Automatic Cutting Edge Measurement
Tool measurement systems
For automatic tool measurement. Cutting edges of inserts, drills, millers and other round tools are measured regardless of type, size, material or surface finish. Users measure radii >2μm as well as rake, wedge and clearance angle of tools. Different types, including both waterfall and trumpet, are precisely measured. Traceable and repeatable results are delivered in high vertical resolution even at vibrations, variations in temperature and ambient light. In addition to chipping measurement, the high vertical resolution also enables traceable roughness measurement on the rake face.
For optical, automatic tool measurement in high resolution. It is a fully automated cutting edge measurement system for quality assurance of drills, millers and other round tools to be applied in production. Specifically, the EdgeMasterX enables 3D measurement of multiple cutting edges. When utilized in combination with a motorized rotation unit, users benefit from the measurement of multiple tool edges, even chamfered edges, in one single measurement run. Deviations from a CAD file or reference geometry are indicated through a traffic light system. Measurements are initiated by a single button solution allowing for measurements to be performed without any further user interaction.
Used for automated quality assurance. The hob measuring device is particularly applied in e.g. regrinding centers. A working distance of 33mm allows effortless measurement of cutting edges even in areas that are hard to access. Users measure, amongst other features, chipping and edge defects, chamfer as well as edge roundness at the tooth flank, tooth root and tooth tip.
