Advanced Machine & Engineering Co (AME; Rockford, IL), announces the Ott/Jakob position monitoring system with electronic analog sensor, which allows users to monitor machine tool power draw-bars for performance and wear. This system indicates whether tools are clamped, unclamped, or not present. According to the manufacturer, because these units transmit information quickly to the onboard machine controls, mechanical signal rings with inductive sensors are now obsolete, and therefore negative influences of the signal rings at higher rpm can be avoided.
