AE-1000 Monitoring System
Acoustic Emission Monitoring System
The SBS AE -1000 reduces air grinding time and alerts the operator of crash conditions by using proprietary acoustic detection technology to monitor and analyze the high frequency signals generated by the grinding process.
The AE-1000 reports initial contact between the wheel and a new part to the machine control system so it can stop wheel in-feed without operator intervention, which can save up to 20% of the typical cycle time. It can also detect and report abnormal contact from an incorrectly loaded part or fixture within milliseconds, allowing the in-feed to be stopped, avoiding a crash, damage or injury.
