Accurate Machine Setup with Pressure Mapping

Reliably producing quality product is a top priority for any manufacturing team trying to maintain a customer base. While machine setup and alignment are key factors in reliability, the longer this process takes, the less time is available for making product.

Tactile pressure mapping systems take the guesswork out of machine set-up using real-time data to verify uniform pressure distribution.  An operator uses pressure profile information to quantify tool integrity and accurate configuration for production.

Key Benefits:

  • Improve yields and reduce scrap product
  • Decrease set-up time
  • Portable system with modular sensor that can be used throughout the production floor
  • Dynamic feedback of adjustments made to equipment from real-time data
  • Reduce downtime / MTTR (mean time to repair)
