MiJET: An Innovative Cleaning Tool for Industries

We all know the importance of keeping production floors and machines clean and free of oil and related residue. These 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 are 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.

Techna-Check PM-1 – A Revolutionary Production Monitoring System from Techna Tool

A production monitoring system is a device that monitors the production of a machine and sends the report back to the custom software through Ethernet. Techna-Tool is one of the leaders in providing reliable production monitoring systems in the US. The company has developed its own production monitoring system called as “Techna-Check PM-1”. Are you interested to know more about this system, and its features? Well, the following post is dedicated to help you understand this system better. Read on to know more.

What is a Production Monitoring System?

Before we move forward to understanding the beneficial features, and advantages of Techna-Check PM-1, let us know what the system is exactly. The main objective of a production monitoring system is to collect the overall performance data of the production line. This data is collected in real time, while the production is going on. Production performance data collected from the various sections of the production line is then submitted to the managers or employees, who are working on the line. By collecting this performance data with the help of the production monitoring system, it helps enhance the competency of the overall line. Continue reading


BK Mikro LIN Linear Scanner- A Revolutionary Tool from Techna Tool

Techna Tool’s BK Mikro LIN linear scanner is one of the most important tools used in the applications, which involve monitoring geometries. As the name suggests, this tool is used for linear or longitudinal scanning purpose. If you want to scan bore holes, cavities, or critical coolant pressure, and if rotary scanning is not possible or inappropriate due to limited space arrangements, then in such case, this linear scanner is of great help. The many benefits of this tool has made it popular in several applications.

Let us have a look at some beneficial features of the BK Mikro LIN linear scanner tool.

The Striking Features of BK Mikro Linear Scanner That Make it Popular

Here are some most striking beneficial features of the linear scanner tool from Techna Tool:

1. The linear scanner tool allows you to effectively monitor the scanning position. The precise scanning position is entered by “Teach-in” feature.
2. With BK Mikro linear scanner, it is possible for you to carry out the tool check prior to every working cycle (tool monitoring). Depending on the controller you use it can save up to 512 scanning positions.
3. The tip of the probe is available in many variants. So, depending on the project, you can choose the tip or make your own customer tip.
4. You can program your checking tolerance as tight a 0.05mm in the controller software for the “O.K.” message.
5. The scanning result is indicated by the two LEDs for “O.K” and “K.O” at the control unit. Continue reading
