, wide measuring range, overload tolerance and value for money make the new sensors ideal for use in manufacturing applications.
The sensors cover measuring ranges from 5kN to 120kN and are supplied as standard with 1%, 10% and 100% measuring range calibrations. In most applications, the sensors may be fitted directly into presses, punches and rams but, where this is not possible, a variety of flanges and adapters are available. Where high precision coaxial installation is required, such as in presses, a double sided centering seat is available. Three of the sensors have a longitudinal, central bore for use with ejector tools and the standard accessories kit includes mounting adapters, threaded bushes and a steel screw-on cap, to protect the radial cable outlet.
Kistler force sensors provide precision process monitoring that is easy to install, robust and virtually maintenance free throughout a long working life.
