Integration of Piezoceramic Modules into Die Castings - Procedure and Functionalities
The complete integration of piezoceramic sensor/actuator-modules into metal components using high pressure die casting is a promising approach for the fabrication of multifunctional structural elements with enhanced properties. A technique providing stabilization and protection of the module during the highly dynamic mould filling is presented. Demonstration parts are produced which are fully capable to detect vibrations. An approach to characterize this sensory functionality of the adaptronic system is presented.
