Co-operation German firm outfits French-built machine tools with measuring devices
Germany’s Blum-Novotest said laser tool setting technology sparked its initial meeting with France’s Huron, but now the machine tool builder offers the company’s mechanical measuring systems on its centres.
Blum said that despite the price war raging in the machine tool market, and although Huron is “100% convinced” of the advantages of laser measuring systems, the company provides its customers with mechanical tool setting systems from the German firm.
Huron Sales Manager Dominique Lutz said, “Thanks to these cost-efficient probes, we can now offer measuring systems in all machining centres and all areas of application.”
Three different Blum measuring solutions are available: the non-contact laser tool setting systems, the TC Series probes for workpiece measurement during and after machining, and the mechanical tool setting systems.
