What we did together?
Tool Wear Offsetter-Single 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 including CNC machines that have two spindles and twin turrets. Additionally, we allowed tool management application for the twin turret machines where over 196 tools needed to be managed on each turret that only contained limited spots to hold the physical CNC tools.
