Wheel Speed Monitor - Case Study

Wheel Speed Monitor

The Application:

Our customer needed to monitor peripheral grinding wheel speed and give an alarm output if wheel under speed or over speed occurs


Special Requirements:

The system must be able to monitor the speed of the grinding wheel as the diameter decreases. The system also had to display peripheral velocity in metres/sec and speed in RPM.

The Solution:

A number of technical meetings were held. Goodwin engineers developed application specific software, then designed and built the prototype console to customer specification.

The Result:

The prototype unit was tested on customers machine. All the tests proved to be successful and the wheel speed monitor console was passed for production use.

It has given the operator valuable information which has enabled machining efficiency to be maintained thus ensuring consistency and quality.

A number of units have since been manufactured and fitted which continue to help maintain quality standards.
