Kistler will presents another member of the Joining Systems family. As well as the classical linear joining process, the new NCFR Joining Module can perform a rotary movement of the ram, either sequentially or even simultaneously. With its integrated hollow-shaft servo motors, the module features compact dimensions and extremely low weight. This design offers excellent dynamic characteristics, creating the basis for dramatically reduced cycle times. Integrated sensors continuously capture and evaluate force and displacement - as well as rotation angle and torque - with maximum precision, so 100% quality and control are ensured. The piezoelectric force sensor has two predefined measuring ranges to deliver high resolution; it also offers high overload capacity, especially in the small measuring range.
