The Spinner company consistently relied on I/O-Link when designing the MIKROTURN series. A coherent wiring and shielding concept made the decision for I/O-Link easy for the medium-sized machine manufacturer. Especially in connection with the Spinner Touch surface “SPIOS” a perfect commissioning and diagnostic tool was created. All actuators/sensors can be parameterized and analyzed with the aid of the surface. In line with Industry 4.0, a complete database for signal exchange was created here. The I/O-Link valve amplifier from W.E.St. Elektronik enables the operator to optimally adjust the clamping pressure of the chuck to the clamping requirement. This is done comfortably via the user interface, but the pressure can also be “reprogrammed” variably by the NC program. The compact design of the valve amplifier and simple integration into the I/O-Link platform spoke in favor of the W.E.St. Elektronik.
