Marposs offers the Artis CTM-V5 system with DDU-4 torque and feed-force sensor for identifying tool breakage and worn tools. The system is well-suited for monitoring drilling, tapping and thread-forming operations, as well as forming processes such as stir friction welding, by means of axial force and torque measurement. A rotor based on the piezoelectric principle can be mounted to toolholders, spindles, or rotating or fixed shafts. Quality-control checks for issues such as tool wear, tool breakage and torn-out threads can be performed automatically during the machining process. The system is said to improve product quality while limiting downtime and reducing tool changes.
The company will also display its Artis Genior modular system for tool, machine and process monitoring.
