The in-process layer of the Productive Process Pyramid™ features controls that are embedded within the metal cutting process. These active controls automatically respond to material conditions, inherent process variations and unplanned events to minimise process non-conformance.
Keep control as cutting proceeds
The in-process control layer of the Pyramid tackles sources of variation that are inherent to machining, such as tool wear and temperature variation, providing intelligent feedback to the process and decision-making as machining progresses.
These are active controls that are applied during metal cutting.
In-process gauging allows …
Broken tool detection recognises ...
Active process control enables parts to be made ‘right first time', so capacity needn't be set aside for rework and re-makes.
Automated in-process measurement means your machines will no longer be waiting for operators to re-start them.
In-cycle gauging gives your machine tools the intelligence they need to make decisions for themselves, enabling extended periods of ‘lights out' machining, boosting your productivity.
Renishaw's workpiece inspection probes, TRS2 tool recognition system and Productivity+™ software adapt metal cutting operations to the actual material and environmental conditions with automated feedback.
