Innovative software for metal cutting

Comara: Machine data acquisition – systems and software

Acquiring Comara constituted the next logical step in Walter's development from product partner to process partner – and now to digital process partner too. Our objective is to understand and interpret processes in a holistic way and to develop digital solutions from this that enable Walter's machining customers to boost their productivity and efficiency across the entire process chain.

Comara has been synonymous with innovative software in machining production since 2004 and specialises in collecting, evaluating and using real-time data to connect machines.

Facts and figures
  • Founded in 2004 in St. Georgen, Germany
  • Extensive experience in machine connection
  • Visualisation, analysis and optimisation of process data
  • Comara's products are installed in approx. 11,500 machines worldwide


Comara appCom – the intuitive production assistance system for your machinery

Comara appCom* collects and visualises comprehensive machine and production data, then interprets and analyses it. Comara appCom can be used for a wide range of control systems regardless of the machine manufacturer – for example Siemens, Fanuc, Heidenhain or OPC-UA.

The benefits for you at a glance
  • Transformation of downtimes into value-adding time
  • Continuous recording of each component's operating time
  • Multiple machine operation and unmanned shifts
  • Live in the process: Opportunity to react to anomalies immediately
  • No longer any need for manual notifications and time-consuming, complex analysis
  • Live analysis (not just retrospectively at the end of the month)
  • Automatic monitoring of a wide range of values with immediate notification

Comara iCut – optimise machining processes in real time

Comara iCut measures the spindle output up to 500 times per second – and automatically adjusts the feed to the current cutting conditions. As quickly as possible, as slowly as necessary. In every situation. With a unique reaction time. Whether this concerns fluctuations in the material removal, varying milling cutter rotations, differing engagement widths, hardening or tool wear.

The benefits for you at a glance
  • ROI in less than 6 months
  • Reduction in production time (10% on average)
  • Protects spindle and tool against overload
  • Increased process reliability (unmanned production, multiple machine operation)
  • More even tool deflection for roughing
  • No longer any need for manual notifications and time-consuming, complex analysis
