Force output and press stroke are important parameters for evaluating the quality of pressed assemblies. The data of these measurements are recorded during the process and displayed by the software as force/stroke behavior curve F/s, F/t or s/t. Freely definable tolerances in form of force/stroke windows and stroke tolerances are provided for quality assurance of the assembly process. Using the software SCHMIDT® ControlTool, up to 8 force/stroke windows and 4 stroke tolerances can be defined. With the help of these criteria, qualitycritical areas can be monitored selectively. If the tolerances in the monitored curve areas are not met, application-specific interventions can be carried out (e. g. selection measures). Using the software SCHMIDT® ControlTool, it is easy to create tolerance criteria and to display curve behaviors exactly. For an evaluation of the behavior, the working stroke and the return stroke are important. The high resolution of our measurement systems allows a large number of measuring points that are required for a process-safe evaluation. Zoom and measuring functions are integrated into the software allowing detailed documentation about the assembly processes.
