Brankamp monitoring systems detect process failures, protect the machine and tool from overloads, improve the quality of the produced parts and support the operator in quicker machine set-up. In case of production problems (e.g. tool breakage or ejection failures), 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, turned parts), that often occur individually and randomly on formed parts trigger a sorting device without interrupting the production. The failure detection is carried out by a 100% in-process monitoring of all produced parts that are produced on multistation header or boltmaker.
Monitoring systems are an effective way to gain insight into the process and its stability, to detect production faults and quality deviations and, if necessary, to intervene in the machine in a controlling manner (sorting). Deformation failures on work pieces can occur during insertion, forming or ejection. By mounting sensors directly into the force flow of the forming stations, process signals are measured and evaluated using suitable monitoring methods. This prevents machine and tool overloads, detects quality defects, increases the efficiency of the machine and saves a lot of time during setup.
Our goal is to support our customers in achieving the highest productivity and manufacturing quality. Brankamp units provide the key to efficient quality and machine monitoring whenever hundreds of millions of parts are produced Monthly.
