Predictive Maintenance: Sensor system for driven tools

With the new sensor system Heimatec.Cybercon 4, different tool parameters can be measured and forwarded to a monitoring station. The collected data can be used for maintenance purposes and to prevent machine failures.

Digital tool management becomes a reality with Heimatec.Cybercon 4.

The sensor system, which has been integrated into the driven Heimatec tool, can be used to measure various tool parameters such as operating time, rpm, temperature or humidity. As the company explains, the collected data are transmitted wirelessly to the monitoring station after a defined time cycle via Bluetooth Low Energy technology and can then be used for evaluation and maintenance activities.

In addition, by means of a moisture sensor (“Tsunami alarm”), the entry of liquids such as cooling lubricants into the tool or the machine is immediately reported to the control center so that major damage or machine failures (idle time) can be prevented. By using the monitoring software, tools equipped with the solution can be supervised to help manage maintenance cycles. For example, checks can be made as part of an intelligent tool management as to when the next service application is required and what measures need to be taken.
