DDU SENSOR SYSTEMS
CONTACTLESS MEASURING OF TORQUE AND FORCE
The DDU system enables highly sensitive measuring of torque and feed force on rotating and rigid tools in metal cutting processes. Integrated into tool holder, DDU provides exact value of torque and feed force, especially suitable for tapping tools or gun-drills. In these, more than other tools, the friction surfaces are very large or very deep and, hence, there is the danger of sudden breakage. The increase or lack of torque is quickly detected and sent to machine for stopping of the process. DDU features wireless inductive signal transmission of measuring data and energy supply. It is suitable for single or multi spindle applications on new or existing machinery.
Typical applications are: tapping processes, deep drill, and drilling operations.
DDU is used with ARTIS CTM, Genior Modular or as stand-alone solution.
