From smart toolholders to simple process monitoring and integration into the machine control system: With the iTENDO2, SCHUNK wants to set standards in terms of digitalization in the machining industry.27 Sep 2023
The machining industry is currently facing difficult challenges. High productivity with low production costs and high factory quality are essential prerequisites for sustainability, profitability and competitiveness. In addition, digitization is considered the biggest challenge in the manufacturing industry. However, it also offers companies the opportunity to make processes more precise, reliable and faster. With intelligent solutions and components, SCHUNK - one of the world's leading companies when it comes to equipping modern manufacturing plants and robot systems - now wants to contribute even more to maximum process stability and thus lay the foundation for a digital future in industry.
Thus, with the iTENDO2, it has now been possible to combine the outstanding properties of TENDO hydraulic expansion technology with the possibilities of digital process monitoring in a toolholder. Looking at the process from the point of cutting, the iTENDO2 intelligent toolholder is the first non-wear part that is "closest-to-the-part" and thus predestined for signal acquisition.
At the same time, getting started with transparent data acquisition with the iTENDO2 is actually said to be amazingly simple: Simply connect the tool holder to the pad with a click and the iTENDO2 can capture irregularities and help you work even more efficiently in various machining processes. On the tablet, the process can be tracked in real time, recorded and started by defining the limit values in the parameters for automatic recording.
