HBM force transducers at Promess: Quality assurance in production
A partner for measuring static and dynamic forces
Promess is a leading manufacturer of high-quality servo presses for the assembly and automation industry. The company develops and sells high-grade standard components and complete technologies providing solutions for complex and individual mounting and testing tasks. The product range also covers electromechanical assembly systems that are used in the assembly and automation industry as an alternative to hydraulic, pneumatic and pneumo-hydraulic systems. Promess universal assembly modules feature integrated force-displacement monitoring to enable the production quality to be optimally monitored.
The force transducer that perfectly matches any application
In general, the NC control's position feedback or linear measurement systems are used as displacement measurement system in the production of the assembly modules. Fitting forces are measured in the direct force flow and acquired using strain gage sensors or piezoelectric transducers from HBM's PACEline family. Strain gage sensors enable static forces to be measured. Piezoelectric sensors, on the other hand, prove the ideal solution for processes involving small forces. They are extremely rigid, offer outstanding overload protection and compact size.
"HBM's PACEline family has proven the ideal solution for measuring small forces; due to the sensors' favorable sensitivity value of 7.7 pC/N a stable signal is provided for monitoring and evaluation. HBM's portfolio always offers the right sensor for every application, be it a strain-gage or piezoelectric force transducer."
