Get going with tool wear in an Industry 4.0 context

Industry 4.0, which stands for the far-reaching digitisation of production, is what many companies are striving for today. Including companies with a metalworking activity. Digitalisation, standardisation, automation ... require first and foremost, efficient and controlled machining processes. Via a webinar series, we refresh the basic knowledge and link it to the digital evolution. The first topic to be discussed will be tool wear.

Everyone is looking at Industry 4.0 and is consequently busy digitising: connecting machines, making dashboards, integrating sensors, etc. However, we have noticed that in these processes the basis - the machining itself - is often regarded as secondary or even completely disregarded. Productivity is achieved primarily through high-performance machining processes. Sirris is now organising a series of short webinars on the basics of machining operations, to refresh these and make the link with the '4.0' or digital evolution.

What tools can tell us

In the first webinar of the series, which will take place on 16 April, we will be looking at tool wear. Even without sensors or digital aids, tools tell us a lot. So let us first brush up on this, and then turn our eyes to the digital future. At the end, we offer you a practical exercise that you can carry out immediately in order to lay a solid foundation.

Participation in the webinars is free of charge but registration is required. Interested? Read more about this webinar in our agenda!
