With the iTENDO², it has been possible to combine the excellent features of TENDO hydraulic expansion technology with the possibilities of digital process monitoring in one toolholder. If one looks into the process starting from the place of metal cutting, the iTENDO² intelligent toolholder is the first non-wear part, "closest-to-the-part," and therefore it is ideal for signal acquisition.
Digitalization is considered to be the greatest challenge in the manufacturing industry. However, it also offers chances for the companies in creating processes more precise, reliable, and faster. The precondition for this, is maximum process stability achieved by intelligent solutions and components that can recognize unforeseeable instabilities, and intervene in real time. The resulting effects are a minimization of rejects, a noticeable reduction of production times, as well as an important increase in quality and efficiency – even in the case of small batch sizes.
With the new iTENDO², SCHUNK is setting yet another milestone when it comes to digitalization in the metal cutting industry. Due to the real-time capable data communication, SCHUNK offers for the first time a very easily applicable form of process optimization with a toolholder.
