The Kistler Group has taken over the German torque sensor and
force-displacement system specialist, Dr. Staiger Mohilo & Co.
GmbH based in Lorch near Stuttgart.
Dr. Staiger Mohilo & Co. GmbH was established in 1945 and is a market
leader in torque sensor technology with more than 80 employees developing
and producing high quality force-displacement measuring systems, torque
and force sensors, and complete test stands for electric motors. These
products allow quality assurance as an integral part of an automated
assembly process. In the past, Staiger Mohilo has marketed its products
mainly in Germany and Kistler's international distribution network, comprising
15 group owned sales companies, will open up new sales opportunities in
over 30 countries.
For Kistler, the takeover means expansion of its range of torque sensors.
Although mainly for industrial applications, Staiger Mohilo sensors are
increasingly being used in electric motors and hybrid engines. In addition,
the acquisition will provide Kistler with additional expertise to further
enhance its own capability in strain gage technology.
Kistler Instruments is one of the worlds leading manufacturers
of piezoelectric and piezoresistive precision sensors covering
acceleration, force, pressure and torque. Established in
Wintherthur (Switzerland) in 1957, Kistler is represented in over
50 countries and has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, UK,
Japan, USA, China, Korea and Singapore.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff
worldwide are engaged in research and development, has
generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric,
piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions
to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems.
These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor,
two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with
microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for
use up to 400 deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
