How polymerSENSE® works
Our xSENSE™ ultrasonic, non-invasive sensors continuously capture data from your machines in real-time.
Data is received by our xSCAN™ transceiver, screw and barrel wear is interpreted and data is stored in a secure cloud server.
Data is analysed and wear results are reported via our custom dashboard, allowing your team to visualise machine health and prioritise activity.
Your team is empowered to take the action required to operate and maintain productive, efficient, and sustainable machines.

Visualise screw & barrel wear in real-time
polymerSENSE® is an innovative sensing technology, allowing you to capture real-time data to monitor the wear between the outer barrel and revolving screw of an extruding machine.
If undetected, this can result in a number of problems: energy loss through tribological contact (e.g. wear and friction), reduction in product quality, potential lengthy machine (and production line) downtime for unplanned maintenance as well as unnecessary and costly screw replacements.
Be at the cutting-edge of predictive maintenance
By reacting to real-time data, polymerSENSE® allows you to implement a cutting-edge, Industry 4.0 predictive maintenance cycle that negates the requirement to carry out the ‘normal’ manual measurement and maintenance cycles which can result in extensive periods of downtime.
Create sustainable and healthy production lines
Using our real-time service, you will gain actionable insights and benefit from a value-added service that allows you to take informed action to increase uptime and productivity efficiency. You will also benefit from environmental gains by reducing waste and optimising energy use; creating sustainable and healthy production lines.
Measure and monitor a range of metrics
Tribosonics’ SMART technology can also be implemented on polymer processing lines to demonstrate real-time, online and inline remote monitoring of parameters, in addition to screw and barrel wear, including: contaminants, viscosity, die wear, extrusion dimensioning and polymer melt properties.
