Absolute Machine Tools partner PCI SCEMM (a Tongtai company) recently introduced the e-SPINDLE at EMO 2019, a new electro-spindle that integrates sensors and actuators to monitor cutting processes and adjust parameters to optimize tool life and workpiece quality.

At the show, September 16-21, in Hannover, Germany, PCI presented three e-SPINDLE applications that showcased smart machining technology. One toolholder demonstration highlighted real-time monitoring of cutting process variables including force, vibration, and coolant pressure. An adaptive drilling application illustrated the benefits of ongoing vibration control. And a honing toolholder operation featured integrated measurement of workpiece diameter to permit continual control of abrasive honing tooling.

PCI developed e-SPINDLE technology in France in collaboration with the Technical Centre for Mechanical Industry (Cetim) and the Aix-en-Provence campus of the French Arts et M├ętiers engineering and research graduate school.
