Marposs Corp. will feature the Brankamp CMS collision monitoring system, designed to reduce or eliminate machine collisions that generally lead to high repair costs and downtime. The system employs sensors to detect dynamically increasing forces with damage potential within milliseconds and sends a stop signal to the machine drives, minimizing standstill and setup times, as well as time-consuming repair work.

The system is suited for single or small-series production scenarios, is said to be easy to install and can be retrofitted to existing machines. It does not require complicated machine interfaces or special adjustment procedures, and can be run by operators of virtually all skill levels without complex training. In case of a collision, the basic system serves as a “black box” to record information such as date, time and crash value. On the upgraded GT-CMS version, information such as process overview, analysis and statistics are provided through a visualization and human interface running into the machine control or on a separate industrial PC unit using Windows or Linux operating systems.
