CNC Machining Transmission Oil Monitoring Using Level Sensors

Shops using CNC machining benefit greatly from monitoring spindle transmission oil as it aids in the optimization of the machine’s operation.  With low level indication, the operator is notified that the transmission oil needs to be replenished. This is important because without proper transmission oil level the potential damage to the machine is greatly increased.

Seed Depth Control on Agricultural Seed Planters Using Pressure Transducers

Since its invention, the seed planting machine has helped to greatly increase harvest yield. Today’s machines have adjustable downforce to make planting accuracy even easier. To do this, an air compressor on the tractor provides the pressurized air to the cylinders which act as an air-bag system.  The operator can put more or less air in the air-bags which in turn puts more or less weight on the planter wheels and allows the planter to plant the seed deeper in the soil.
