AMRC opens door to increased machine productivity for SME

Analysing acceleration sensorial data from machining operations to explore techniques for outlier detection to provide information on machine collisions, as well as looking at the statistical examination of once-per-revolution samples in milling and turning machines to help reveal the stability state of the cutting process.

Machine Tool Technologies Ltd (MTT) based in Chorley was formed in 2001 and provides machine tool services including maintenance, repair and retrofitting legacy machines. MTT is committed to research especially in sensors, signal processing and analysing machine sensorial data. Engineers from the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) North West supported MTT’s research through its RADAR programme, designed specifically to help small-to-medium sized enterprises (SME) and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
