Helm Instrument Company, ALG-1100 Analog LoadGard Tonnage Monitor Platen Size 8 ½” x 5 ½” ForceGard Loadgard Force Monitor Continuous force monitoring with Hi/Lo alarm setpoints. Helm tonnage monitors incorporate the most advanced signal conditioning technology available to the industry. All tonnage monitor systems feature built-in machine protection alarms and automatic high-low limits for online part quality monitoring and control. Choose from a variety of channel models and readouts including the embedded PC with touch screen display. Invented by Helm over 25 years ago, tonnage monitor trend alarming allows you to establish the quality window that the process must operate within. Limits are selectable from 5% to 45%, in 5% increments. Once the forming process begins, the Trend alarms are automatically set above and below the sample benchmark value. Machine shutdown is activated if the forming force varies outside the tonnage monitoring range.

Changes in material thickness, hardness or temper are quickly detected with this tonnage alarming method. Upper and lower limits are continuously adjusted during the production run based on the average tonnage developed over the last 100 machine strokes. Adaptive learn alarming is ideal for high speed forming operations and guarantees precision tonnage control.
