Worldwide over 300 CiS systems are operating on straightening presses. During the heat treating process shafts can bend from the stresses induced by heating them. During the straightening process these shafts can crack. If undetected these shafts can be assembled into finished products, and possibly create a failure sometime in the future. The CiS is capable of monitoring 100% of those shafts that are straightened.
In applications where parts are pressed together there is a possibility of cracking. For example consider a gear being pressed on to a shaft. The process generates high stress levels that could lead to a crack. Again the CiS works in the background to monitor the process, evaluating the acoustic emissions.
