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. punch breakage or double parts), they stop the machine early in order to prevent or minimize costly damage to the machine and tool. Quality defects on produced parts (e.g. head cracks), that often occur individually and randomly on work pieces 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 single, double or multi blow header.
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 failure analysis which can be used to increase productivity.
Our goal is to support our customers in achieving the highest productivity and manufacturing quality. Brankamp monitoring systems are the key to efficient machine, tool and quality monitoring whenever millions of parts are produced monthly.
