Tool monitoring by using a cutting force dynamometer means less scrap

Ensuring workpiece quality is the top priority in many sectors of industry. When the materials involved are difficult to machine, tool lifetimes can vary greatly – so continuous tool monitoring based on cutting force dynamometers is essential.

Our piezoelectric sensors record highly dynamic processes with optimum signal quality. Tool monitoring during cutting processes delivers valuable insights into the actual process, providing the basis for reliable, productive and reproducible manufacturing processes.

Typical tool monitoring applications for measuring cutting forces with a dynamometer

  • Measurement of forces, acceleration and acoustic emissions in cutting processes

Process monitoring ensures zero-defect production 

  • Lower quality costs because deviations are detected at an early stage
  • Guaranteed process stability
  • Improved process efficiency thanks to optimized process parameters
  • Monitored production with full and partial automation in shift operation
