Schwer und Kopka GmbH - effiziente Prozess- und  Werkzeugüberwachung Ihrer Produktionsmaschinen
The visualization of the process monitoring can also be done via existing PC-based machine controls or separate PC systems. In this case, the hardware for the monitoring electronics and signal processing is housed in a "black box" that communicates with the visualization computer via an Ethernet interface. A task switch allows the machine operator to switch between different tasks such as machine control, process monitoring, data acquisition or other applications.

We have solutions available for PCs with Windows and Windows CE operating systems.

Process monitoring system for forming presses with controls based on Windows CE. The visualization of the process data and the force curves takes place via the existing screen of the machine control. The visualization graphics and the type of monitoring functions depend on the respective machine type and the controller.

  • monitoring integrated in machine control
  • switch between the views of the control and the monitoring function via touch-screen
  • common, uniform operating interface
  • based on Windows CE
  • three different versions:
    • System SC 500i for sensing press loads with sensors mounted to the machine frame (left/right/total), each with its own overload limits. The press load curves are additionally monitored by envelopes and trending limits.
    • System SC 600i for two-channel monitoring of rolling forces with envelope technology including an expert puzzle to monitor returns.
    • System SC Loadmatic-6 for step-related monitoring of the individual forming operations with envelope technology as well as an expert puzzle to detect rotated heads.
  • all versions can be combined in a single system e. g. for presses with integrated rolling station (frame force measurement plus monitoring of step and rolling forces)
