Centro-P feat. spike®_assist - The intelligent adapter

What is Centro-P feat. spike®_assist?

Centro-P feat. spike®_assist is a precision collet chuck, which has been transformed into an intelligent adapter using state-of-the-art sensor technology. Up to now, machine operators have only been able to interpret the cutting forces that are produced in the machining process based on their experience, noises or instinct. Thanks to our intelligent tool holder, these forces can now be measured directly at the adapter and visualised via a panel and spike®_app.

Tool breakage and unnecessary tool wear are history thanks to Centro-P

The Centro-P feat. Spike®_assist adapter is a real game changer, especially for small and medium batch sizes:

  • Visualisation of the relative utilisation of the tool in percent
  • Wear detection of each individual cutting edge during milling
  • Identification of drill wandering
  • Vibration detection
  • Tool breakage detection
  • Alarm signals when set limit values are exceeded
  • Push notification via spike®_app
  • Adjustable alarm limit values

Which machining processes is the Centro-P feat. spike®_assist adapter suitable for?

The Centro-P feat. spike®_assist adapter is suitable for milling, drilling, reaming and threading. However, the intelligent precision collet chuck is most commonly used for milling and bore machining.
