Machine characteristics change over time due to variations in load, temperature, machine position, wear etc. Smart machine control is a set of features that improve various machine control functions. What makes these functions „smart“ is that they automatically adapt to changing machine conditions in real-time. Shortest cycle times, highest precision and machining quality can be achieved sustainably.
For instance, Smart Adaptive Control adapts the feed rate to the actual spindle load and temperature during roughing. By this, Smart Adaptive Control helps you to utilize the power of your machine tool and to reduce cycle time.
Another example is Smart Machining Point Control. The function predicts the movement of the machining point using a model and suppresses vibration. This reduces the position error. Smart Machining Point Control therefore improves the surface quality of machined parts.
