Metal working

Machine tools are often used as diligent helpers in almost all manufacturing companies in this world.

In practice, machine tools for the machining of metal are divided into the categories turning, milling, drilling, grinding, sawing.
These processes are divided into the ‘wet’- i.e. flooded with coolant, MQL (minimum quantity lubrication) and ‘dry’ working.
ifm sensors can be used in all applications. The topics "energy efficiency" and "quality assurance" are currently the focus of a lot of attention. Here again, ifm offers application-specific sensors at a favourable price/performance ratio.
