Optimisation of the traverse path

A manufacturer of CNC milling machines wants to optimise the traverse path of his machines and their speed and precision. The mechanical wear of the axes is also to be considered. The hardware needs to be flexible in order to be used for different tasks in different machines. Read more

ABS test bench

A test bench for the test of ABS devices is created. It simulates a breaking process in order to check the functional ability of the control device. One of the important facts to be found out is which force is achieved at which point of the pedal travel. The acquired data is to be compared with set point values. Read more

Exact positioning of a magnetic resonance tomograph (MRT)

The table of a magnetic resonance tomograph (MRT) for 3D scans is to be positioned precisely in order to be able to correctly assign the pictures to each position. A reference run is not possible as this would cause a considerable delay after switching on the MRT. Read more

Control of rotary folding machines

In rotary folding machines a precise movement of the paper during the work process is necessary to avoid that the paper gets torn. The challenge is the exact positioning of the secondary axes in a way that they can precisely and continuously execute the predefined machining pattern, even at high speed. Read more

Test device for gear wheels for watches

A manufacturer of watches is looking for new measurement electronics that are suitable for a manual testing device as well as for a transportable solution for the measurement of the surface of gear wheels. Several points are to be measured. The existing transducers with µAPP signals shall continue to be used as they are very expensive because of their high precision. Read more

Simple measurement device for gear wheels

A manual test station shall be replaced by a modern and easy-to-use measuring system. The goal is to improve the accuracy of the measurement and to avoid errors which occur when measurement values are entered manually. Read more

Measurement of a spherical roll

Length and maximum diameter of a spherical roll are to be detected. For this, a system consisting of pairs of transducers facing each others is mounted on a ring, through which the object is pulled. For each transducer pair an identical limit value is predefined. A PLC controls the measurement process. Read more

Surface test

A manufacturer of car parts wants to test the surface of his produced brake discs as exactly as possible for roundness, radius and surface quality. In order to allow precise rework and corrections of the process parameters, the measurement device must be able to transfer a consistent data set of the position value and the measured value to the control unit. Read more

Axis positioning for measurement devices

For the measurement of the surfaces of rotationally symmetric parts numerous axes must be positioned. Furthermore the signals must be fastly transferred in order to detect the position as exactly as possible. To safe time, absolute encoders are used because they do not need any reference runs when started. Read more

Optimisation of the press process

In order to optimise the press process and to reduce defective parts the press depth of a press shall be monitored cycle-dependently. As an installation close to the press is necessary, the system has to be resistant to shocks and vibrations. Furthermore, the measurement system shall be easy to handle and allow a fast change of dies. Read more

Measurement device for clutch discs

The functional reliability of the pull-back springs on clutch discs shall be tested. Thereby the force in relation to the distance shall be measured. How can the relation force / distance be exactly established? Read more

Temperature regulation for the production of wafers

During the production process, a wafer has to go through several temperature stages, which must be regulated in order to avoid wasting the expensive material.This involves much data and complex calculations, and therefore a PC-based solution is chosen. Read more

Monitoring of a tools motor current

During the production process of gear wheels, the tool seizes. Thus the motor current increases abruptly. In order to avoid damages on the tool, the work piece and the machine the motor current shall be measured and the force with which the tool touches the work piece shall be established. Read more

Position acquisition in a welding process

Position acquisition in a welding process

For the construction of glass components two parts are welded with hot air. As the material is very fragile the welding process must be carried out very carefully and precisely (1 µm) despite of the speed in order to avoid the breaking of the parts. Read more

Quality control of balls for ball-bearings

Quality control of balls for ball-bearings

On a grinding machine balls for ball-bearings are ground. After the grinding process the balls are to be measured directly on site and evaluated. Read more

Regulation of the acquisition speed

Regulation of the acquisition speed

In a measurement device, inductive displacement transducers are acquired simultaneously and the measurement values are processed with a PLC. Read more

Active vibration damping

During the manufacturing of gear wheels, the machine tool generates vibrations which lead to inaccuracy in the production process. Read more

Gas Tank supervision

Gas tank supervision

The condition of a gas tank needs to be supervised. If a gas leak is detected, an alarm has to be activated and a text mail be sent by SMS or email to the responsible person on standby duty in order to avoid damage caused by the escaping gas. Read more
