TOOL CONDITION MONITORING

PM Analytics offers optional modules for monitoring different machine tools using sensor data. This enables both the control of the tool condition (TCM) and the execution of predictive maintenance.

Monitoring of milling machines
This TCM module enables the condition monitoring of cutting tips in the HS-F 1000 milling machine by vibration and torque values. Based on the sensor data, the degree of wear of the cutting tips can be tracked and the end point of the service life can be detected with high sensitivity. The limit values for the different milling heads and cutting tips can be easily configured and changed. The dashboard displays the vibration and torque values of the current milling process as well as the progress of the current milling cycle and past milling cycles. An overview dashboard outlines the status of all milling heads in the system. If the defined limit values are exceeded, PM Analytics sends an alarm to the user or informs the SCADA system (PrepMaster Core or Entry) via an interface to automatically replace the milling head.
