With a wide dynamic range of 0 to 700 kN, the Kistler Type 9393A is designed
to measure both dynamic and quasi-static forces. The sensor is offered in three
calibrated measurement ranges of 0-100, 0-10 and 0-1 percent. The compact
design of the Kistler Type 9393A features a diameter of 145 mm and a height of
190 mm with flange connections on both ends, providing greater flexibility for
easy mechanical adaptation within various machinery environments. The Type
9393A is also rotationally symmetrical in shape with a center hole, allowing
for the mounting of connecting rods or for installation on a press plunger.
Units are factory preloaded, shipped as a standard calibrated unit and are
ready-to-mount for immediate use, with supplied centering rings for necessary
axial adjustments. In addition, the Kistler Type 9393A is available with
optional calibration by the Swiss Calibration Service (SCS).
As a piezoelectric sensor, the Kistler Type 9393A is capable
of high-repeatability precision measurements over a dynamic range, allowing the
same press force sensor to be used within a variety of applications when paired
with a suitable amplifier, such as the ICAM Type 5073A. When using the
Kistler Type 9393A piezoelectric force sensor at a lower measurement range, an
overload protection factor of up to 100 is provided, eliminating the need for
other protective measures.
Sciaky, provider of electron-beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) services, will start selling these machines commercially in September. The company has used its EBAM 3D printing technology for making very large, high-value, metal prototypes and production parts for aerospace and defense OEMs.
At this year’s Google I/O, the spotlight was pointed on gender inequality in the high-tech industry. Google has established a new initiative that it hopes will even out the playing field, Made w/Code. Part of this initiative will fund free online courses in basic coding.
