Dynamic Tool Load Control

Tool run-out error compensation

Differences in insert blade height cause blade run-out

Overview

The Dynamic Tool Load Control effectively suppresses chipping when using insert-tipped tools, achieving stable machining for difficult-to-cut materials. It compensates tool run-out by feed variation. The run-out, typical for insert-tipped tooling, is measured and a constant load for every insert is ensured.

Equalisation of cutting force by adjusting feed rate according to run-out

Benefits

  • Significant extension of tool life up to five times by equalizing the cutting force on each insert
  • Reduced tool costs due to longer tool life and elimination of need for expensive solid tools
  • Stable machining of difficult-to-machine materials and reduction of machining costs
  • Less tool change and stop time
