Mecal TT Bench Press with G3+
Crimp Force Analyser
Since Circuitmaster introduced the first CFM
system to the market in 1992, the implementation of force analysis in the
production of wire harnesses has become common place. At the heart of the
system is the CFM unit. This has been developed and continuously improved
for over 20 years by Circuitmaster and our products are found around the
world in most manufacturing plants.
Circuitmaster have now completed the next generation of its successful CFM
range, the G3, and we have included many new ground breaking features to
meet the increasing quality control demands of the modern production
factory. The key
features of the new system are: -
1. Ram Encoder: This eliminates false fails due to mains fluctuations
affecting press speed. This filters out all press motor speed changes whilst
still allowing signature analysis to take place.
2. In-Line sensor: Circuitmaster have developed a low cost in-line sensor.
The further away the sensor is from the forces working on the crimp, the
more unwanted forces are detected, this can cause false fails in production.
3. Evaluation Unit: The G3 incorporates a high powered modern processor at
the heart of the unit. This has allowed us to automatically set zones and
sensitivity of the unit. Although zone adjustment is available, it is now
rarely ever needed. The above hardware features have been proven to produce
a very stable and reliable force monitoring system that can be used on all
production presses. It performs in harsh conditions and is very easy to set
up and use in production.
4. For presses that can not incorporate either encoders or in-line sensors,
there is an encoderless system and wall sensors available. However, as
described above, and with all units not using encoders/In-line sensors, a
reduction in performance could be expected.
