Safecontrol 4.0 - an important component for quality assurance and process reliability within your production

Safecontrol 4.0 is equipped with all the latest technology to integrate seamlessly with your other Industry 4.0 production systems. The system benefits from non-contact BlueTooth technology, QR Code spindle identification and an Android app to manage the data on your phone or tablet. The optional ruggedised tablet PC completes the set and allows instant logging and reviewing of all your spindle pull force data.

No need for individual sensing bars for each spindle type. One sensing bar with the different adaptors, reduces the cost and means only one item needs calibrating.
