Jakob Antriebstechnik announce that they are now offering their Force Monitoring System FMS in three different versions. The new types considerably expand the application areas of the system, also because of the scalable design. As the manufacturers insist, the solutions provide safety for man and machine as well as increased processing quality. The Jaw XXL version offers a force monitoring system integrated into the clamping jaw and is said to be versatile in its deployment. The Jaw S is a miniaturized version in which the system is integrated in a special clamping jaw that can be placed on a standardized clamping device instead of a conventional jaw. The third model called Pad is used for processing large parts and is inserted between the clamping element and the workpiece. All versions can transmit their measured values wirelessly to different devices, such as a hand-held display with multiple clamping force indicators or directly to a machine control. As a result, an emergency stop can be carried out in the event of any sudden drop in force. Depending on the specific design, the measuring range is recorded from 0 to 1,000 kN.
