IntelliCyl Force/Distance Monitoring and Quality Control System
The IntelliCyl® is the successful combination of HyperCyl’s hydra-pnuematic cylinder systems and state of the art electronic technology. IntelliCyl® was designed for applications where continuous monitoring of materials and processes is critical to the successful assembly of components. IntelliCyl® consists of two options:
Low voltage Linear transducer (LVLT)
Fully integrated Load Cell installed on the end of the cylinder rod.
Both devices provide for an analog feedback signal through an analog card to the PLC. The feedback signals indicate distance (cylinder travel) to ±.001” and force(lbs.) applied to the tooling. The ability to monitor cylinder and tooling travel and force during the assembly process allows for:
Quality Improvement through in-process verification
IntelliCyl, HyperView-Press – verify dimensional stack-ups before you do work, and monitor the assembly process while you do work
May eliminate costly EOL testing and destructive testing
Drives quality into your assemblies. Drives out deviation
Traceability – long-term data collection.
Measure a part height (prior to assembly)
Confirm multi-component stack-up dimension(s)
Measure and confirm correct component(s) match-up
Confirm end of stroke (extend/retract)
Control distance travel durning approach and power stroke cycles
Monitor tool wear
Monitor and confirm I.D./O.D. tolerance fit during assembly
With known distance values, continuously monitored individual and multi-component finished part deviation from user set benchmarks or standards.
