Temperature Sensor Coatings for Smart Machining Tools

Objective

We are seeking FP7 funding for the design and development of a machining tool with a wear-resistant ceramic thin film temperature sensor, for in-situ, continuous wireless monitoring of the temperature during a machining operation. The main benefits are • machining process optimalisation • Optimal use of the tools within their temperature range resulting in increased lifetime of the tool • Detection of end-of-life of the tool: changing tools just in time and minimal scrap production • Optional integration in a Tool Condition Monitoring System for full automated production
