Quality problems in the production of stamped and bent metal parts require data for analysis and sensors that provide it. Condition monitoring captures many data points that allow analysis and thus faster detection of the root causes of defects.Read more
In Metalworking a significant part of the products are realized by forming and stamping processes, especially for series applications. The monitoring technology for press control has achieved a remarkable progress within the last years.
Optimized cycle rates lead to increased productivity and output. At the same time, there is a rising risk of asset damage, especially if unexpected errors occur. Automated protection of the tools and dies helps to increase OEE. Sensors for process monitoring are key elements.Read more
Being aware of the advantages of Tool Identification the users in production long for this solution to be also available for their existing machines on the shop floor. But how to cope with the variety of machine tool types?Read more
Production processes in milling centers typically use cooling liquids (in order to reduce friction, to cool tool as well as workpiece and to remove metal chips). This way cooling liquids assist to optimize the machining processes.Read more
Continuous control of process media significantly contributes to the reliability of industrial production. Not only in process industry liquid media are used. More and more process technology is involved in industrial manufacturingRead more
With start of industry 3.0 the users of machine tools began to avoid routine work like manually entering tool data. CNC machine tools gained more market share in metalworking applications. These machines are often equipped with automatic tool change systems.Read more
When we talk about automation our main focus is on controllers, sensors and actuators. But also power supplies and connectors are important componts for the efficient setup and success of automation solutions. Power supplies with condition monitoring functions can help you to improve the lifetime of your systemRead more
