The SandTrac with Totalizer from Sanding Systems Consulting, Inc. provides four important functions - monitors, prompts, tracks data and provides results. It consist of a highly visible light system located on the front of the machine directly over the in-feed conveyor belt that reflects real-time usage patterns on a one to one scale. By measuring and indicating where product has been fed, this light system prompts the operator to feed parts in the least used sections of the bed. It allows the operator to maintain a log of usage statistics based on any variable that needs tracking. Items like individual belts, platens or even jobs can be tracked by amount of material fed into the machine and the average area of the belt used. Facilitates improved, consistent, sanded surface quality due to achieving even abrasive mineral wear which is one of the factors affecting color variations, the company says. Evens out belt use and machine wear, extends belt life, reduces belt changes, downtime, and overall costs. The SandTrac System Includes one prompter/monitor device (consisting of 32, 40, 48, or 56 in. LED panel), computer, SandTrac software with Totalizer, universal mounting cable and all necessary cabling.
