A new piezoelectric quartz strain transmitter designed to prevent over-clamping of mold halves in injection machines is new from Kistler Instrument Corp., Amherst, N.Y. Its Type 9238A transmitter mounts on the toggle mechanism with a single screw and senses the strain, which equates to clamping force. The output signal from the tiny amplifier built into the sensor easily integrates into the molding machine’s controller, Kistler says. Tel: (716) 691-5100 • www.kistler.com
