Force and torque measurement chains aid efficient production monitoring.

HBM has launched the FastPress suite series of force and torque measurement chains comprising sensors, press-fit electronics and software that have been matched for optimum performance. HBM says that the chains will enable design engineers and system planners to include efficient and perfectly matched measurement technology in production systems.

Users do not select individual components and then try to match performance but select a complete functional system at an excellent price/performance ratio.

The measurement chains are available for force, displacement and torque measurements in production systems. The high quality and long-term stability of each component means they are suitable for challenging industrial environments. The measurement chains minimize rejects and reduce costs.

The interfaces between the evaluation electronics and the system controllers range from analog signals, limit value monitoring to detailed monitoring software that displays and documents the production processes. Each product package contains relevant software.

The sensor technology can be supplemented with a series of components that simplify the integration in systems and machines. HBM provides additional support if required to help end users resolve automation tasks during commissioning.
