Brankamp monitoring systems offer adapted monitoring and control solutions for a wide range of machine types and forming processes of cold forming (headers, rollers, broaching machines etc.). By calibrated measurement of the forming load, they protect the machine and tool from overloads, detect process disturbances by machine- or tool-related positioned force sensors, improve the quality of the produced parts and support the operators for quicker machine set-up.
In case of serious production problems (e.g. tool breakage, ejection or transfer errors), they stop the machine early in order to prevent or minimize costly consequential damage to the machine and tool. Typical quality defects on formed parts (e.g. head or flange cracks) that often occur individually or randomly on workpieces trigger a sorting device without interrupting the production. The failure detection is carried out by 100% in-process monitoring on all manufactured parts that are produced on headers or rollers.
All Brankamp monitoring systems offer the operator a well-founded insight into the stability of the forming process through a powerful graphic display. The associated process signals can be evaluated and the current values of the various counter settings (order, tool and maintenance counters etc.) can be checked. All set and learned limits can be stored under an article or product number. These reference curves are available to the operator for fast, reproducible resetting. Runtime analyses (Stop & Go diagram) as well as frequency distributions of shutdown reasons enable a well-founded error analysis, which can be used to increase productivity.
Our goal is to support our customers in achieving the highest productivity and manufacturing quality of screws, nuts, rivets, balls or rollers and other cold-formed products. Brankamp monitoring systems are the key to efficient machine, tool and quality monitoring whenever millions of parts are produced monthly.
