The reducer lubrication system (when included), has pressure, flow and temperature sensors to indicate system performance. Operators are also able to monitor key health indicator parameters in the drive power unit, providing an early indicator of potential power unit issues.

Activ-Check enables processors to take advantage of real-time predictive maintenance by providing early notifications, by text or email, of potential extruder failures. Machine operators are alerted to issues, reducing unplanned downtime and collecting valuable data. Continuous monitoring of production machine status is available on smart devices and remote PCs. Key monitored parameters include extruder reducer, lubrication, motor characteristics, the drive power unit, barrel heating and cooling. The system is easy to operate using overview screens that provide a quick reference of monitor points and provide a graphic indication of measurements. Users can touch a location to view details, or use on-screen set-up for email or text notifications. Vibration sensors on the extruder reducer provide data about the condition of the gears, bearings and lubrication system. The extruder motor is supplied with combination temperature sensors and vibration sensors.

“The Activ-Check system provides much- needed data for processors to improve performance, including being able to plan production around scheduled maintenance activities,” said John Clemens, director of extrusion controls at Davis-Standard. Half the size, twice the flex Cicoil has introduced a new, ultra-flexible micro IDC ribbon cable. Unlike stiff PVC and Teflon versions, the space-saving, 0.025 inch pitch Cicoil version is designed for tight routing applications that require
