WinTech – Setting Process Monitoring 24 November 2017

GESIPA® is able to provide special setting tools that can be used for monitoring and storing results during the production of critical workpieces or in automated setting processes. 

WinTech Setting Process Monitoring is ideally suited for challenging setting processes when joining safety relevant workpieces, e.g in the automotive, aviation industry, heating industries or in access engineering.

WinTech Setting Process Monitoring analyses the setting process based on stroke and force sensors via an integrated electronic system. By means of special software up to three windows can be defined for analysis. The results of the setting process are shown by a coloured LED installed in the tool base - the data can also be stored and retrieved for further use. The WinTech Setting Process Monitoring function is possible with the proven blind riveting tool TAURUS® C of GESIPA.

Using WinTech Setting Process Monitoring provides a number of benefits for the user. This technology provides high process safety by documenting each individual setting process. Thus any resulting costs for possible discrepancies in quality can be avoided.

Setting process monitoring via WinTech technology can be used for both setting blind rivets and blind rivet nuts. For setting blind rivets the TAURUS C can be equipped with the WinTech Setting Process Monitoring function. The pneutamic setting tool with integrated setting process monitoring is specially suited for the production of critical workpieces. For setting blind rivet nuts GESIPA can fit the FireFox® 2 C or the FireRex® with the required multi-window technology. Due to its special design the FireRex® is able to set blind rivet nuts at any desired angle in industrial production processes. It can easily be integrated in existing robot applications, production systems or in linear slide assemblies.
