Tools in good working condition play a vital role in the machining processes of various sectors. Earlier, almost all manufacturing units employed human labor for monitoring tools. However, this was time-consuming and had a lot of scope for human error. With technological advancements, now most players use tool monitoring systems to check the health of their machines and tools. This reduces time, the scope for errors, and identifies bugs that can be fixed in time. High-quality and precision tool monitoring systems not only help you monitor broken and missing tools but also reduce tool wear. These systems are best at maintaining quality assurance and also preventing severe damage when the tool breaks. This post discusses the benefits of tool monitoring systems in detail. So, stay tuned.

CNC Machining Monitoring

CNC Machine Monitoring: Introduction, Tools, and Applications

Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machines are advanced and automated machines that are used in metal and plastic machining industries for accurate, repeatable and affordable production. The performance of these systems depends on a numeric program set on the CNC operating panel. Once the machining process starts, the operator has minimal control over the function. Therefore, it is difficult to know the progress of the process until the products are ready and out of the CNC system. Generally, CNC machines are used for batch production, repeated operation, and operator-independent production. In such cases, one error can repeat over the whole batch production if not detected and resolved. This can cause major production loss followed by a drop in profits and damage to brand reputation. Therefore, it is important to monitor the CNC production. There are several CNC machine monitoring interfaces available, however, it is important to know them thoroughly before the use. In this post, the CNC machine monitoring system and the process is introduced followed by its industrial significance and applications.

Techna-Guard – How to Avoid Dry Running of Pumps?

Dry running of pumps implies they being operated without any liquid inside, and this is not recommended at all. This is because of an obvious reason that a lot of heat will be generated, there will be friction between some components, and a possible damage to impellers. There are many damages, which could occur because of dry running. So dry running of pumps should be avoided at all costs. This post discusses various factors that lead to dry running of pumps, and ends by letting you know of an effective way to prevent it.
