Products & Services
The deployment of state-of-the-art technology allows logging and visualization of all crucial data in real-time continuously during your whole production run.
Temperature sensors at the cutting edge (in-process-measurement) Temperature sensors at shaft Temperature sensor at bottom Plug speed Punch force Forming pressure Downholder pressure Vacuum Water pressure
Network compatible (LAN) Alarm outputs Digital inputs Tool history Registration of total punch cycles User interface
After a product change the system allows a faster readjustment of the new production parameters since you can resort to already determined parameters. This helps to:
increase your manufacturing efficiency decrease rejects all crucial process parameters on location stability of production through reference data improve product database
all relevant process parameters are visualized on location at one glance. If parameters exceed a user definable value, automatic warnings are generated. This enables the operator to eliminate faults efficiently.
The logged data can be saved together with product data. This makes production transparent for Quality assurance. Through the software it is possible to eval-uate the logged data later at any time. The data can be read selectively and there are tools to visualize it in mutual dependency. It is possible to provide evidence of the process at a specific period with hindsight. This helps with:
process control process visualization process security
Besides the integrated data logging facility it is also possible to keep track of the tool condition as well as maintenance data over the whole lifetime of the tool. Think of it as an electronic passport of your tool that allows you to overview the total production relevant history of a specific thermoform tool. This is a great help to keep your cost of maintenance down and weak points can be detected and eliminated efficiently and demonstrably. A management modul helps you to keep track of your tools.
Tool specific data (model, serial nr, etc) Tool system parameters (min- and max values) Grinding information Maintenance operations (exchange of wearing parts) Operating life (punch cycles) Wear and tear parts Modifications in construction Tool management

We also offer the following services:
scientific and technological services and research and design relating thereto industrial analysis and research services engineering services design and development of computer hardware and software development of programs for data processing computer hardware and software consulting providing, installing, maintaining and updating of computer software
This development equippes your thermoform tools with an automated data logging system thus giving insight into 3 main areas in your production chain:
process control quality assurance maintenance
This practical and costeffective data logging system monitors your thermoform tool throughout the whole production run. The modular concept of soft and hardware offers great scalability and can satisfy even sophisticated customer requirements. The product developer can compile specific sets of parameters for individual products for later use which helps you standardize your process. The maintenance engineer is able to enhance the availability of the tool through precise information about its state. The data logging system can be integrated into existing as well as new thermoform tools.
