Mikron miTool
The next level of tool monitoring

Mikron miTool is an advanced tool monitoring system for high-precision part production on Mikron high-performance machining systems or any other machining system.

With Mikron miTool, you can monitor your tools with ease and efficiency, resulting in increased overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and a quick return on investment. In fact, by monitoring just one cutting tool, you can save approximately 37,000 Swiss francs per year.

As an integral part of our predictive services (and of the tool Mikron miS4.0), it anticipates and helps prevent machine downtime, tool damage and material scrap.

Functions such as automated machine learning, predictive analytics and extensive data monitoring make the system an extremely effective forecasting tool.

Ideally suited for optimizing machining operations and increasing overall productivity.

  • Production without interruption: Modifications, such as settings and regulations, can be made without machine downtime.
  • User-friendly interface: Intuitive, icon-driven graphical interface for easy operation and monitoring.
  • Statistical overview: The dashboard provides a statistical overview for each tool and optimizes the entire production process.
  • Programmable automatic actions: Each channel can be programmed for automatic actions such as data storage, notification and preventive machine stop.
  • Competitive pricing and fast ROI: Attractive pricing and fast return on investment.

Benefits

Reduction of tool costs

  • Longer replacement intervals for cutting tools
  • Damaged and expensive cutting tools can be replaced before any serious damage occurs.

Higher machine efficiency & increased overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)

  • Unattended production e.g. during breaks, night or ghost shifts safely possible
  • Ability to safely use higher feed rates
  • Mikron miTool monitoring system protects the entire machine from damage in case of tool breakage and avoids unexpected machine downtime and breakage
  • Intelligent algorithm for defined and optimal change intervals for multiple machine tools leads to higher machine efficiency

Less scrap production

  • Monitor for broken, worn, and missing tools 
  • Surface finish and tolerances can be improved by detecting tool wear.
