Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machines are the important tool management and positioning machines used in various manufacturing centers. These machines use computer systems to control the machine tools (lathes, mills, and grinders). Continue reading
Tools in good working condition are a primary requirement for any manufacturing facility. Most manufacturing units follow a traditional method of tool change – based on prediction or experience. However, tool breakage or non-functioning tools are completely unpredictable. This is why manufacturing facilities are seriously considering tool monitoring technologies, which help them reduce tool wear and minimize their downtime and repair costs. This post concentrates on one such efficient tool monitoring system – Techna- Check – and its key benefits.

The automobile industry involves sophisticated machining processes to produce precision high volume parts. It is not at all a good idea to employ human labor to manually monitor tools, which may result in scrapped work pieces, machine damage, cutting tool breakage and downtime. Here comes the relevance of advanced tool monitoring systems which help you monitor for broken, worn and missing tools through spindle power monitoring or vibration analysis.
Tool monitoring systems are inevitable especially in unattended tool cutting operations. If a tool is missing or broken, the monitor in the device gives you an indication, and thus, it stops proceeding with the machining operation. Also, advanced monitoring becomes crucial to avoid unexpected machine downtime, machine breakage, tool damage, material scrap and the likely issues. Along with maintaining quality assurance, these kinds of monitoring systems save the entire machine from damage when the tool breaks.
TC6400 tool monitoring system is used in many factories that utilize machines for high volume production. This system monitors the spindle motor to ensure that the tools are not broken or missing. If the tools are compromised, it could lead to disastrous results. However, the TECHNA-CHECK TC6400 will shut down the machine and notify the user if a problem occurs. This process helps the company save money and machine down time. This blog posts deals with the importance of the ‘learn mode’ that can be activated in the TECHNA-CHECK TC6400.
Machine tool monitoring is now easy and cost-effective with the launch of several types of advanced tools and applications in the market. You don’t need to manually check for broken, worn and missing tools, if you invest in any advanced tool monitoring systems. Techna-Tool possesses an impressive track record in providing these monitoring systems to execute highly precision required tool monitoring tasks.
About Techna-Check TTMON and Its Applications
The Techna-Check TTMON, which is a Microsoft Windows application, has gained a substantial competitive advantage due to its superior features, which are unparalleled to none. The application is used not only to enhance a part’s quality and tool life but also to protect your spindle and feed mechanism.
Several industrial and commercial sectors make use of Techna-Check TTMON for applications such as:
Techna-Tool possesses an impressive track record in providing dependable tool and process monitoring systems to multifarious industrial sectors. Techna-Tool’s various tool monitoring system models help you with your automated production processes by identifying broken, worn and missing tools.
The Model TC-USB
The model TC-USB can be connected to the USB port of either a stand-alone PC or industrial PC in order to run tool monitoring applications. TC-USB, which is a communication controller, has the capacity to monitor 1-128 tools or cutting processes per motor.
There has been an increasing use of tool and process monitoring systems in the manufacturing sector for the last few years. Several types of tool breakage detection systems are invented to monitor broken, worn and missing tools. This monitoring system uses advanced signal processing technologies to provide accurate results.
Efficient Tool Breakage Detection Systems from Techna-Tool
Techna-Tool is the most reliable name in the industry for providing several tool and process monitoring systems to multifarious industries.
Techna-Tool offers various models of tool monitoring/breakage detection systems that ensure automatic monitoring of the condition of a tool. Models available at Techna-Tool include:
Tool monitoring is an essential process when it comes to machining systems. There are a number of reasons for this: they help to manage resources; help in terms of overall system evaluation and maintenance; they can also be usedto make decisions that can improve overall system performance and shut down the line to prevent bad parts or scrap from being manufactured.
However,with numerous industries having specialized monitoring needs, you need a manufacturer that can provide solutions to unique requirements. Techna-Tool Inc. can provide the required solution with one-of-a-kind and effective contact and non-contact monitoring systems.
