Our Monitor System
The basic function of DELTA FORCE™ is to determine if the press force exerted, and the distance traveled, is as expected for each press cycle. DELTA FORCE™ performs these functions by continuously monitoring the force along the entire pressing stroke, plotting this information on a graph, and checking to see if it passes all of the predefined test window. The test windows are configured in the part setup screen. Additionally, the press distance must fall between a user defined minimum distance and a user defined maximum distance. If the data falls outside the assigned limits the press monitor sets the FAIL flag to be processed by the press control. A visual display of the captured data for the entire press stroke is shown after each completed cycle, and stored to the hard drive.
