Here’s what leading manufacturers
say about PCS…

Company: Allen-Bradley, a Division of Rockwell International
Application: 20-station high speed trunnion machine
Conditions: Congested; total cycle time 1-1/2 seconds; in operation 24 hours a day
"We’re pushing this machine to the limit. Something as seemingly simple as a drill breaking had previously caused days of downtime. Who would have guessed that this little $800 sensor could have such a significant impact on our operation."

Company: Eaton Corporation
Application: 45 sensors operating on high-speed Hydromat® rotary transfer machines
Conditions: Congested; very fast cycle time; chip & coolant
"They’ve prevented the particularly catastrophic effects of broken tools on these machines. If a drill breaks, you can conceivably take out as many as 16 stations with it. The PCS units are a bargain by comparison."

Company: Husco International
Transfer Line
Conditions: Harsh; cast iron sludge; water-soluble semi-synthetic coolant
"It’s a heavy-duty environment. When a tool breaks, six others down the line can quickly go with it. It only takes a few of those to pay for a PCS system. The PCS units are about half the price, and from what we’ve seen of their performance, they’ll pay for themselves almost immediately."

Company: Parker Hannifin
Application: Eight-spindle screw machines
Conditions: High-speed machine producing 1,200 parts per hour
"We’ve got a PCS 100 checking just one drill, but if that drill breaks and goes undetected, a part could take out the rest of the machine. With the PCS, we’ve yet to have a problem."

A typical day in the tough life of a Positive Contact sensor.
