Pop up, Jack in a box type tool setters can be produced for any machine. Probe is retracted and covered when no in use.
The unit holds a Renishaw probe with either a round carbide stylus on milling machines or a square ceramic stylus for multi function machines which are capable of milling and turning functions.
Tool measurement is performed dynamically. This means that certain tool types may be rotating during measurement.
Rotating tools during measurement allows the measurement to consider tool run out and uneven cutting edges on the tool.
Macro programs allow length and diameters of tools to be checked. Measurement routines are called with a single line of code.
Machines equipped with plunger style measuring units can be easily retrofitted with a unit that will allow length and diameter to be measured.
Whether programming in conversational language or G code, full function of the measurement routines will be available.
OUR UNITS CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO ACCOMODATE MEASUREMENT OF SPECIAL TOOLS AT LITTLE OR NO COST.
SPECIAL MEASUREMENT ROUTINES CAN BE WRITTEN, USUALLY AT NO COST.
OUR GOAL IS TO SIMULTANEOUSLY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS AND MAKE AUTOMATION EASY.
