  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Tasks & Solution
A camera, positioned inside the machine can be very useful when it comes to attaining an unrestricted view or an extended view of the machine table. This allows the machining of a workpiece to be precisely analyzed and, for instance, undesirable traversing motion of the tool as a result of programming errors can be corrected.

Recording visual information using a camera and transferring the information to a SINUMERIK 828D control and the subsequent processing will be described in the following. A special camera developed for CNC machines must be directly mounted over the machining table of a machine tool.
