Gefran announced the release of the new App for QE1008-W, a system measuring deformation in injection moulding applications, created by Sensormate - a company of the Gefran Group operating in the development, production and sale of industrial sensors.
QE1008-W is a complete set including deformation sensors which are easily and rapidly assembled thanks to their press-on magnetic technology. It is the preferred solution by many of the leading machine builders and injection moulders to simultaneously measure column deformation and the clamping force of the moulds of the press. QE1008-W is completely wireless, in order to effectively meet the needs of smart factories. Through the new Sensormate App, available for Android, Windows and iOS, signals coming from sensors are detected in wireless mode by the QE Booster receiver box. The latter is equipped with a Bluetooth interface and transmits measurement data to a PC, smartphone or tablet for further processing and analysis.
The App allows visualising the measurement values for the specific sensors, as well as the compensated elongation in curve of the 4 columns of the press, and their average value. These data are used to calculate the maximum standard deviation from the average, and the operator will receive a warning if anomalies are detected. The application also displays the clamping force of the machine both in kilonewtons and in tonnes. Furthermore, the system measures column elongation, which is a useful value to prevent overloading or potential damage early, during the design phase. On top of having a diagram for dynamic measurements, the App also features several new functions, designed to support users and simplify fast data archiving processes by exporting files in a CSV format, ensuring a traceable quality.
