Another highlight of intelligent production technology is demonstrated by the experts in adaptronics of Fraunhofer IWU: “PermaVib”, a vibrational system for drilling and milling tools. By using ultrasound, these tools can be excited to vibrate in such a way that the machining of metals is considerably facilitated. This system allows for a reduction of tool wear by up to 50 percent. Additionally, up to 40 percent less force is required for machining when applying “Perma Vib”. The specific benefit lies in the fact that existing machine tools can be retrofitted with this system without any large expenditure, since it can be integrated into any machining center as a module.
