Kistler Instruments at PDM 2013

On Stand No. C015, Kistler Instruments will be showing the latest versions of its range of injection moulding instrumentation for "Zero Reject" quality control.

The latest version of the widely used Kistler CoMo Injection cavity pressure monitoring system now provides mould recognition and automatic loading of mould data making mould connection and setting easier and faster during mould changes. New connectors, with mould ID Chips, simplify loading of mould and product data sets and indicate connection errors on the CoMo Injection touch screen display or PC. Connection errors are detected quickly and can be corrected before they can cause any problems.

To support CoMo Injection, the Kistler Stasa QC software for injection moulding requires significantly fewer physical trials to increase process stability and part quality whilst optimizing cycle and set-up times. With the help of a statistical Design of Experiments (DoE), it systematically determines the effect of relevant machine parameters on part quality and optimizes the operating point, taking into account all optimization targets. A stabilized process, high part quality and short cycle times translate into higher output rates and significant savings.

Kistler Group
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.
