Zoller Precise, automated measurement of cutting tools
Germany – “Titan”, the measuring machine from Germany-based Zoller, is said to allow fully automated measurements of all precision tools including cutting edge preparation using one system.
According to Zoller, the operation of this flexible machine is easy and quick to learn, even for highly complex tasks.
The five to seven CNC-driven axes of the machine measure every type of metal cutting tool with precision, ranging from measuring the outer contours through to extensive documentation. The company adds that the vibration-reduced base is designed to fit further axes and sensors so that, for example, cutting edge preparations can be measured repeatedly, without the need of an operator. The ergonomic operation of the measuring machine is said to be cost-efficient, while offering micro-precise measurements.
