A process variation monitoring system for mandrel bending applications has been introduced by OES. The PVM2000-MB mandrel bend monitor provides dynamic in-process monitoring of the bending process to detect excessive tension or compression on the mandrel rod that can lead to excess wear or equipment damage. It makes the operator aware of a potential problem, helping to protect tooling, reducing downtime and assisting with set-up verification. Features include two levels of alert, both audible and visual alarm options, user-friendly touch-screen operator interface and BendView software that logs each bend in a production run to a computer file.
