CoroPlus® Process Control

Machining processes do not always work according to plan. Hard-to-control factors in manufacturing and human error can cause damage to your component, machine tool spindle or cutting tools. Small errors lead to larger problems such as significant machine downtime and delayed output and deliveries.

The application of process monitoring in your workshop will provide increased control of machining processes. The result will be more sustainable business operations that produces less waste, is more efficient and ultimately is more profitable.

The process monitoring system CoroPlus® Process Control will monitor your machining in real-time and act according to programmed protocols if specific issues occur, for example by stopping the machine or replacing a worn cutting tool.

Collision detection

Collision detection 

 

Collision detection will act to minimize or avoid damage to the machine tool and to the workpiece in case of a collision. CoroPlus® Process Control monitors the machining force or vibration and instantly stops the machining in case of an overload.

Key benefits

  • Process security
  • Machine tool security


{{ asset.Title }}

{{ asset.Description }}

For collision detection on turning machines, a force sensor is integrated between the spindle and the interface of the revolver, or between the tool holder and slide.

The machining force strikes out in the event of a collision or process degeneration. If the signal exceeds the adjustable monitoring overload limit, the system reacts, and the direct digital output enables the fastest machine-stop possible.

For collision detection on machining centers, it is possible to use a vibration sensor on the spindle.

Tool breakage detection

Tool breakage detection 

 

Tool breakage detection is achieved by measuring the machining force and reliably interpreting deviations in the signal as tool breakage. A tool breakage event can trigger several actions, for example stopping the machine or changing the broken tool.

Key benefits

  • Consistent component quality
  • Increased process security
  • Reduced downtime
  • Protected investment
  • Missing tool detection


{{ asset.Title }}

{{ asset.Description }}

In difficult machining processes, for example when making the first cut in cast iron, sensors are integrated to measure the machining force in all dimensions.

Dynamic limits are continuously adapting to the measured signal and therefore tolerate slow signal changes. Adjustments of the dynamic limits take place within cycles of less than one millisecond, thus occurring several times within a single workpiece rotation.

If the signal passes through one of the dynamic limits at breakneck speed, the limits are maintained, and additional analysis is performed to decide if this was an insert breakage event.

Total breakages or cavities are reliably differentiated, allowing unexpected extreme signal peaks to be tolerated.

Tool wear detection

Tool wear detection 

 

Tool wear detection analyses the sensor input data over time to detect wear on a cutting tool. This allows various actions to be programmed, for example stopping the machine or changing a tool.

Key benefits

  • Lower total tool cost
  • Consistent component quality


{{ asset.Title }}

{{ asset.Description }}

Tool wear increases the dynamics of cutting edge vibration. The acquisition of the acceleration with a vibration sensor enables the comparison of the signal with static limits.

When the overload limit is reached, the system will either react and stop the machine after the machining has finished or automatically trigger a change of the worn tool.


Contact us for more information about tool we​ar detection



Contact detection

Contact detection 

 

Contact detection analyses the sensor signals to determine whether the tool is in contact with the workpiece. The signal is transferred to the machine, which can be programmed to perform multiple different actions, for example adjusting the feed.

Key benefits

  • Increased automation of the machining process
