Piezoelectric force washers with new nominal (rated) forces

Two variants of HBM’s successful CFW piezoelectric force washers have been launched to expand the range by providing nominal (rated) forces of 100 kN and 190 kN.

The latest sensors have internal diameters of 13 mm (100 kN) and 21 mm (190 kN) making them suitable for mounting on bolts and screws with corresponding diameters. The force washers feature very low displacement for high rigidity and have a very high resonance frequency so that they are well matched for highly dynamic measurement tasks.

When selecting the nominal (rated) force, only the necessary overload capacity and the fitting geometry need to be considered as the piezoelectric force washers produce approximately the same output signal for any given force.

HBM’s CFW piezoelectric force washers have proven themselves in numerous applications. The washers are delivered with centering rings and plug protection. They feature excellent linearity resulting from the symmetrical design.

All force washers are tested before delivery and are delivered with a test certificate.
