Reduce errors when machining workpieces with a high degree of automation

Thanks to their flexibility, milling machines and machining centers are among the most commonly found machine tools.

Their range of types extends from simple 3-axis-systems to complex multi-axis machining centers to hybrid machines that combine, for example, milling and laser machining.

The main pre-requisites for machining workpieces: Correct positioning and exact tool guidance at high speed. These requirements present a challenge for the controlling of measuring systems, because the degree of automation is also constantly increasing especially when machines are interconnected and used for the production of mass production parts.

Application examples

Monitoring tool clamping
Machine Mount Distributed I/O
Monitoring end stop positions
Detecting the rotation angle on the C-axis
Identifying tools in the magazine
Matching and tracking workpieces
