IN-PROCESS-MONITORING

– MONITORING IN REAL TIME

The ARTIS tool and monitoring systems protect machines and workpieces from damage. They also ensure that tools are used optimally, and provide a platform for process optimization. The beneficial consequences are increases in productivity, and a reduction in the overall lifetime costs of a machine tool. At the same time, tool and process monitoring plays an important part in quality assurance, and satisfies the requirements stipulated for workpiece control and documentation.

Monitoring the process directly brings many advantages:

  • Immediate error detection (e.g. broken, missing or worn tools) and the immediate necessary reaction (e.g. machine stop)
  • Reduced costs and lower number of rejects thanks to wear-dependent tool changing
  • Optimized processing speed thanks to continuous adaptation to the real-time process parameters (e.g. via adaptive control)
  • Comprehensive documentation and statistics

INTEGRATION IN THE MACHINE TOOL CONTROL

ARTIS works with strong partners on the optimization and development of new monitoring solutions: ARTIS works with university institutes, renowned manufacturers of machine tools, tools and components, as well as software developers.

Co-operation with the major control manufacturers is particularly important for the development and application of control-integrated process monitoring systems.
This is why the integration of process monitoring functions within controls is remarkably uncomplicated when using ARTIS systems.

ARTIS has been a SIEMENS Solution Partner since 2006.

 

PROCESS MONITORING – THE PRINCIPLE

PROCESS MONITORING – THE PRINCIPLE

Information from the machining process is transferred digitally to the control: and alternatively or additionally in an analog process via sensors on the associated measurement transducers. All of the data flows into the evaluation unit where it is processed for further processing. Direct intervention in the processing operation can take place depending on the configuration. Visualization takes place either on the operating panel of the control or on a separate monitor.
