SeTAC Machine Tool
Continuous monitoring of machine tools provides crucial information for the functional condition of machines and their components, work-process quality, and for the operator’s proper use of the machine.
SeTAC is a compact and complete device that is integrated into the machine. It measures, analyzes, and stores data concerning the main vibration-related parameters of machine tools, such as the following:
• Component wear
• Non-Optimized work processes
BASIC KIT - THE “BLACK BOX” FOR MACHINE TOOLS
The SeTAC Basic kit is the ideal, simple solution to monitor and record all significant vibrations and collision events on machine tool during its entire life.
Able to store up to 12. 000 events within the internal memory, perfectly categorized in terms of type, value and event time, the SeTAC Basic is perfect for:
• Checking the correct utilization of the machine: Assuring that no excessive vibration level or collisions are present during the working process.
• Optimizing the spindle maintenance: By monitoring the total spindle exposure to vibrations, SeTAC calculates the actual spindle residual life, granting therefore that spindle overhaul is performed at the right time.
Where P are Dynamic Loads: SeTAC, by direct measuring actual dynamic loads on spindle, ensures optimization of maintenance plan.
Configuration example on machine tool:
With the basic interface, SeTAC works as a “Black Box” independent from the machine tool electronics.
The configuration and the retrieving of the registered data in the sensor memory is done via PC through USB connection with dedicated software.
A standard M12-8 poles extension cable is used to connect the sensor to the interface.
ADVANCED KIT - THE “AIRBAG” FOR MACHINE TOOLS
The advanced interface adds to the “Black Box” features of the basic interface the relays output that can be directly connected to the machine PLC to protect machine against:
• Collisions: They are the major cause of spindle failures, even if not catastrophic.
• Process Overloads: They could damage the machine as well as reduce the quality of the machined parts.
