Heat Treat Controls & Monitors
Controlling & Monitoring Your Heat Treat Equipment
Heat treat systems are known for accuracy and repeatability, but the importance of controlling and monitoring the system parameters and diagnostics plays a significant role in continuously producing quality parts. Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic offers standard and custom heat treating system controls and diagnostics for every new system, as well as retrofit and stand-alone packages for existing systems.
Process Controls and Monitors Include:
- Power Supply Functions
- Energy Levels
- Cycle Times
- Rotation Speed
- Part Recipes
- System Diagnostics
- Scan Position & Speed
- Quench Temperatures
- Part Drawing & Manual Storage
- Warning Alarms
- Maintenance Reminders
Providing Heat Treating Solutions Since 1916
Magnescan TQMS Controls
Magnescan TQMS (Total Quality Monitoring System) is Ajax TOCCO's premier control for heat treating applications. Magnescan provides a touch screen HMI with PC interfaced to a PLC and Servo for controlling all operating parameters on the system. Power supply functions, energy levels, scan speeds and position, quench temperatures, cycle times, rotation speed, etc., are all controlled with this system.
The system monitors all of these functions, stores all critical parameters for each part, and provides SPC data manipulation and graphing capabilities. Part recipes are stored in the PC and storage is only limited by hard drive capacity. All hardware and process alarms are displayed and stored for future reference. System diagnostics, as well as equipment drawings and manuals, are stored for maintenance or operator use. Multiple screens display equipment status, process status, part recipes, SPC functions, and much more.
Stand-Alone Process Monitor
The Process Monitor is a stand-alone package available for equipment retrofit that provides all the monitoring features of the Magnescan TQMS package without the control. Existing equipment controls are retained for equipment functionality, but the functions, including energy levels, can be monitored, stored, and manipulated for SPC by our Process Monitor, just as in the TQMS control package.
Custom Heat Treat Controls
Ajax TOCCO maintains an expert staff of controls engineers with the capability to design custom control packages for any type of process control. Any control package from the very basic to the most sophisticated can be developed for your application.
