APS

Advanced Process System, a module of smart machine, is a monitoring system which opens up new possibilities for the user to observe and control the milling process. With the help of this system, vibrations that occur during a milling process can be made visible as a "G-load”. In this way, it is possible to intervene selectively in the process and optimise it.

The unique vibration monitoring system

Advanced Process System, a module of smart machine, is a monitoring system which opens up new possibilities for the user to observe and control the milling process. With the help of this system, vibrations that occur during a milling process can be made visible as a "G-load”. In this way, it is possible to intervene selectively in the process and optimise it.

The functional principle

Vibrations can occur during the milling process as a result of an interrupted cut and various chip crosssections, or simply as a result of poorly balanced tools. During the milling process, vibrations are displayed and recorded from the limit value onwards by means of an acceleration sensor integrated into the spindle.

APS Extended

Extended functions have been integrated into this module that make it possible to find what is causing the vibrations. Limit values can be set on the G-load. The two different types of limit values are called "Warning" and "Stop". When a "Warning" is reached, a message is displayed. The "Stop" limit value indicates a critical situation in the machining process and interrupt operation immediatly. In both cases, the resulting message can be forwarded to the operator by means of RNS, another smart machine module. This offers the operator the opportunity to react adequately to the given situation.
