About us

MCU GmbH is explicitly concerned with the development and distribution of hardware and software components for process monitoring systems. We operate quite successfully on the market, and continue to further develop and enhance our products based on a knowhow acquired throughout the years around the world, and based on a capable network of practical experience. By now, almost all renowned machine manufacturers have Toolinspect integrated in their systems. Among our customers in 23 countries are those in the area of application such as metal cutting, especially in the automotive industry, fittings manufacturers as well as components manufacturers in aerospace industry.

Demand for automated, uninterruptedly operating process monitoring systems in series manufacturing is continuously increasing. This can be attributed to the intensifying progress of automation and the surge in product diversity. That is the reason why process variants increase as well. However, the monitoring of processes is just one of the requirements on such systems.

Toolinspect -II digital

The Toolinspect device is used to monitor tools on metal-cutting machines. The data necessary for this task are normally transmitted to the device by a CNC control via a field bus interface. The monitoring strategy is automatically selected by the integrated software, according to the tool or machining process. The necessary parameters are determined and entered individually for one machine type by the machine tool manufacturer. No changes or adjustments are then necessary in the NC program.

The MCA analysis (machine condition analysis) enables you to record axis forces at intervals (e.g. once a week) and then compare them with values already stored. In principal, you can also use other values such as Vibration values of an SeTAC sensor. The first measurement can be set as the reference curve. This makes it easy to compare the current
machine condition with the data that was set for example when the machine was delivered.

News & Innovations

New generation – process monitoring in combination with Industry 4.0 

It was in the 1980s that the first analog tool monitorings were replaced by digital systems. The current state-of-the-art, however, has little in common with those systems, because nowadays it is no longer only about tool breakage or “tool missing”, but more about the analysis of a p...| » Further reading 

The ToolAnalyzer Software 

To begin with, this software is about having the logs analyzed in an external software. That means, you can easily start the process from a USB flash drive. The ToolAnalyzer software makes it possible with location licensing to easily evaluate the exported data of the Toolinspect tool monitoring....| » Further reading
