The new iwis chain elongation monitoring system CCM (Chain Condition Monitoring) measures the wear elongation of chains in operation and gives maintenance staff early warning that the chain is worn and needs to be replaced.
The CCM system can be quickly and easily integrated in numerous chain applications and retrofitted in existing plants and machines without the need for special add-on components for the chain. The device determines the wear in a chain drive and notifies maintenance personnel where and when preventive maintenance is required. Operating state and wear status are indicated by LEDs and readings can be transmitted to a computer through USB and viewed with a special interface. Because measurement is contactless, the chain drive is not affected in any way: no additional deflection pulleys or supports are needed.
