Kistler provides extensive services for both R&D and production, including onsite inspection and certification of dynamometers as well as in-production machining optimization. We support users at every TRL (Technology Readiness Level), from R&D to industrial production. Our training and consultancy services (standard and custom) ensure efficient use of measurement and monitoring technologies. Your benefits: correct process assessment, and guaranteed attainment of production KPIs (cost, quality, delivery and environmental).

Installation & engineering consulting

Service installation

We support you with installing R&D equipment (stationary and rotary dynamometers) and monitoring solutions (force sensors, PE strain sensors, industrial amplifiers, maXYmos process monitoring system, and more) to correct settings and prevent negative impacts on manufacturing execution. Our qualified professionals support you with their in-depth knowledge of Kistler products combined with advanced application expertise.

Reactive maintenance

Reactive maitenance

Kistler is on hand to assist you in case of unplanned outages. Knowing that downtime can cause major costs in both R&D and industrial machining applications, we have now launched an onsite health check and certification service for stationary dynamometers.

Your benefits:

  • Rapid response times
  • Unscheduled maintenance
  • Onsite dynamometer check (NEW)
  • Elimination of vibrations in milling processes

Preventive maintenance

Preventive maitenance

Accurate measurements and calibrations are crucial in high-level R&D to ensure product quality and minimize costs. The Kistler calibration services (including ISO 17025 accreditation) guarantee correct machining operations. Our stiffness analysis service identifies your machines' weak points and provides an empirical basis for optimization and new investments.

Services include:

  • Dynamometer calibrations (R&D)
  • Onsite check of monitoring solutions (in production; also third-party)
  • Machine stiffness evaluation 
    • Dynamic stiffness analysis
    • Static stiffness analysis
