HBM has expanded its CFW series of piezoelectric force washers with a 20kN version suitable for the monitoring of assembly processes, compression processes or dynamic applications in the test sector.

The CFW 20kN is intended to meet the demand for measuring lower nominal (rated) forces.

This latest force washer has a diameter of 14.5mm and a height of 7mm, making it very compact in relation to its nominal force.

This allows it to be integrated in applications where very little space is available.

Piezoelectric force washers use a measurement principle where the sensitivity does not depend on the nominal force.

This makes this type of force washer ideal for measurements in partial load ranges where greater resolution is required, according to the company.

The sensor has a symmetrical design to give good linearity and provides simple and robust mounting as the inner and outer ring of the sensor can be solidly connected to the surrounding construction.

In common with the other sensors in the CFW series, the CFW 20kN has a very small displacement.

This is claimed to result in very high stiffness and excellent dynamic properties.

This latest piezoelectric force washer is sturdy and is suitable for applications in tough industrial environments where its IP65 degree of protection is a necessity.

The sensors are operated together with the CMA series charge amplifiers or the CMD digital charge amplifiers, which are also suitable for use in tough industrial environments.
