What is spike®?

A measuring system which detects the cutting forces and moments directly on the tool. Based on measured data, process engineers  can do offline diagnosis and process optimization or or machinist can do online monitoring.

How does spike® measure??

spike is located on the tool holder or inside the spindle. Via its battery operated spark unit data will be transmitted wirelessly, to a receiver and the machine control.

What is spike®_polar?

spike_polar doesn´t only show the forces that affect the tool, but can also determine the direction of action with the the X- and Y-coordinates. In this way the condition of each cutting edge can be precisely defined.

The Use

Identify loss of component quality due to high wear or a broken cutting edge - Change tools before it comes to a tool breakage. Let the forces that affect the tool decide about when to change the tool!
