Since measurement tasks are more and more challenging in smart manufacturing, calling for increasingly advanced technologies, Kistler has decided to optimize its force sensors. Their latest generation of SlimLine ring force transducers comes with significantly improved linearity. The individual SlimLine sensors of the C series replace the predecessor models offering an enhanced design improving linearity, especially in low measuring ranges.

Thanks to their high rigidity, SlimLine sensors are suitable for monitoring dynamic forces –measurements over several minutes are now possible

The revised sensors are produced in a clean room. The components are welded under nominal load conditions, reducing the recommended preload from 50% to 20% of the nominal range. This facilitates easy installation and often saves space. The compact design is particularly fitted for the measurement of press-in or punching forces as well as large forces in force shunts, for monitoring progression tools and for small dynamometers. 

Optimizations in production lead to improved throughput, increasing availability 

Furthermore, high material quality is guaranteed thanks to complete traceability. The parameters stiffness, natural frequencies and temperature sensitivity coefficients were added to the data sheet to provide measurement engineers with additional information for challenging measurement tasks. Despite these upgrades, the new sensors are reverse compatible with their respective predecessors.
