For Optimal Quality Assurance: High-Precision Process Monitoring for Punching from Metal Sheets

Piezoelectric measuring sensors from Kistler enable both direct and indirect monitoring of the entire production process. The force-time curves acquired in this way can be visualized and evaluated with the help of cutting-edge monitoring systems. Measurement signals can be made available via a charge amplifier.
