New Compact Piezoelectric Force Washer with 20 kN Nominal (Rated) Force Expands the PACEline Program from HBM
Marlboro, MA - The metrology technology specialist HBM is expanding its range of piezoelectric force washers into the lower nominal (rated) forces with the 20 kN version of the CFW series.
The new force washer has a diameter of just 14.5 mm and a height of 7 mm, making it very compact in relation to its nominal force, allowing it to be easily integrated in applications, even in those where very little space is available.
The piezoelectric principle of measurement with which the force washer works has a sensitivity that does not depend on the nominal force and it is therefore recommended for measurements in the partial load ranges where greater resolution is required. The symmetrical design of the sensor represents good linearity characteristics and is simple to mount since the inner and outer ring of the sensor can be solidly connected to the surrounding construction. Like the other sensors in the CFW series, the CFW/20KN also has a very small displacement; this results in very high rigidity and accordingly the best dynamic properties.
In typical applications, such as monitoring of assembly processes, compression processes or dynamic applications in the test sector, this force washer impresses with the ability to integrate easily thanks to its compact dimensions.
The new piezoelectric force washer is very sturdy and suitable for applications in rough industrial environments which require a high degree of protection-IP65. The sensors are operated together with the CMA series charge amplifiers or the CMD digital charge amplifiers which are also suitable for use in rough industrial environments.
