High degree of positional accuracy
Manage torquing sequence
ToolTracker communicates with the nutrunner controller, communicating position and triggering torque parameters unique to the particular fastener; this saves both time and money, since only a single nutrunner is required for these kinds of complex sequences; further, the nutrunner can be disabled until the correct fastener in the sequence is reached.
Freedom of motion – Fixed mount cameras do the tracking so no physical connection with the torque gun is necessary; this gives operators full freedom of motion with a focus on the fastening. Fewer moving parts (no encoders), mean a lower cost to operate.
Tolerance to a range of lighting conditions – ToolTracker ships with infrared (IR) lighting as part of the standard kit, thus ensuring there is no minimum threshold for visible light for the system
A ToolTracker base kit includes Two (2) cameras with optics, infra-red (IR) lighting, set of three (3) calibration targets, tool tracking target and the software application for tracking. A computer and monitor are supplied as well*.
Operating system: Windows 10
Communication protocol: standard industrial protocols like Profinet or EthernetIP
*An additional electrical control panel for computer mounting may be required
