The Argotech system monitors variations in machining conditions to control processes and part quality, while avoiding collisions and optimizing tooling costs. Full process control is a key element in “lights out” manufacturing and reducing labor costs. The company offers a range of sensors to monitor conditions such as tool wear and fracture, force of machine components and tooling, overload conditions and product quality.

The Argotech system monitors variations in machining conditions to control processes and part quality, while avoiding collisions and optimizing tooling costs. Full process control is a key element in “lights out” manufacturing and reducing labor costs.

The company offers a range of sensors to monitor conditions such as tool wear and fracture, force of machine components and tooling, overload conditions and product quality. All sensors are compatible with the Argotech PA-2 and PA-4 programmable controllers, which can accept as many as four sensor channels. Sensors measure process variations in power consumption, force/strain, acoustic emissions and vibration.
