Technical Tuesday Solutions Series: Combining In-Machine Part and Tool Sensors to Improve Quality and Uptime by SPC Innovations

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 (11am - 12:01pm US/Eastern)

Joel Rutzen of SPC Innovations Inc. will introduce their new Detector ETC modular system for real-time part inspection and broken tool detection. Detector is the industry standard for in-machine inspection and broken tool detection, but each system previously had separate controls and interfaces. With a leaner workforce and shorter runs, the need has grown for interface standardization and changeover flexibility. The ETC system builds on the proven effectiveness of the existing Detector line of gauges while adding electronic broken tool monitoring capability in one simple display. The new modular design, allows gauges and probes to be added or moved from machine to machine with minimal additional setup costs. Joel will detail each system's capabilities, give a demonstration of the ETC controller, and show how the systems can be integrated into the machine. He will also explain what is required to upgrade a machine that is currently using Detector gauging/detection products.

This seminar will be valuable for current Detector users, as well as those investigating real-time inspection
