Process Monitoring CEP 400
The process monitoring CEP 400 has been specifically designed for the TOX-Joining process. The CEP 400 helps you to monitor and document all quality parameters related to the TOX-Clinching process.
Functions and Characteristics of the CEP 400
- Monitors Clinch and Joining Processes
- Delivers important information about the process course
- Special Clinch Monitoring with window technique
- Choice of up to 64 test programs
- Real name (40 letters) for program storage
- 64 Sensor configurations per channel
- 4 Password levels: operator, foreman, machine builder, manufacturer
- 8 digital in- and outputs
- Status of the 8 digital I/O ports displayed
- Ring buffer: last 100 measurrements with time stamp
- Incl. TOXsoftWare for parameter setting and data recording
- Analog display of TOX-control dimension "X"
- Choice of built-in panel version or IP 54 housing for 1-& 2-channel units
Force sensors measure the pressforce during the joining process. A position sensor monitors the cylinder travel to achieve the quality control dimension “X”. Once the position sensor signals that the “X” dimension has been reached (bottom end position), then the measured force values are compared to the nominal values. The TOX joint is OK when the measured force value falls within the preset force range. The resulting bottom thickness “X” is proportional to the shear and pull strengths of the joint, as long as the joining parameters and expected tool life are observed and maintained.
