Piezoelectric strain sensors from Kistler safeguard machines against overload and help to achieve precise monitoring of the strain on tools in production sectors such as punching, forming and joining technology. Simple installation and wide measuring ranges make these sensors ideal for retrofitting on existing plants.
With advances in digitization as we move towards Industry 4.0, sensors are gaining more and more ground in industrial manufacturing. They are now conquering sectors where the processes are mainly mechanical: examples include punching and press-fit technology as well as forming and joining processes. Strain sensors broaden the options for process monitoring: they can either be mounted directly on the machine or integrated into tools as measuring pins.
