Wintherthur, February 2023 – Kistler’s Amherst facility in Buffalo, New York, received the EN9100:2018 certificate, which is equivalent to AS9100 D and attests manufacturers extra care in quality and risk management throughout the entire value chain. The standard guarantees that Kistler sensors and equipment meet the high standards that are required for mission-critical measurements in the aerospace industry.
In aerospace applications, even a small technical failure can endanger the success of an entire mission or even threaten lives. Extensive tests are thus a crucial part of any engineering process in this field, as is thorough risk assessment. Measurement technology from Kistler has long been used for tests that ensure the safety of equipment and crew in the aerospace and other industries. The key products are piezoelectric sensors, which are optimally suited to precisely measure dynamic forces, vibrations, and pressure. For critical applications such as tests in space- and aircrafts, the sensors have so far been used in tests carried out on the ground. Mission critical measurements such as health monitoring of key equipment during flights require even more care.
