Plant and mechanical engineering is considered one of the driving forces of the German economy. Many small and medium-sized companies have secured a leading position on the world market through top quality, innovation and specialization.
But only those who continuously invest in the development of innovative solutions in order to offer their customers ever better products can secure their top position in the long term. Intelligent integrated solutions for data acquisition and the digital networking of machines and processes in conjunction with predictive maintenance play a central role here - in line with Industry 4.0.
At core sensing, we consider mechanical engineering to be the main area of application for our products and have a thorough understanding of the problems and challenges facing the industry. That is why we can offer you solutions that are optimally tailored to your individual needs: Modular smart sensors and wireless measurement electronics for high-precision results in the field of Condition monitoring and Predictive Maintenance.
Applications of our intelligent condition monitoring sensors
With the sensors from core sensing integrated into your components, you gain insights into areas of your machines and processes that were previously invisible. For example, sensors can even be installed in centering points that rotate along with the workpiece and record the clamping force of the workpiece. This data can be of great interest for monitoring both the component and the entire plant.
A common application is monitoring torque and power in the powertrain. By simply replacing a component (e.g. a clutch, cardan shaft or drive shaft) with a sensor component from core sensing, sensor data can be acquired without any design changes.
With the help of sensory universal joint shafts, individual stitches can be identified in roll forming lines that are not well matched to the overall forming process. By identifying these process conditions, you can optimize the energy and wear of your roll forming process and save considerable costs.

Further applications of our smart sensors
Predictive Maintenance: Predictive Maintenance
Used for predictive maintenance, smart sensors help you find the optimal time for maintenance and servicing.
Torque transducers in the drive train allow clear statements to be made about running times, load spectra and overloads. This allows you to determine maintenance intervals and the remaining service life of individual components more precisely.
Process control through torque control
Load variables such as torque are very suitable for controlling or regulating processes in many applications due to their central informative value. The recording of torques on rotating components is very complex and was often not even possible until now. With the sensors and the measuring chain from core sensing, this problem has changed decisively.
Use our torque sensors, for example, to control mixing processes via the acting torques. In this way, mixing ratios or the correct viscosity can be ensured via a meaningful measured variable. Due to their robustness, core sensing sensors are perfectly suited even for adverse environments, such as a construction site mixing unit.
Determination of load spectra
For the development and optimal design of new machines and components, it is essential to know the acting stress variables. However, conventional force and torque sensors require a high integration effort and a modification of the installation situation.
It's easier with the integrated force and torque sensor coreIN: With this smart sensor from core sensing, you can turn your standard component into a sensor and easily determine load spectra in real applications.
Advantages of the IoT sensors from core sensing
Our sensors not only measure forces and torques, but also record a variety of other measured variables, such as speed, accelerations and temperature. Not only that: the robust, wireless sensors are protected inside the components and thus provide safe, reliable sensor values. Simply benefit from the following advantages:
Optimized for rotating and moving parts
Our performance begins where conventional manufacturers and transducers reach their limits. Our sensors can be integrated very easily into existing designs - whether as standard components or individual parts.
Optimized for harsh and demanding environment
Due to the sensor integration inside the component, our sensors are excellently protected against external influences.
Optimized for wireless use
Our sensors not only measure forces and torques, but also record a variety of other measured variables, such as speed, accelerations and temperature.
