Schmitt Industries, Inc. designs, manufactures, and sells computer-controlled vibration detection, balancing and process control systems for the worldwide machine tool industry. The company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Schmitt Measurement Systems, Inc. (SMS), designs, manufactures, and sells laser and white light sensors for distance, dimensional and area measurement for various commercial applications, laser-based microroughness measurement products for the semiconductor wafer and hard disk drive industries and for other industrial applications, laser-based surface analysis and measurement products for various scientific applications, and ultrasonic measurement products that measure the levels of propane tanks and transmit that data through satellite to a secure Website for display. The company also provides sales and service for Europe and parts of Asia through its wholly owned subsidiary, Schmitt Europe Limited, located in Coventry, England and through its sales representative office located in Shanghai, China. Segments The company’s segments include Balancer and the Measurement. Balancer Segment This segment offers Schmitt Dynamic Balance System (SBS), which consists of a vibration sensor, a computer control unit, and a balance head that is placed either externally on the grinding wheel spindle with the use of a spindle mounted adaptor or internally inside the spindle bore. The SB-5500 control panel contains up to four slots for additional circuit boards designed for specific functions, such as manual balancing, balancing using hydro chambers and process monitoring, which engages in the detection and analysis of high frequency noise, known as acoustic emission (AE), generated by the grinding process. SBS products are designed as economical yet highly precise measurement and control devices for permanent or portable installation on grinding machines that can detect and correct imbalance caused by vibration as small as 0.02 microns. Customers can also detect and analyze the AE signal generated during grinding or wheel dressing to help monitor and improve the grinding process. Customers include both end user operators, as well as manufacturers of grinding machines worldwide for various industries that utilize the grinding process, including the automotive, industrial, aerospace, and medical industries where specifications and operating tolerances on machined parts are increasingly precise. The SB-5500 is fully automated, eliminating the need to pre-balance parts, such as grinding wheels. The SB-5500 also includes an optional Acoustic Emission Monitoring System (AEMS) control card, which uses proprietary acoustic sensor technology to monitor the very high frequency signals (known as AE) generated on the grinding machine during key events in the grinding process. The AEMS card allows rapid, automatic grinding wheel in-feed, right up to the point of initial contact of the grinding wheel with a new part loaded in the machine. The system can automatically detect the initial contact and report this event to the machine control, stopping the wheel in-feed without operator intervention. The AEMS card allows the grinding machine’s operating system (known as a computer numeric control or CNC system) on the machine to monitor the acoustic levels and detect any unexpected contact when it happens. The system then reports that abnormal contact and instructs the CNC program to stop the grinding process, usually within one millisecond. The SB-5500 also offers the ExactDress process control card as part of the AEMS system to automatically monitor and control the grinding wheel dressing process by comparing the AE signal pattern of a wheel dress to a stored master AE signal pattern and by indicating when the dressing process has been completed. Additional SBS products include the SB-2000 and the AE-1000. The SB-2000 is a compact manual balancing system offering both one and two plane manual balancing capabilities. The system comes in a machine installation version (SB-2000) and a portable version (SB-2000-P). Each version of the system displays up to 4 digits of resolution for vibration and 6 digits for RP
