ASSISTEC AND MONTRONIX: A SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIP



The ideal partner for industrial automation solutions

Since 1990, Montronix has been a leading supplier of process analysis and tool control solutions, machine protection devices and analysis of machine conditions. The monitoring systems developed by Montronix Manufacturing Solutions are used in industries all over the world and are helping to reduce production costs in many companies. They are able to identify equipment problems, and diagnose and solve the causes of malfunctions.

Assistec has been working for some time with Montronix. In particular, we use this company's products to meet the system integration needs within the machine tool park, such as the installation of tool monitoring systems or collision protections for the machinery.

Services offered thanks to Montronix

With the collaboration of Montronix, we are able to provide customers with efficient and precise CNC machine tool monitoring, with applications for machining centres, lathes, grinders, drills, cutters, robots, handling and self-diagnosis machines. We can provide the following services:

  • SBR - Tool and process monitoring:

With the installation of intelligent sensors on the machine and software, we are able to monitor the state of tool wear and the production process. The benefits are numerous and include elimination of scrap problems, optimisation of machine cycle times, reduction of costs due to premature tool replacement, and prevention of tool breakage caused by abnormal wear or chipping during tool life.

  • PULSE NG - Collision monitoring:

The 4.0 Ready PULSE NG system is the ideal solution to protect the CNC machine. The application uses specially designed sensors to detect rapid collisions, vibration overload, force and power, condition of bearings, linear guides, spindle, etc. The advantages are numerous, and include: machine protection in the event of collisions, vibration monitoring during machining, tool change monitoring, predictive maintenance on tool changes;

  • WIFI BOX NG - Machine status monitoring:

Portable Wi-Fi diagnostic system that detects problems on machine parts, such as wear, trend statistics, damage, geometry and clamping errors. The advantages are numerous and include: increased machine uptime, verification of maintenance performed, improved tool life, optimised cutting parameters.

Discover the industry of the future with Assistec

With Assistec, automation and innovation are Made in Italy. For 20 years we have been providing electronic and mechanical technical support for machine tools, made possible by our extensive knowledge on the CNC machine and how it interfaces with the external world, with the integration of hardware and software systems. In particular, Assistec is able to integrate third-party hardware systems, such as those seen with Montronix.

  • CNC machining of metals and plastics has a number of applications in contemporary industry and makes it possible to obtain extremely precisely designed components, whatever their size.

    In fact, CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining has revolutionized the manufacturing sector because it has offered companies the ability to shape metals and plastics with unparalleled flexibility.

    This is why we want to go into more detail about CNC machining of metals and plastics, delving into the features, advantages and applications of this innovative process.

  • CNC programming: a complete guide

    Programming a computer numerical control machine, also known as a CNC machine, is not a simple operation, and requires a certain amount of experience in the field. When we talk about CNC programming, we’re referring to the process of creating computer commands, generally G-codes, used to control these automated production tools, able to carry out precise and complex operations, often for the metalworking sector, such as cuttingmilling and drilling on a variety of materials. These instructions include: information on the movements of the tool, the speed of the spindle, feed rates, tool changes and other parameters necessary to carry out a particular process. Each process in the programming of the CNC machine tool is carried out using an integrated electronic device, usually an on-board computer.

  • A single, evolved partner

    Since it was founded 25 years ago, Assistec has developed its service offering with increasingly innovative proposals. Today, the company also stands out by offering modular robot cells and an advanced service concept

    Evolution is the basis of adaptation and survival of species. It applies in biology as well as in economic and industrial dynamics: markets change, technologies update, companies evolve.
    Antonio La Placa's story is a striking example of this evolutionary capacity: after gaining extensive experience in Germany as a FANUC technician, in 1998 he returned to Italy where he founded Assistec. Initially focused on the electronic technical support of CNC machine tools for chip removal equipped with FANUC components (numerical controls, motors, drives, power supplies, electronic boards), he soon expanded his offer with additional, increasingly advanced services.
