Kistler will be presenting its developments in the fields of components, systems and complete solutions at SPS IPC Drives on 26–28 November 2013 in Nuremberg, focusing on increased flexibility, quality assurance and efficiency.

Visitors to the exhibition will see Kistler’s Kitorq measuring flange, which provides test stand operators with flexibility in torque measurement for electric and combustion engines, gears, pumps and compressors.

Also on display will be the Maxymos series of XY monitors, which can be used in manual processes such as hand presses and in automated fields. The Maxymos series facilitates the visualisation and evaluation of processes and thereby provides consistent, process-integrated quality assurance.

Kistler’s test stands will be showcased too. The scope of application ranges from mechanical components, such as drive measurement setup with torque sensors, to small test stands with torque speed measurement and manual or external control through to computer-controlled complete solutions for analysing and documenting electrical machines.

Key features and benefits

Kitorq system

  • Kitorq consists of a measurement body, a 4551A rotor with a new flange size and a 4542A stator evaluation unit, which is expanded by the Ethercat and Ethernet/IP interface.
  • Both rotors can be combined with the same guideless stator, which is simple to install and facilitates the implementation of various testing specimens without the need to completely rebuild the testing facility.
  • Users benefit from a high degree of flexibility with regard to the choice of appropriate components for the respective test stand, allowing for installation and maintenance times to be reduced.
  • The guideless stator design ensures simple assembly, as the sensor does not have to be pushed through an antenna ring.

Maxymos XY monitors

  • Quality deviations can be identified early and faulty products can be removed from the process, thus increasing efficiency in the production process and savings on cost.
  • The monitors allow for increased transparency in the production process.
  • They also allow for the traceability of process results because they can document all data so that faulty parts can always be precisely identified.
  • Two different types are available: Maxymos BL (Basic Level) and Maxymos TL (Top Level).

Test stands

  • Kistler can achieve automated test stands with up to 12-channel current/voltage measurement through an integrated power analyser with the aim of optimising the efficiency of the test equipment.
  • The field of application varies from electric motors to vacuum and windscreen wiper motors through to automobile generators, drill hammers, angle grinders and more.

Kistler Instruments

Established in Winterthur (Switzerland) in 1957, the Kistler Group now has a worldwide presence with 23 group companies and 30 distributors ensuring prompt, local application support and short delivery times. With a staff of more than 1,000, the Kistler Group is one of the world’s leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation.

Kistler’s core competence is the development, production and use of sensors for measuring pressure, force and acceleration.  Kistler’s know-how and electronic systems can be used to prepare measuring signals for use in analyzing physical processes, controlling and optimizing industrial processes, improving product quality in manufacturing and improving performance in sports and rehabilitation.

Kistler offers a comprehensive range of sensors and systems for engine development, automotive engineering, plastics and metal processing, installation technology and biomechanics.

Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff worldwide are engaged in research and development, has generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric, piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems. These innovations include the world’s first commercial quartz sensor, two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for use up to 400 Deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
