The KOMET GROUP, which is well known for its precision machining tools for solid, rough and fine boring, reaming and threading, is setting course for a digital future at EMO Hannover 2017. Products, projects and digitization - these are to be the mainstays of the group over the next ten years, according to KOMET's Managing Director, Christof Bönsch. "The ToolScope assistance system makes us the first company in the tool industry to take a clear stance in favor of digitization in the world of machining", explains Bönsch. "In a short time, we have also become an important partner for our customers in this field."
The ToolScope assistance system is the core element of all digital KOMET products and as such will be continuously developed. Originally conceived as a process monitoring system, it has since become a largely open platform on which various different apps can be run. At EMO Hannover 2017, KOMET is celebrating the premiere of the new ToolScope firmware V11, which offers various possibilities, including that of using extended cloud functions. KOMET is also presenting a new software program that can implement ToolScope functions without the need to install any hardware, i.e. it is purely server-based. All the same, the digital revolution is not totally eclipsing KOMET's classic virtues. Indeed, the company is showcasing a dazzling array of innovations for standard solutions, component-based solutions and special tools.
