Mikron miTool: better production processes and higher profitability for rotary transfer machines

By using a tool monitoring system such as miTool by Mikron’s machining division, shops can save costs associated with  downtime for tool changes while increasing cutting performance. Best suited for rotary transfer machines, this system can improve production processes and profitability by adapting cutting tool parameters. This is results in an increase in quality and the need for fewer tool changes — and therefore less process interruption. Specialist article: Production Machining, Volume 22, Issue
