Adaptive Control for Metal Cutting

Objective

The project ADACOM will address main industrial sectors. automotive (DC, LOLA, CRF), electronics (BOSCH) and printing machine sector (HDM). Next to those OEM’s, OEM’s supplier and especially sensor manufacturer suppliers (Kistler) will participate in this project in order to reach the following goals: Core development will be an Adaptive Machining Systems for metal cutting operations (milling, turning, gun-drilling, grinding), which consists of a sensor and actuator systems for online manufacturing control related to the part quality. The major aim is to achieve an Online Quality Control systems within the mass production of the above mentioned industrial sectors. In ADACOM this aim will be achieved by separating the single components of such an adaptive machining system into a modularised monitoring system. This modularisation will first of all give the possibility to adapt the different modules in this way that a flexible use of the adaptive system for different machining operations is possible. Next goal of the development within this project will be the realisation of one central system for different processes, which incorporates the flexibility towards changing production situations, different machine tools and different work piece materials. This flexibility of the ADACOM-System will be reached by developing a standardisation of the Adaptive System components. Issues like standardised interfaces, which guarantee “Plug and Produce”-production, will be achieved by standard data formats throughout the whole production sequence. This implies a connection of manufacture to design and should give the possibility use the same data in the design, production and quality assurance of a mass product.
