142 MMS November 2017 SYSTEMS AND SOFTWARE monitoring and control solution for machine tools. It can monitor as many as 10 simultaneous machin- ing processes for tool wear, tool breakage and missing tools, as well as provide tool and machine protection and adaptive control of machining processes. The system increases productivity and reduces operating costs by safeguarding the machining processes, shortening cycle times and optimizing tool life, as well as reducing the need for operator intervention.

The system captures data digitally or via sen- sors, and then evaluates the data and visualizes the processes transpar- ently. Sensors can usu- ally be positioned close to the process to collect data independently of the sampling rate of the controls and the layout o f t h e m a c h i n e. T h e company has a range of sensors for measur- ing feed force, torque, vibration, true power and more. Each sensor comes with a transducer which proce s se s the data for the evaluation electronics in the pro- cess monitoring system.
