AFFORDABLE TECHNOLOGY for EFFICIENT SCRAP REDUCTION from MOYER
The next generation of computerized state of the art length
No memory loss during power failure
Automatic zero calibration
Modular Construction interfaces to devices such as DataMyte,
PC's or industrial controllers
Our Mean Machine maximizes spring maker's profits by reducing
scrap, improving quality and reducing labor costs.
Digital processing and software routines plus a temperature stabilized probe
provide measuring accuracy of down to 0.0002". Our patented software program
collects and analyzes in-process statistical data such as ranges, centering and
randomness. True proportional correction is applied as required depending upon
measured free length over or under relative to the mean target length dimension
and previously measured lengths.
Results: "Smart" pitch adjustments produce the best spring
length possible from a given coiler. Customer quote, "I have never seen this
job run like this... 66,000 run and 14 sorted." Your customers receive parts
closely grouped around a mean target length. X bar and R charting is valid
since the center seeking algorithm typically provides normally distributed
Quick controller set-ups are made by push button setting including
automatically zeroing the meter. Immediate feedback to the operator of each
spring's free length reduces time spent verifying the target mean free length.
Results: Reduction in labor costs for you, the spring maker!
