Plastic Injection Molding and Die-Cast Machines operate similarly as most machines have 4 structural Tie Bars to support the Die Clamp Load. Helm Clamp-On Strain Ring or Helm Tie Bar Sensors may be utilized to Monitor Machines for the following:
- Protect Machine
- Protect Tooling
- Make Higher Quality Parts
- Equalize Load On all 4 Tie Bars
- Prevent Tie Bar Breakage
- Prevent Flashing
The systems feature trend sampling routines, to arrive at an average learned force benchmark for each channel. There are adjustable high & low tolerance alarms for each channel, established as a percentage of allowable deviation from the sampled values.
Helm has three monitoring options available. Specialty input modules for Allen-Bradley PLC’s provide the strain gage input for the load cell transducer. The Helm PTM and RLG systems offer solidly engineered stand-alone systems; the PTM a more sophisticated monitor with Windows Embedded OS and a touch screen display.
