CTM

ALIGNED TOOL, PROCESS AND MACHINE CONDITION MONITORING

CTM safeguards and optimizes complex production processes in metal-cutting machine tools thanks to aligned in-process monitoring. It delivers the right functions for almost every production scenario. The flexible interface concept enables problem-free integration within many environments - from entry solutions with no fieldbus connections, all the way to branched EthernetTM architectures. Evaluation and control is carried out with process-dependent strategies. It can be extremely finely adjusted to optimally harness the potential of the equipment. All relevant process parameters are defined, and the necessary limits are laid down and taught, so that they match the application precisely.
The process monitoring works either with fixed or dynamic alarm limits.

Monitoring strategies:

Standard:

The breakage limits are defined and parameterized. Monitoring works reliably from the very first cut.

Self-Adjusting System (SAS):

The self-adjusting segmentation and adaptation responds automatically to process fluctuations. This considerably simplifies operation.

dx/dt:

For applications where no comparison between actual and set values is possible - such as with raw parts with large material deviations or with longer processing times.

CTM System consists of several measuring transducers to convert signals of the external sensors to process monitoring it self: Force transduces CFM4; Torque non-contact transducers DDU, True power transducer MU, AE sensor transducer KU; Vibration and accelerometer transducers VG, Converter amplifier BA.
