Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS

Acceleration, force, pressure and assembly in miniature.

Kistler Instruments will be showing its recently launched NCNT actuator system designed specifically for assembling small components using interference fit joining methods. The actuator is ideal for assembling small and miniature components such as inserting small bearings and gear wheels into miniature gearboxes.

Based on the well proven design of Kistler's large joining modules, the new module uses integrated force-displacement monitoring to achieve 100% quality assurance throughout the joining phase.

Building on its long experience of manufacturing miniature piezoelectric sensors, Kistler will also be showing a wide range of miniature accelerometers, force and pressure sensors and the MiniDyn 3-component dynamometer for monitoring cutting forces in ultra precision machining applications. Widely used in the injection moulding industry, Kistler mould pressure sensors are now available for use in micro-miniature moulding applications. The Type 9210A, for indirect mould pressure monitoring up to 3,000 bar, is only slightly larger than a single granule. Kistler miniature sensors use the patented PiezoStar grown crystal to provide the sensitivity and reliability demanded by miniature and micro-miniature assembly and machining applications.
