Emmaco U.K. Ltd was established in 2005 as a specialist supplier of high speed electro spindles & machine process monitoring systems. Emmaco supply all industries sectors including: aerospace, automotive, medical and general engineering subcontractors and can offer standard systems / designs or custom made systems to suit customer requirements.
The machine monitoring system was specially designed for sliding head lathes to help maximise production and increase unattended machining times. The monitoring system can detect tool wear, tool breakage, faulty parts and machine faults automatically stopping the machine tool before faulty or scrap parts are produced.
This advanced control / monitoring system utilises high precisions sensors that are installed on the machine tool to monitor power, vibration, sound and force. During the machining process the sensor signals are converted by the system to produce a signal trace on the control screen. Upper and lower limits are set using the signal trace on the control unit to monitor the machining conditions. Should the machining conditions change the system generates the appropriate machine action such as machine alarm or feed hold.
The power sensor is typically used to measure power consumption of the spindle motors plus X, Y and Z axis motors.
These sensors offer a good all round monitoring solution for applications including: turning, milling, drilling and tapping.
The acoustic sensor listens to the high frequency sounds that are generated during the machining process.
These sensors are typically used for very small or highly sensitive monitoring applications
The LW1-Pro power sensor is used when very low power consumption is being used, or when there is a very small difference in power to be measured during the machining operation.
Typically used with our High Speed Spindles or highly sensitive monitoring applications.
