Entry into the digital world! Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory

The digital transformation is now becoming the focus of many different production operations. Hermle is there to provide support while you chart your individual course towards Industry 4.0 and the smart factory. We offer a wide range of software solutions for improving your efficiency, precision and productivity. Our digital components thus represent links in the chain of smarter production. We can work together in order to find out what your operation needs.

With Digital Production, Digital Operation and Digital Service components, we can put together a comprehensive package that will put your Hermle machining centres on a firm footing for future tasks: intelligent order management and transparent machining processes, smart machine tuning, paperless manufacturing and sophisticated technology cycles, as well as options for remote or preventive maintenance. Our digital components improve productivity, ease of operation and efficiency.

ACC - Active Chatter Control

Digital Operation

 

During power cutting, the strong process forces acting through the milling tool generate vibrations in the machine structure. If certain limits are exceeded, this can lead to tool damage, workpiece damage and/or machine damage. ACC computes a compensation signal from the number of cutters and the rotational speed of the spindle, resulting in reduced vibrations. This means that higher rates of feed, input and tool usage times are possible, making for more productivity and lower costs.

AFC - Adaptive Feed Control

Digital Operation

 

Depending on the maximum amount of input to be expected, you can define maximum process parameters and limits using AFC. If the actual input is lower on account of varying cutting depths in the component, AFC increases and permanently monitors the tool-specific process limits on the basis of the spindle performance and the feed rate. In this way, the software increases process reliability and productivity.

AVD - Active Vibration Damping

Digital Operation

 

Machine tools are elastic systems. Vibrations caused by abrupt acceleration lead to varying degrees of precision at the tool centre point. These axis vibrations are compensated by the continuously active AVD software, resulting in improved surface quality, precision, feed rates and productivity.

CTC - Cross Talk Compensation

Digital Operation

 

The effects of inertia and structural flexibility mean that acceleration of the axes can lead to displacement of the tool centre point. Which in turn produces inaccuracies in machining. The constantly running CTC feature compensates for these acceleration-dependent displacements at all times. This improves contour accuracy, precision, feed rates and productivity.

LAC - Load Adaptive Control

Digital Operation 

 

As standard, the drive parameters for machine tools are set to cope with the maximum expected workpiece weight. LAC adapts the settings for the rotary axis according to the workpiece. This means you benefit from maximum dynamic capability for each workpiece. And Hermle machining centres with swivelling rotary tables achieve better precision, surface quality and acceleration.
