The SpikeĀ® sensory tool holder developed by Pro-Micron is a wireless force sensor used for tool monitoring. During machining, it measures the force and torque generated directly on the tool holder. The recorded data is then wirelessly transmitted to a receiver for the measurement data to be easily reviewed. In addition to the measuring software, analyzer software is also available. This software features a graphic comparison of the date measured from the measurement software and a polar plot representation of the operation. Pro-Micron is based in Germany and has many years of experience in the sensor telemetry and SAW-sensors fields. They are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
