Predictive Computing Monitors Saw Blades



Cosen Saws, a manufacturer of industrial band saws, has introduced MechaLogix Cosen Predictive Computing - a cloud-based system with an innovative feature that monitors the performance of a saw blade and can accurately forecast the number of remaining cutting hours left before a saw blade dulls and is no longer cutting with precision or it has a complete breakage.

"You can know the unknown," said Joshua Sun, Business Development Manager for Cosen Saws. "This completely changes the game for cloud-based machine monitoring systems. Our customers have told us how important it is for them to minimize waste and scrap. Having a blade fail in the middle of a cut is one of the primary causes of waste and scrap and it negatively impacts profits."

"With this new technology, both operators and management will know the remaining useful life of a band saw blade," Sun said. "Gone are the days of tracking machine hours and accumulated cutting area. Now you have advance knowledge of the days and hours before a replacement saw blade is required. That is what MechaLogix Cosen Predictive Computing does."

MechaLogix also provides real-time performance data and can report issues like excessive vibration, overheating and changes in fluid line pressure. The root cause of an issue is reported in real time which equates to minimal down time and more efficient operations.

The technology is intuitive and user customizable. Adjustable alert notification settings work seamlessly with the mobile app. "We have been delighted with the enthusiastic response from our customers who have partnered with us during the course of the program," said Sun.

The first public demonstration of MechaLogix took place at EMO MILANO from October 5-10, 2015. On November 9-12, the unveiling of the product in the United States will take place at the FABTECH 2015 trade show being held at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

The comprehensive MechaLogix program includes:

  • Blade life assessment - Monitoring and alert notification of a saw blade's remaining useful life. The technology will provide advance notice of required saw blade replacement.
  • Increased machine efficiency and machine life - The MechaLogix technology provides real-time analysis of individual components and overall machine health status. It can send notification of abnormal conditions from motors and bearings. It also alerts about frequent consumable items like hydraulic and cutting fluid.
  • Increased operational efficiency - MechaLogix technology can provide production reports to aid in identifying best practices and training needs. The monitoring and notification system alerts the operation when machine maintenance is needed which aids efficiency in the scheduling of planned events.
