Chain Condition Monitoring
The iwis chain elongation monitoring system
Chain Condition Monitoring (CCM) from iwis measures the wear elongation of chains in operation and gives maintenance staff timely warning when wear elongation has reached the point where the chain needs to be replaced.
CCM can be integrated quickly and easily in machinery – and even retrofitted without any special additional components – in numerous chain applications in many industries. Measurement is precise, contact-free, and requires no direct interference in the chain drive. Or simply transfer results to a computer via a USB interface.
Chain Wear Status
Chain wear status is shown on a finely graduated LED display.
Measurement results can be transferred to a computer via USB connection and displayed on a special interface.
Different speed ranges and changes of load direction are not a problem for CCM.
The CCM is equally effective on simplex, duplex and triplex chains.
Precise, contact-free measurement with no direct interference in the chain drive.
CCM is quick and easy to integrate - with no need for any special additional components - in numerous chain applications in every industry.
With CCM, iwis has implemented one of the crucial aspects of Industry 4.0: intelligent data analysis enables maintenance teams to actively prevent future malfunctions in chain applications. During the Hannover Messe trade fair in 2016, iwis was awarded the “Best of 2016” prize in the category Production Technology and Mechanical Engineering for its CCM system.
The greatest customer benefit of CCM is that it enables maintenance staff to react in good time. No long downtimes for machinery or plant, no risk of missing promised delivery deadlines, no disruption of the logistics chain – the ideal way to prevent financial loss caused by lost production. In addition, the system ensures constant monitoring of your high-precision chain applications.
