Force measurement chain

By default, when joining components the force measurement is determined by measuring the motor current. This cost-efficient procedure allows a measurable accuracy of about 10% of the force range.

The force measurement chain is used for high-precision joining tasks. The force measurement chain extends the measurable accuracy to < 1% of the force range.

The force measurement chain has the following features:

  • force sensor in very compact construction in combination with industrial charge amplifier
  • versions 1kN and 50 kN
  • high stiffness
  • galvanic isolation
  • polarity reversal protection
