ARBURG uses the QuantumX MX440A amplifier module as a service tool for setting up and adjusting its injection molding machines. Services need to be flexible to enable cyclical maintenance intervals at the customer's premises to be efficiently handled. Here QuantumX is convincing in every aspect: Transducers are instantly identified thanks to full TEDS support. Measurement can be immediately started and does not require any complex parameterization. In addition, the universal connectors provided by QuantumX support all common transducer technologies.
Further advantages are high measurement quality, compact size as well as an Ethernet connection to the notebook - and not at least - optional integration into proprietary software. A working standard calibration certificate is electronically stored in every device - proof of high quality.
Service kit including sensor, amplifier and software
ARBURG has even developed a complete "Service Case" for its service engineers; it includes the MX440A amplifier and four sensors for measuring pressure, displacement, speed and force. The sensor calibration data is stored on the retrofitted TEDS chip in the connector. The kit also comprises a CD with data acquisition software developed by ARBURG specifically for this purpose and the operating manual.
The service kit is a useful service tool for setting up and adjusting ARBURG injection molding machines and is used throughout the world. It permits efficient servicing at the customer's premises with a proven high level of quality - and guarantees the extremely long service life of ARBURG machines.
Flexible measuring trolley for partly automated final assembly
QuantumX is also used in other applications at ARBURG - for example in flexible final assembly. Here the company uses the MX840A amplifier which - depending on the requirements - is available on measuring trolleys wherever it is needed during the production process.
