What we did together?
Tool Wear Offsetter-Twin Spindle
As part of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) we created a solution just to address the situation where the Industrial Robot(s) and CNC Machines are in the Robotic Cages. The CNC Machine Operators needed to change Tool Wear Offsets on the CNC machines for their manufacturing operation. Following the OSHA guidelines for the safety, we offered them a state-of-the-art solution called remote Tool Wear application which allowed their CNC Machine Operators to change tool wear offsets for their Twin Spindle and Twin Turret CNC machines. Additionally, we built a custom tool life management application interfacing the variables and I/Os available on the various devices.
