Especially in sectors where technology is such a strong driving force – such as the automotive industry – the vision of Industry 4.0 is becoming more relevant as time goes on, thanks to increased digitization and the growth of machine and system networking. As a leading provider of process monitoring systems, Kistler offers ideal solutions for networked production.
At this year's Motek from 10 to 13 October in Stuttgart, Kistler will showcase its latest product innovations – with many outstanding examples of networking in automated production.
Electromechanical Joining Systems: Another Addition to Kistler's Portfolio
The new NCFE electromechanical joining module (E stands for Economy) has been specifically developed for plant manufacturers and operators of conventional power packs. Thanks to the NCFE – a pre-tested system with integrated process control – these user groups will benefit by saving time and money on developing their own systems. Kistler is also presenting its NCFR Joining Module – as well as the classical joining process, this system can perform a controlled rotary movement of the ram, either sequentially or even simultaneously.
maXYmos TL 1.2 / BL 2.3: The Latest Generation of Monitoring Systems
Another highlight is in store for visitors to Kistler's stand: the latest generation of maXYmos monitoring systems. Their purpose: to deliver consistent process-integrated quality assurance. Now, maXYmos users can also measure multi-stage processes: this has been made possible by equipping the maXYmos TL 1.2 and BL 2.3 with a sequencer mode, in the same way as the successful maXYmos NC. Thanks to integrated sequence control, test processes can now be mapped with no need for costly external PLC programming.
4503B Torque Sensor: The Rugged Sensor for Maximum Accuracy
Kistler's stand at the Motek will also present the latest state-of-the-art in high-precision torque sensor technology: The Type 4503B torque sensor offers a wide range of additional functions. On this new sensor, for instance, optical speed and angle sensing has now been replaced by magnetic technology. This gives the sensor added resilience for reliable operation in heavily contaminated industrial environments – thereby saving valuable time on maintenance.
Solutions for Safe and Reliable Bolted Joints
Schatz GmbH, now trading as part of the Kistler Group, also has its own stand at the 2016 Motek trade show. Schatz operates internationally to develop and manufacture laboratory systems that analyze bolted connections, as well as calibration equipment, test systems for torque tools and measuring systems for random sample testing – so Kistler's customers now have access to specific application know-how in bolted joint technology.
Visitors to Motek can view Kistler's new products for themselves on stand 6311 in Hall 6 from 10 to 13 October 2016. At 2 pm on 11 and 12 October 2016, there is also an entertaining opportunity to join in a round of "blackjack" – when players will see that quality monitoring by Kistler is definitely not a game of chance!
We're looking forward to your visit!
