Complete packages from HBM simplify production monitoring

HBM now offers a comprehensive range of Industrial Process Control (IPC) products in cost-effective packages for various applications that ensure optimum quality monitoring.

The packages include a range of products from sensors right up to controllers and associated software. Cables, amplifiers for minimum/maximum value monitoring and controllers with production-relevant evaluation algorithms and software for installers and operators are available to provide genuine "Plug & Play" capability.

One package focuses on digital force and displacement. It can be used, for example to monitor press-fit or fitting processes extremely efficiently. It comprises WX displacement transducers and U9/C9 force transducers as the sensors. The sensor signals are acquired in the MP85A (DP) process controller and evaluated directly.

The evaluation algorithms used in the process controller rapidly and reliably determine whether all values lie within the specified tolerances during the press-fit process. This allows a direct statement to be made about the quality of the production steps - "OK" or "NOK" - and so permit tool wear to be detected.

The process controller can be seamlessly integrated in the controller of a corresponding production system via a fieldbus interface such as Profibus, CANbus or Fast-Ethernet. The package additionally includes the FASTpress software suite, which also has a link for modern quality data management.

The use of modular components allows the user to set up an appropriate application rapidly and efficiently. The complete packages, which feature precisely matched components, offer turnkey solutions to quickly and easily achieve high quality production monitoring.
