PTG is a market leader in the fastener industry in the United States, and also markets its monitoring expertise abroad. IMPAX process monitors use a patented algorithm to learn the correct force profile for a process, and then monitor that process. They make use of peak and area-under-curve analysis to provide robust consistency and machine protection.
PTG also offers products for efficiency and productivity monitoring, in the IMPAX Time Saver System. These monitors combine extensive data tracking with a user-friendly interface, to create a powerful machine efficiency and downtime tracking system. Time Saver monitors work as stand-alone units and are also networkable, forming a flexible and powerful production monitoring and downtime analysis system.
