article – optimal geometry developed with spike®

By otto.zastrow | 11. January 2018

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…

In May 2017, our new spike partner in Japan, Fukuda Corp. and the pro-micron management signed a close cooperation based on partnership. spike continues to become international and is now active through Fukuda Corp. to acquire.


Video – What is the Polarplot? (english)

By otto.zastrow | 11. January 2018

spike is measuring bending moment in x- & y-direction. With this it is possible to visualze forces in 2-D view. This funktion is calles Polarplot and has already helped machining engineers to improve their processes much faster. In this video Polarplot is explained by a concrete example. Watch video here
