PCB Piezotronics announces formation of new worldwide Aerospace & Defense division

PCB Piezotronics (PCB®) has announced the formation of the PCB® Aerospace & Defense division, a dedicated, targeted market focused global technical sales & marketing, product and program management group based within PCB® worldwide headquarters.   

PCB® Aerospace and Defense is specializing in products and programs developed exclusively for the global aerospace, civil and military aviation, defense, homeland security, nuclear, and test and measurement markets.  Products include space-rated high temperature and high-g shock accelerometers; space-qualified hardware; sensors and instrumentation for Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS), for UAV's, helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and ground vehicles; system electronics; combustion monitoring pressure sensors; high temperature engine vibration monitoring sensors; launch and separation shock sensors; Active Noise Cancellation products; and aircraft hydraulic pressure sensors, among others. Typical applications include vibration and fatigue testing; qualification testing; aircraft and engine ground, flutter and flight testing; blast pressure and hydraulic system pressure measurements; structural dynamics; engine vibration monitoring; launch and separation shock studies; pressure, wind tunnels and aerodynamic studies; aircraft and ground vehicle prognostics; and noise cancellation applications.  

Overseeing the new division as Senior Director of PCB® Aerospace & Defense is Mr. Ronald J. Livecchi, a 30-year aerospace industry veteran. In his new role, Mr. Livecchi is responsible for worldwide strategic target market development, including program management; technical sales; marketing; applications engineering; and customer service, for sensors and related instrumentation, including vibration, acceleration, acoustics, pressure, load, dynamic force, strain and torque measurement types. The group will also include targeted applications engineering and customer service assistance, with a global direct sales force, geographically situated according to customer needs.              

Noted PCB®  president John A. Lally, "PCB® has experienced unprecedented growth and customer demand for our products within A&D over the past few years, prompting our decision to form a dedicated division to better suit our customers' needs. Under Ron's direction, we look forward to providing innovative new products to benefit this important target market segment, continuing the rapid growth and development we have enjoyed as a market leader in sensors and instrumentation, and helping us further evolve into new applications and technologies."  

With more than 40 years of expertise in the design and manufacture of sensors and instrumentation for the Aerospace industry, PCB Piezotronics is a global leader in the design and manufacture of force, torque, load, strain, pressure, acoustic and vibration sensors, as well as a pioneer of ICP® technology. Core competencies include piezoelectric, piezoresistive, strain gage, MEMS and capacitive sensors and instrumentation. Manufacturing operations are certified to AS9100:2004 and ISO 9001:2000, with calibration procedures accredited by A2LA to ISO 17025. Products can be manufactured to meet specific aerospace environmental standards, with program design requirements to meet RTCA-DO-160 and MIL-STD-810. Low out gas designs are available for specific applications.
