OMATIVE'S Adaptive Control & Monitoring (ACM) technology provides optimizing solutions for all metal-cutting machine operations such as: Milling, Turning, Grinding, Drilling, Boring, Gear Hobbing, Monitoring and critical Hole-Making operations for the Aerospace industry.
ACM impacts positively on productivity, machine and tool efficiency, and manufacturing costs by providing optimization solutions resulting in:
- Reduced cycle time
- Longer tool life
- Consistent quality of cut
- Energy conservation
- Machine and tool protection and breakage detection
ACM's Feed Rate Optimization technology uses sophisticated algorithms that optimize the machine's programmed feed rate – speeding up cutting when the path is obstacle‑free and slowing down when geometry, material hardness, or tool conditions demand caution. The Feed Rate Optimization process reduces cycle time with the minimum of wear and tear on the machine tool and cutting tool, and achieves maximum quality for the machined part.
The Tool Monitoring Optimization feature monitors and protects tools, spindles, parts and the machine itself. The ACM system issues tool status alerts, assuring that tools are changed only when they are worn. OMATIVE's ACM system monitors both upper and lower load limits so that it simultaneously tracks and detects conditions of tool overload, tool breakage, missing tools or parts, no‑load situations, and erroneously repeated runs of the same part. The system alerts operators to these dangerous conditions, allowing correction of the situation before damage occurs.
