May 29, 2018 –Kistler introduced MicroDyn, a series-produced cutting force meter. This is designed to provide manufacturing companies and research institutions with a solution for precise measurements of cutting forces in the development of micro tools.
With the MicroDyn 9109AA dynamometer, Kistler is working to create new opportunities for its customers in the fields of ultra-fine machining, micro-precision machining and ultra-precision machining – especially in the development of tools for the machining of brittle-hard materials and the optimization of machining processes.
Measuring 30x30 mm, the MicroDyn has a natural frequency of 15 kHZ in all three axes, and dynamic forces up to 500 N can be measured and the resulting torques of up to 50 Nm calculated. This makes it possible to detect forces with tool speeds of up to 120,000 RPM on individual blades of the tool. The piezoelectric measuring crystal rings ensure sensitivity. They are also installed in such a way that temperature influences are largely compensated.
The MicroDyn 9109AA is equipped with a variety of mounting options. It can be both mounted vertically and horizontally to the machine tool machine tool table and the workpiece can be clamped accordingly. The combination of MicroDyn with multi-channel charge amplifiers, in particular the solution 5080A; is recommended. Kistler offers corresponding packages including the Dynoware software for a configuration in which the rules for the force and torque calculation are already stored. In principle, however, the MicroDyn can also be used with other analysis systems. MicroDyn is available now.
