November 10, 2016 - PROMETEC, a manufacturer of monitoring solutions for machining processes and part of Sandvik Coromant, is releasing its PROMOS 3+ system. This connectivity solution, which provides a first look at the world of Big Data and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), is considered an important component for the Industry 4.0 initiative from Sandvik Coromant.
PROMOS 3+, a refinement of the PROMOS 2 system, offers process safety for machining processes. As a monitoring system, it ensures that the right tool is in place and that the process is completed within defined parameters.
The PROMOS 3+ monitoring system is in continuous communication with the machine. It gets its signals either directly from the machine’s digital drive data or from sensors that monitor parameters such as force, structure-borne noise, or active power against limit values. Furthermore, less tool breakage is likely to occur, along with less damage in the event of a collision. Thanks to PROMETEC’s Compact Monitor, vibration sensor, and control element, a collision detector has been created that can be scaled into a comprehensive multi-level, multi-channel monitoring solution.
