Process optimization, quality assurance and prevention of downtime are key issues associated with any technical equipment or machinery. The measurement of forces and strains supports the process and detects wear or overloading of bearings, mounts or supports at an early stage.
The measurement of forces in fusion processes or monitoring of mounting forces are key indicators that verify the quality of a process and detect potential sources of errors at an early stage.
Whether you need to detect a limit force faster, speed up the process or increase reproducibility, all of these parameters are controlled and optimized by the use of force measurement. This in turn can contribute greatly to increased process output.
Prevention of Maintenance
Data acquired from force measurement helps prevent downtime, serves the optimization of maintenance cycles and prevents the overloading of components. Forces are displayed directly and can be optimized. As a consequence, maintenance and processing costs fall.
Force sensor or strain sensor - which sensor is the right one for your application?
The type of sensor to be used in an application primarily depends on the forces that are present and whether it is possible to measure forces directly. In principle, force sensors make sense when small forces are to be measured. Strain sensors on the other hand are particularly well suited for large forces.
