Kistler equips new servo press module with wireless telemetry for use in clean rooms
Suitability for use in cleanrooms to ISO standard and wireless telemetry of the force signal are just two of the outstanding attributes of the new Kistler Type 2157B NCFT electromechanical, servo press module. These new features make the new module particularly suitable for use in processes with small test and joining forces, such as sensitive press-fit operations and test routines in the medical and precision product sectors.
The compact mechanism, integral piezoelectric force monitoring in the ram and two predefined measuring ranges from 0.05 kN to 1.5 kN make the new modules ideal for use in assembly and joining processes monitored by force-vs-displacement. Advantages include easy selection of the ideal measuring range, a high overload factor and modest user spare parts inventory. Complex drive profiles with a maximum speed of 400 mm/s and displacement repeatability of 0.002 mm can be achieved.
The new NC servo press module provides ultra-high precision measurement of extremely small forces directly on the tool holder under actual process conditions, without the need to mount a sensor on the ram. This eliminates any possibility of the measurement signal being impaired by dynamic characteristics of masses or moving cables.
Many medical consumables are required to be manufactured under cleanroom conditions. The NC joining module Type 2157B meets the stringent, cleanroom production environment requirements defined by ISO 14644-1 Class 8 as standard and Class 7 conditions can be met with minor adaptation.
The new NCFT augments the range of NC servo press systems from Kistler. Five series now provide seamless coverage of measuring ranges from 0.05 to 600 kN. They are available not only as a system subassembly but also as complete manual workstations for development, prototyping or small-batch production.
Established in Winterthur (Switzerland) in 1957, the Kistler Group now has a worldwide presence with 25 group companies and 30 distributors ensuring prompt, local application support and short delivery times. With a staff of more than 1050, the Kistler Group is one of the world's leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation with a turnover of 210 million Swiss Francs (GBP 145M) in the 2010 financial year.
Kistler's core competence is the development, production and use of sensors for measuring pressure, force and acceleration. Kistler's know-how and electronic systems can be used to prepare measuring signals for use in analysing physical processes, controlling and optimising industrial processes, improving product quality in manufacturing and improving performance in sports and rehabilitation.
Kistler offers a comprehensive range of sensors and systems for engine development, automotive engineering, plastics and metal processing, installation technology and biomechanics.
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.
