Increasing demands are being made on the machine tool industry as regards digitalization, higher reliability and failure prevention, as the exhibitors from Buffalo Machinery maintain. The company has set itself the goal of manufacturing intelligent machines with high quality and cutting-edge technology that fully meet the requirements of Industry 4.0. Under the Axile brand, machine tools are being developed for the premium market and new procedures of FEM (Finite Element Method) calculation, static and dynamic model calculation and modern market research methods are being used. In cooperation with Schaeffler, work is being carried out on maintenance facilities, Smart Machining Technologies (SMT), and availability technologies. The five-axis machining center Axile G8, which will be presented at EMO Hannover 2017, has been designed to meet the high-end requirements of the mold making, aerospace, automotive and medical sectors. It deploys sensors to capture important information from the core components. In the process, the data are divided into the two groups of real-time data acquisition for monitoring purposes and the running data that is stored for long-term evaluation. The latter are then used for a life-cycle calculation or preventive maintenance management.
