In addition to detecting tool breakage, missing-tool and tool-wear, this system also makes sure that you can detect and avoid those conditions. Moreover, the UT-Tm®-Basic provides the necessary transparency in processes, such as e.g. on the measured effective power or spindle vibrations. This data can be used to optimize cutting parameters. That means, you can have higher feed-rate values tested or have the tools run to the point of wear. This makes the UT-Tm® system quite an intelligent investment for having cycle times on a machine tool reduced systematically.
