Grinding machine acoustic sensor
for grinding machines
The in-spindle AE is a sound sensor for grinding machines. This product is a non-contact and come int two formats. It has two different types namely telescopic type and spiral-cable type. The telescopic types contains a slide tube that facilitates the installation and sits inside a 4 mm bore in a grinding machine spindle or rotary diamond dresser unit. With this configuration, it enables the acoustic sensor to spin having the spindle and to be in close proximity to the grinding event.
In addition, the spiral cable type operates on the same non-contact principle. The telescopic slide is changed with the spiral cable. The in-spindle sensor is useful for OEMs manufacturing internal/ external grinding spindles or rotary diamond dressers. Schmitt also produced mounting kits for end-user applications where a spindle bore is available. Mounting an AE sensor in this way gives a more direct signal and increased sensitivity.
