When a "new" set of machine conditions
are then mapped into n-dimensional space, the machine's point will either fall in the data cluster of functioning machines or those of malfunctioning machines.
Resin optimization, preform design, and machine conditions
all played a role in the development, according to Milliken.
The Marlin Pocket Pro data manager facilitates in-the-field trending of machine conditions
, comparisons of baseline measurements with previous readings and alarm notifications.
Reference 1 is more specific about which parameters are monitored: "The SKF wireless machine condition
sensor collects data on three key machine conditions
: temperature (indicative of lubrication issues, increased friction, rubbing, etc.); overall machine condition
(vibrations caused by misalignment, imbalance, mechanical looseness, etc.); and rolling element bearing condition (allows damage detection and diagnosis of source as ball/roller, cage, inner, or outer raceway)." (1)
What is the relationship between the degree of marking and fabric structure and paper machine conditions
? A new method has been devised to allow papermakers to predict the felt marking quantitatively by taking into account felt construction, sheet furnish, and pressing conditions.
A self-diagnostic system with predictive and preventive maintenance management assures stable machine conditions
and repeatable, consistent performance.
Based on past experience and current conditions, the engineer can then make an educated guess as to what machine conditions
will be at any given time.
Everything at a glance: High transparency during setup and identification of machine conditions
: ifm says although the housing size has remained unchanged, the display size has been increased once again and the two switching status LEDs on the sensor head are bigger, brighter and can be clearly seen from all angles.
at-a-glance display simultaneously presents bar graphs, alarm points, numeric data and now individual channel trends, the company said, which provides a snapshot of machine conditions
at the time of shutdown.
The optimal cure time changes with variations in the injection molding machine conditions
or with variations in the rubber compound.
