The saying “where there’s machining, there are chips flying” holds a certain truth. And since chips do fly, it may happen that during a tool change, one of them gets stuck between the tool holder and the spindle cone. Preventing the “flight” of chips is challenging, but by installing the right control system, we can detect such occurrences. Consequently, we can halt the machine before it contacts the workpiece, preventing defects in production. Building on our longstanding partnership with DigitalWay, our technological partner, we integrate HSM devices into machining equipment. These devices monitor the correctness of tool fastening in the spindle, based on a checking cycle and a comparison with a reference before initiating the working cycle. Feel free to contact us to evaluate the potential for installing HSM in your machining equipment.
