New Process Monitoring System from Marposs
According to the companys press release, five products are utilized for monitoring. A vibration monitor analyzes vibrations in rotating devices, such as machine tool spindles, to permit the highest possible tool revolutions.
A force monitor is included for the direct and reliable identification and control of the strain and forces acting on the tool to optimize the cutting parameters and production cycles. A power monitor exists for controlling the variations in the cutting process through continuous and absolute surveillance of power absorbed by the machines axis or spindles. A displacement monitor measures distances in high resolution using wear-free, non-contact sensors for applications such as automatic compensation for thermal drift. Temperature monitors sense temperatures in critical machine tool sub-systems such as near-moving components, like axes, gears and spindles.
