Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS
The new 9323AAA miniature press force sensor from Kistler: the key to measuring extremely small forces of under 5 N. For manufacturers and suppliers of components for the medtech devices, semiconductors, electrical equipment and automotive industry, this sensor guarantees reliable processing of the very smallest parts.
New high sensitivity, miniature press force sensor captures very small forces
The trend toward miniaturization is unstoppable. Medtech devices, semiconductors, electrical components and automotive parts: in almost every industry, products must now combine increasingly compact dimensions with higher performance. And that poses major challenges for manufacturers and suppliers, who have to achieve maximum accuracy when processing these high-precision lightweight parts.
A new, highly sensitive piezoelectric crystal developed by Kistler guarantees extremely precise measuring results. Used in a new Type 9323 press force sensor which is ideal for measuring very small forces in challenging industrial environments and is an excellent solution for calibrating force sensors installed in production machinery.
With a sensitivity of -32 pC/N, the new sensor can accurately measure forces of less than 5 N. The high-precision measuring range of the unique Kistler Type 9323AAA miniature press force sensor cannot be matched by any other commercially available sensor in the world making it the solution of choice for measuring very small forces.
To achieve this Kistler had to develop and grow a new crystal at its Winterthur headquarters, and they are installed in the tried-and-tested sensor cases of the 9323 product family which gives the new sensor many of the same benefits as the established models, including proven insensitivity to lateral load and bending moment influences.
The new miniature sensor is ideal for use in highly dynamic production processes where high accuracy is absolutely essential.
