Kistler showcases cutting-edge testing technology

Winterthur, 11 April 2017 – Kistler will be present at Control, the world's leading quality assurance trade fair from 9 to 12 May 2017 in Stuttgart. The Group will be showcasing Schatz mobile testing systems for bolted joint analysis and tool testing. Other highlights demonstrated at Kistler's fair stand will include the highly dynamic 4503B torque sensor, the latest generation of maXYmos monitoring systems and a wide-ranging portfolio of sensor technology.

By integrating Schatz GmbH into the Group, Kistler has added new depth to its application know-how in bolted joint technology, giving customers across the globe access to expertise on bolted joint testing. Even the smallest errors in the development or assembly process can cause costs running into millions.

Calibration and certification – all in one

Schatz-combiTEST is a mobile system that features dual capabilities: it combines calibration of manual torque wrenches with testing of automated bolting systems. Convenient, on-the-spot testing of all the tools on an assembly line is now possible thanks to this compact device, powered by a rechargeable battery. By ensuring the process ability of their tools, customers can substantially cut their outlay on tool sampling tests that must be carried out regularly, accurately and in compliance with the standards. Visitors to Kistler's trade fair stand can also try out the latest version of the integrated CEUS software: as well as evaluation and documentation of all testing processes, it can be used for certification purposes.

INSPECTpro for transparent testing processes

INSPECTpro, the portable measurement and evaluation instrument from Schatz, offers a convenient way to test torque and rotation angle on bolted joints. This system provides graphic analyses of assembly processes to ensure that bolted joint assemblies meet optimum quality standards.

Testing always has to be faster and more effective, so we are constantly developing new custom software modules that will ensure easier handling and improve the transparency of test processes. One new feature is the Tool Management license: tools to be tested can be stored ahead of time so that later on, they can be called up directly in Tool Testing mode. Kistler will show visitors to the trade fair how easy it is to implement efficient testing processes with INSPECTpro.

Latest-generation monitoring systems: maXYmos 1.4

Kistler's maXYmos product line: the byword for process monitoring systems that deliver integrated quality control of production steps. For the first time, Kistler has now created continuity between maXYmos TL (Top Level) and maXYmos NC (Numeric Control), the system specially designed to monitor electromechanical joining processes. Thanks to the Split View and Multi View features, the XY curves from both systems can be juxtaposed for comparative evaluation. Another innovation: maXYmos 1.4 records changes to the device setup as required. Through process-integrated quality testing, Kistler's solutions deliver process transparency – the basis for boosting cost-effectiveness across the entire production chain.

4503B torque sensor: rugged design with excellent dynamic characteristics

Time and again, Kistler's advanced sensor solutions attest the Group's technological leadership. Yet another example: the 4503B torque sensor with expanded functionality to accommodate the latest market requirements. Optical speed and angle sensing on this rugged sensor has now been replaced by magnetic technology – so it can be used safely in industrial environments with no additional maintenance outlay. Another plus: the torque sensor's electronics have also been optimized, and the 4503B now has a cut-off frequency of 10 kHz for highly dynamic measurements.

Mighty midgets: piezo-based low-force sensors

Thanks to their rugged design, piezoelectric sensors from Kistler keep precise track of quasi-static and highly dynamic force processes, even when conditions are difficult. They offer many advantages over other technologies: proportionality, low measuring deflections and long service lifetimes.

Another advantage: even very small forces can be measured with the quartz elements. For applications of this sort, Kistler offers a wide-ranging portfolio of small force sensors. Miniaturization means that they can also be used when installation space is severely limited. This trend is especially noticeable in the electronics sector, where manufacturers are calling for technical devices and control elements in ever-smaller formats. This poses major challenges for production, because it is essential to guarantee that all manufactured parts have constant quality in terms of functionality as well as haptics.

Experience testing technology in action!

Would you like to see a live demonstration of the Kistler Group's diverse range of solutions for efficient quality assurance – solutions that can meet the challenges of the future? If so, you're warmly invited to visit us on stand 7313 in hall 7 at the trade fair in Stuttgart, from 9 to 12 May 2017.
