PROFILE WIRE MEASUREMENT IN PROCESS

With statistics module, data export and frequency Analysis

In times of Industry 4.0, measuring systems that are used exclusively for process regulation are often no longer sufficient. Rather, measurands should also be analyzed and documented. For this purpose, an additional module can be added to tactile measuring systems with diamond probes or tracer rollers that match the profile and are used instead of conventional laser shadow measuring systems.

It is the data acquisition and evaluation system F-MAS, with which real data from two wire dimensions can be recorded and, for example, evaluated by means of diagrams, statistics or frequency distributions and reports can be generated. An FFT analysis for the detection of cyclical dimensional fluctuations is also integrated, which in turn supports the search for causes of quality deviations.

Enamel-insulated rectangular wire for the electric mobility

Rectangular copper wires are usually produced with drawing dies. If the bare wire is to be enamelled for use in e.g. electric motors or transformers, it is wound up and then coated in several steps with a thin layer of enamel. During the winding and unwinding of the wire, damage can occur, which can lead to insulation faults in further processing and ultimately cause the failure of the winding during operation.

This results in the task of inline production. With the IPU320, FUHR has developed an economical inline profiling system with which the manufacturers of enamelled wire can meet the high demands of e.g. the automotive industry in terms of quality and price without having to spool the bare wire. The IPU320 combines rolling and profile drawing processes and is equipped with a closed control system, so that the compact machine can usually be retrofitted without having to adapt the existing system.
