Promotec, a known maker of monitoring solutions for various machining processes recently launched its latest PROMOS 3+ system. The latest connectivity solution from this company offers a new perspective towards the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Big Data World. Sandvik Coromant classifies it as one of the most important components for Industry 4.0 initiative. PROMOS 3+ is a refined version of PROMOS 2 system that provides more process safety for different machining processes. In form of a monitoring system, this one ensures that the most right tool lies in the right place and a given process is complete only with pre-defined parameters.
Dr. Klaus Kristoffel, the managing director of Prometec, likes to add, “PROMOS 3+ stops the machine if the tool is missing, breaks, or collides with the workpiece. If the work process veers from predefined parameters, this is corrected by the system. In addition, PROMOS 3+ is tailored to user needs and provides warning of impending tool wear or breakage.” The PROMOS 3+ stays in touch with the machine constantly, it receives direct signals either from the sensors monitoring parameters or the digital drive data of machine along with force, active power or structure-borne noise working against limit values. There are numerous benefits of this system that include a longer tool life, assurance of component quality, and better process safety.
Along with, it ensures, lesser tool breakage and lesser damage in case of collision. Due to these benefits, machine shops will see that the downtime has moved to minimal and potential of unmanned machines reaches new heights. If you combine this PROMOTEC’s Compact Monitor with control elements and intelligent vibration sensor, a collision detector potential can be enhanced to the level of comprehensive multi-channel and multi-level monitoring system. Other counted benefits include complete freedom to distinct control types and some compact hardware units that need little space inside the switchgear cabinets; simple and quicker installation and requirement of very less training as most functions are automated already.
