Kistler Instrument Corporation has announced the North American debut of the NCFT Type 2157A series, a precision electromechanical servo press family, offering force displacement monitoring within assembly, joining and other single-channel control applications.
According to the company, the Kistler NCFT Type 2157A series incorporates an integral piezoelectric dual range tension/compression force sensor and charge amplifier, allowing modules to offer high-velocity travel, precision joining and process monitoring in ranges of 0.25 kN to 1 kN with practical repeatability of <0.005 mm.
Modules offer active compensation of process compression while providing for up to 15x overload capability. They can be installed vertically or horizontally via wall or flange mount. An absolute encoder is integrated into the electrically commutated AC servo drive motor for precise positioning, eliminating the need for reference point determination. The servo controller provides a constant speed independent of load, according to the company. Standard functions like block, position and force feedback controlled pressing and intermediate positioning are fully supported.
