Spindle Diagnostic Software SDS

Regarding the upcoming industry 4.0 the topic of real time spindle diagnosis becomes more and more important.

STEP-TEC - a pioneer in spindle surveillance system development - offers also a various number of motor spindles with an integrated monitoring unit known as the Spindle Diagnosis Module SDM20 which is similar to an airplanes black-box.

This module allows collecting a variety of relevant process parameters along with spindle status information and is made available in digital format via an RS485 or PROFIBUS interface.

STEP-TEC offers a unique graphical software front end known as Spindle Diagnostic Software SDS. This tool provides access to all spindle data such as:

  • Number of operating hours
  • Number of tool changes and state of the clamping system
  • Temperatures (e.g. bearings, motor winding)
  • Acceleration readings (vibrations) in three planes
  • Crash events (with date and time when linked to PROFIBUS©)
  • Spindle speed- and logging of operating periods
  • Date and time of commissioning (entries made by the machine manufacturer)
  • Spindle specific data (entry done by Step-Tec)

    - Customer service and machine operators have a huge benefit for diagnostic and analyzing purposes.

    - The integrated data logger function supports the operator for application optimizing during milling process and helps to maximize spindle/ machine lifetime.
