Plug-and-Play Machine Monitoring

The Genior Modular CMS-02 single-channel, compact machine monitoring system from Marposs provides collision monitoring and crash damage mitigation in machine tools.

To protect and safeguard machine tools and minimize the risk of downtime that can occur by programming, setup or operating errors, the Genior Modular CMS-02 machine monitoring system from Marposs can be integrated into machine tools, equipment or robots to measure elastic deformation and forces that indicate damage potential. It generates a stop signal within one millisecond to alleviate or eliminate machine crashes resulting in high repair costs and long downtime.

The Genior Modular GEMCMS-02 single-channel, compact machine monitoring system from Marposs Corporation (Auburn Hills, MI) is for collision monitoring and crash damage mitigation in machine tools. It can be used as a stand-alone system or in combination with other Genior Modular solutions, achieving both collision detection and process monitoring simultaneously and visualizing the processes in parallel. It can be integrated into machine tools, equipment or robots, providing a better way to protect and safeguard machine tools and minimizing the risk of downtime that can occur by programming, setup or operating errors. As with the entire modular system, the GEMCMS-02 is independent of control or machine type and can be retrofit to existing machines. It provides protection from the very first part, with no teach cut required. The system monitors the deformation of the spindle housing structure via a piezo strain sensor that detects irregularities in the production process.

The GEMCMS-02 measures elastic deformation in the range of 1/10 of a micron, and both slow and dynamically (impact or shock) increasing forces that can indicate damage potential. It then generates a stop signal within one millisecond, helping to alleviate or even eliminate machine crashes that can result in high repair costs and long downtime. The system kit consists of an electronic module, a sensor and a software package for configuration, visualization and data management that is achieved by connecting an Ethernet cable to a Windows®-based industrial PC unit, machine control panel running in Windows OS, or IPC4 dedicated monitor. There are three operation modes and three limits per mode (warning, soft and hard stop outputs limits). Detailed event records are captured (including date, time and other signals) and can be used for further evaluation. Operators of all skill levels can benefit from this immediately and without having to attend complex training courses. To date, CMS collision systems have been installed on more than 10,000 machine tools, handling systems and industrial robots worldwide.
