Tool Monitoring Adaptive Control (TMAC) measures tool wear in real-time and uses Adaptive Control to automatically optimize feed rates through variations in material cutting; to maximize tool life and reduce cycle time.
Manufacturers today are challenged with reduced availability of skilled workers, increased process complexity, and unrelenting global competition. Optimizing productivity while maintaining the highest quality is the ultimate goal. With the additional challenges of variations in material, depth of cut, and cutting conditions, smart manufacturing technology is essential for modern day manufacturing.
TMAC maximizes tool life by monitoring true power, not guessing with cycle count or time in cut.
Adaptive Control regulates feed-rates to maintain a constant spindle motor power for optimum cutting and reduced cycle time. TMAC automatically increases the feed-rate with low power conditions, and decreases the feed-rate with higher power cuts and as tools wear.
