Multipurpose, ICP® Industrial Force Monitoring Sensors




August 4, 2005, Depew, NY, USA - Multipurpose, ICP® piezoelectric sensors from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc., utilize piezoelectric quartz sensing elements and ICP® technology to measure dynamic and quasi-static forces on machinery structures. ICP® piezoelectric sensors feature high rigidity and have no moving parts inside them, thus are not susceptible to fatigue or changes in sensitivity over millions of cycles. They are therefore ideal for industrial process control and product quality assurance applications which require measurement of repetitive cycles. In typical applications, upper and lower control limits are set to follow a desired force curve for the process, and if the actual force curve deviates from the pre-set control limits, the process is shut down. This prevents the acceptance of non-conforming parts as finished goods.


Applications include clinching, crimping, metal forming, plastic injection molding, pressing, punching, spot welding, stamping, and automated assembly operations. PCB® General Purpose ICP® Force Sensors, Force Rings, Force Links, and Strain Sensors are easy to install, and can be powered by any ICP® sensor signal conditioner.
