BLUM standard measuring cycles
The measuring cycles for BLUM laser measuring systems can be used to measure and monitor over 90 % of all conventional cutting tools. The measuring cycles are available for many conventional controls. Your local BLUM-representative will gladly inform you about the range of features for your control.
Non-contact breakage detection of centric tools such as drills, mills, engraving tools, taps and reamers.
Non-contact tool setting in length and radius at nominal speed including compensation of dynamic spindle drift at high rotational speeds.
Monitoring of tools regarding cutting edge breakage and missing tool inserts.
Compensation of tool wear using measurements between the machining steps. The wear value is stored as an additive correction value in the tool offset memory.
Compensation of the temperature-dependant thermal behaviour of machining centres.
Ideally suited to mass production under the harshest conditions thanks to its rugged design and protection class IP68.
