Combining In-Machine Part and Tool Sensors to Improve Quality and Uptime

Joel Rutzen of SPC Innovations Inc. will introduce their new Detector ETC modular system for real-time part inspection and broken tool detection.  Detector is the industry standard for in-machine inspection and broken tool detection, but each system previously had separate controls and interfaces.  With a leaner workforce and shorter runs, the need has grown for interface standardization and changeover flexibility. The ETC system builds on the proven effectiveness of the existing Detector line of gauges while adding electronic broken tool monitoring capability in one simple display.  The new modular design, allows gauges and probes to be added or moved from machine to machine with minimal additional setup costs.  Joel will give a demonstration of the ETC system and system integration.  He will also explain what is required to upgrade a machine that is currently using Detector gauging products..
