REDUCE YOUR MACHINING COSTS

We bring a revolutionary power monitoring technology to your shop floor and allow you to control what was previously impossible to measure.

Monitor the condition of ALL tools used in your manufacturing process to :

  • Improve machine up-time
  • Reduce cycle time
  • Improve tool life
  • Reduce scrap production
  • Protect your machine, tools, and parts
  • Ensure broken tool detection

WattPilote tool breakage detection system

Easy Integration

WattPilote is the generic name of the power tool monitoring system product line developed by the company Digital Way. WattPilotes are used to detect tool breakage and measure tool wear to avoid scrap production on all types of metal-removal machines.

User Friendly HMI

Simple, stable and powerful HMI allows fast set up of the system and allows data collection .

Keep control of your process

WattPilote combines measurement and processing in a single box. Its installation is very simple as all wiring is done in the electrical cabinet. Thanks to a unique power sensing technology and proprietary algorithms, WattPilote is able to monitor very small tools even when used on large spindles. A PC or a numeric control connected to WattPilote provides an operator display and allows graphical analysis of machining curves, faults, and tool wear.

 

 

MCM - Machine Condition Monitoring

SafePilote is a 3-axis accelerometer sensor and processor specially designed and built in Digital Way’s lab to provide you with the most effective means for protecting your machines against damage resulting from a crash or a collision.

Excessive vibrations during machining are one of the main sources for degrading the quality of your production. This system will help you keep your machine working in good condition. Its very high sensitivity will also give you the ability to detect out-of-balance problems with your high speed tooling. This system will act as a true “black box” that will allow you to track all unexpected events occurring during the use of the machine. Each alarm will be stored in the system’s memory with the corresponding shock and vibration curve.
