The NCFT Type 2157A Series from Kistler Instruments Corp., Amherst, NY, is a precision electromechanical servo press family, providing high-reliability force displacement monitoring within assembly, joining, and other single-channel control applications. The modules incorporate an integral piezoelectric dual-range tension/compression force sensor and charge amplifier in a robust housing, allowing modules to offer high-velocity travel, precision joining, and process monitoring in ranges of 0.25 kN to 1 kN with practical repeatability of <0.005 mm. Features include active compensation of process compression for exact positioning, up to 15X overload capability, installation vertically or horizontally, and an integrated encoder in the AC servo drive motor.
