A new series of process monitoring controls are available for new and retrofit installation on Toggle-Aire presses and assembly machines. The process controls let users monitor ram force and ram position precisely and export the information to data acquisition software packages. Featuring display and signal conditioning devices, which can be included to meet specific user requirements, they can be supplied with all new presses and rotary indexing machines or can be retrofit, the company says.
Allowing users to specify the type of process monitoring they require, the process controls are available for all 1/2"- to 10-ton presses and rotary indexing machines. Capable of displaying ram position to ±0.0005" accuracy and force to ±0.05 percent FS, these devices can provide digital readout on the machine and can also include RS232 or RS485 ports.
