Kistler presents a new generation of SlimLine sensor series

09 September 2020

In smart manufacturing, measurement tasks are more challenging and call for increasingly advanced technologies. With the latest generation of SlimLine sensors, Kistler has optimised its series of force sensors, that have proven their worth in countless industrial applications.

The SlimLine ring force transducers feature significantly improved linearity in low measuring ranges. This makes the application of these small force transducers even more flexible. 

The individual SlimLine sensors of the C series replace the predecessor models and offer additional benefits for operators: The design has been enhanced by a number of details, making the sensors in the new series significantly more sensitive. The new design also improves linearity, especially in low measuring ranges. 

Kistler is producing the revised sensor series in a clean room. The components are welded under nominal load conditions, reducing the recommended preload from 50 percent to a mere 20 percent of the nominal range. This facilitates easy installation and often saves space. The compact design is particularly relevant 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. Thanks to their high rigidity, SlimLine sensors are ideally suited for monitoring dynamic forces – measurements over several minutes are now possible.

Optimisations in production also lead to significantly improved throughput, which increases availability. Additionally, 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.
