The spike_mobile (sensory tool holder) can no longer just be used as a diagnostic tool for process optimization – it has also found its role as a monitoring device for serial production with machine connection. Watch video
The forces acting on the tool can be measured with spike. That’s why process data analysis allows you to quickly carry out decisive optimizations. spike process engineer Alexander Sperling explains how to proceed and how to obtain initial statements about his process on the basis of simple analyses.

During traditional roughing operations cutterpaths often contain variable chip loads, varying step overs, and -too often -full diameter width cuts. Adaptive Clearing utilizes a strategy of constant cuts with a repositioning move. Get the facts about the inherent benefits of adaptive clearing from Autodesk and of spike sensory tool holder from pro-micron GmbH & Co. KG…
spike and its approach of sensor based manufacturing in context of Industry 4.0 will be part of the 14th Powertrain Manufacturing Conference in Darmstadt in November. PTW organizes this event to provide valuable insights into future trends and challenges regarding the manufacturing of powertrain components.

Regularly occurring process problems and corresponding quality defects in the component have caused an automobile manufacturer to use the spike® for problem analysis in a serial process. A first recording allowed him to document the forces he encountered. The problem could be identified with the spike® without time-consuming, empirical tests. View German PDF Document
Depending on the process parameter setting, the forces per cutting edge can be displayed and analyzed in detail, e. g. cutting edge pressure detection, welding-on, cutting edge displacement., … View PDF document
An optimally selected cooling lubricant ensures optimum chip removal, cooling and reduction of cutting forces. Using the spike measurement data, simple performance comparisons of cooling lubricants can be made and quick statements about the selection of the cooling lubricant can be made.
Autodesk Pier 9 in San Francisco is working on the future of digital production. In this video you will get a detailed insight into Adaptive Clearing technology and learn why this HSC strategy is so effective and can still reduce your tool wear. The entire process was recorded using the sensory toolholder spike® and evaluated thereafter.…
A South German automotive supplier recently measured the axial and bending moment forces on the holder with the help of its sensory toolholder spike ® , thus reducing its process duration by 10.7% per bore – with verified bore hole quality by the polar plot. View German article
By means of the bending moments acting on the tool, which the spike® displays in the form of a polar plot, it can be seen at a glance that the cutting edges of the tool have a different effect. The polar plot can show when single blades are unintentionally loaded more than others. This makes…
