The SCM Autograph is an extremely versatile controller that combines Helm force monitoring circuitry and the latest in embedded PC technology. Powered by our new SCM signal conditioner module, this advanced process control system features real time signature analysis, unlimited job recipe storage and complete load monitor functionality. With built-in provisions for housing two to eight channels of monitoring, the system is easily configured to fit your specific application. All operator adjustments including machine capacity limits, tooling protection alarms, parts counters and job download are made through the rugged, full color touch screen display.
When interfaced with the Helm HR-1101 resolver, the SCM Autograph integrates force with crank angle for detailed thru-the-stroke monitoring. Upper and lower control limits are set around the entire or pre-selected areas of the forming signature for verifying the quality of each part produced. In addition to the upper and lower control limits, the press curve as established by the machine builder is digitized to become an alarm set-point. Machine shutdown is initiated if the tonnage exceeds these limits at any time during the machine cycle.
The SCM Autograph also features our unique DELTA-TRACK sampling technique that automatically ignores the variations in force caused by normal process changes. This allows the system to be sensitive enough to detect the subtle variations in tonnage due to changes in material thickness or hardness, inconsistent die lube, worn tooling, slugs, splits and wrinkles.
|HT-400 Strain Gain sensors mount directly to the columns of stamping presses and forging machines.|
|SG-312 die implant sensors provide pinpoint force monitoring in progressive dies, transfer tooling or multi-die forming operations.|
|A variety of strain gage load cells with force measurement capacities from 100 pounds to 10,000 tons are available from Helm.|
