Preventive Maintenance Via iPad
GTI Spindle Technology’s VibePro system enables users to monitor vibrations, temperature, velocity and other critical machine information.
Vibration Analyzer Integrates with Bluetooth Temperature Sensor
The VibePro and iVibraMeter applications on GTI Spindle Technology’s iPad vibration analyzer now integrate with Node Therma, a Bluetooth temperature sensor that communicates wirelessly with the vibration analyzer.
Vibration Analysis System for the iPad
GTI will showcase its VibePro vibration analysis application (app), which collects and analyzes vibration signals to an iPad at IMTS 2012.
Taking Spindle Health Seriously
Minimizing machine downtime became all the more important as this shop began targeting higher-production automotive work. To that end, it is in the early stages of implementing predictive spindle monitoring technology to head off problems that could take out key machines for extended periods of time.
Instant Spectrum Analysis
The wireless machine health monitor (MHM) from GTI Spindle provides full predictive maintenance information that is accessible anywhere, anytime, the company says, and there are virtually no limitations of sensor type or number of contact points. The system allows users to access vibration signatures, temperature, pressure and other vital information to ensure machine health.
Closed Loop System For High Speed Spindles
As high speed machining has become more common, machine tool spindle technology has continued to advance. Spindle lubrication has been a special area of concern, and significant improvements have been appearing steadily.
Grinding Spindles Take Grease To Higher Speed
Conventional wisdom has it that grease lubrication is fine for grinding spindles so long as speeds stay fairly low. As speed approaches 10,000 to 15,000 rpm, however, then heat becomes a major problem, leaving little choice but to go to an oil-and-air mist system.
A new remote spindle monitoring technology offers a way to predict spindle issues before they become major problems that adversely affect production.
