Tool and Production Monitoring Systems

TOOL MONITORING SYSTEMS

The TECHNA-CHECK® Tool Monitoring Systems have been developed to monitor for broken, worn and missing tools through spindle power monitoring or vibration analysis. Various models are available depending on the specific application requirements.

PRODUCTION MONITORING SYSTEMS

The Techna-Check® model PM-1 is a production monitoring system which is easily mounted in your machine’s electrical cabinet. The PM-1 monitors the production from any machine on your shop floor and reports back the machine’s production through Ethernet to our custom software, also viewable via a webpage.

TECHNA-CHECK is ideal for monitoring tools on single spindle heads

KEY BENEFITS

The detection of missing or broken tools helps insure that the proper machining is being performed. Detection of tool wear and damage can help improve surface finish and tolerances.

MAXIMIZED TOOL LIFE

By detecting for tool wear and damage, expensive tooling can be changed before the damage gets too severe. This detection also reduces dependence on hit or miss part counting schemes.

IMPROVED UP TIME

By creating the process improvements listed above, TECHNA-CHECK keeps your machine running longer.

EASY INSTALLATION

No mechanical modification of the machinery is necessary. The entire system mounts easily in your electric cabinet .

EASY SET-UP

Easy to use set-up software eliminates the need for outside service, allowing you to make modifications and adjustments on the floor.

ADJUSTS TO TOOL GRIND

The built-in "learn" function enables the system to compensate for differences in tool grind, improving the monitoring while reducing nuisance faults.


PREVENT & PROTECT


WORN TOOL PROTECTION

Measuring for worn tools helps you maximize your tool life.

CRASH PROTECTION

Preventing crashes & tool breakage can help eliminate costly damage to your spindle.

BROKEN TOOL PROTECTION

Catching tool breaks minimizes scrap while guaranteeing perfect parts.

IDLE POWER MONITORING

Detection of idle power faults can alert you to broken belts or bad bearings.

PROTECTION OF SPINDLE AND FEED MECHANISM

By detecting catastrophic tool failure, TECHNA-CHECK can prevent serious damage to your head and feed mechanisms, not just at the station being monitored, but are down-stream stations where "chain reaction" effects can occur.
