CNC Machining is a widely utilized process in today’s industries for making highly detailed cut outs of a wide range of materials including metals, plastics, wood, glass, foam, and composites. In CNC machining, pre-programmed computer software controls the machine tools such as lathes, mills, and grinders, among others. As it is an automated process, it is imperative to have a reliable tool monitoring system that monitors broken, worn and missing tools. The tool monitoring system detects disturbances in the machining process at the early stage, allowing the technician to take necessary preventive measures. Techna-Tool offers various models of tool monitoring systems including Techna-Check that monitors the functioning of HMC, VMC, lathes, drills and taps, reamers, gun drills, milling cutters, among others. Techna-Check is designed for accurate monitoring of CNC tools. One of the important components of tool monitoring system that enables the accurate monitoring is sensors. This post discusses the various types of sensors used in the revolutionary Techna-Check tool monitoring system.

Automation in the manufacturing sector has picked up pace over the last few years, and the advancements in technology and electronics have a huge role in this. Most players in the manufacturing sector opt for partial or complete automation of their processes depending on their budget and requirements. This has helped increase the overall efficiency, production volumes and speed of functioning. Production monitoring systems help determine the working capacity and the state of a machine. Hence, nowadays these are installed on production floors. This post discusses the usefulness of production monitoring systems along with their features and working.
Outputs Production Monitoring Systems Offer
Production monitoring systems help identify flaws or glitches in a machine, in real time and in turn help improve the overall productivity. Most systems can be easily mounted on the machine’s electrical cabinet. These monitoring tools are linked with Ethernet and production monitoring software that helps in reporting the status of the machine and data collection. You also get outputs such as scrap quantities and downtime if any, based on which rectification steps can be taken. So production monitoring systems offer an end-to-end solution right from machine and product quality to increasing output, optimizing machine utilization, and take improvement steps based on the data analysis.

We all know the importance of keeping production floors and machines clean and free of oil and related residue. This debris not only hampers the speed and productivity but also increases the risk of slips and falls on the floor. A regular air spray done through a nozzle allows dirt to settle on the floor and in fact, some of it is inhaled by the workers around. There is equipment that helps shop owners keep the surroundings clean. Among them, MiJET is an innovative unit that cleans the oil and residue from parts. It is a localized cleaning unit that offers many other benefits when it is installed near CNC machines. It comes in various sizes and operates on the basic principle of air. Do you want to know how these machines work? Or why they becoming popular? This post discusses them in detail.
