Hard-wired touch probes for turning and grinding machines for automatic inspection of workpiece contours for machining errors. Exact measurement of workpiece position using digital measurement, extreme reduction in measuring time using cyberspeed, analogue scanning process.
TC76-DIGILOG touch probe – One system, two technologies, thousands of measuring values
- Detection of machining errors caused by analogue scan process in the machining centre
- Comparative measurement between master part and workpiece
- No production of NOK-parts due to downstream, external measurements
- Immediate rework in the original setting is possible
- Massive reduction of the measuring time when evaluating surfaces
BLUM workpiece touch probe
Touch probes by BLUM can be used for the most varied measurement and monitoring tasks in CNC machining centres.
Fast determination of current workpiece position (workpiece zero point) prior to machining or after resetting using digital (switching) measurement.
Digital (switching) measurement of distances, single points, angles, inside and outside diameters, inside and outside widths on a manufactured workpiece.
Analogue scan of workpiece contours in machine tools with a resolution of 1000 measuring values per second. Deviations from the target contour are detected in the machining clamping process.
The measuring system’s modular design allows for customer-specific adaptation to special measurement tasks. BLUM offers a comprehensive range of accessories such as extensions and elbows for this purpose.
Inspection of the manufactured workpieces for machining errors and adherence to manufacturing tolerance by means of control measurements prior to clamping.
Determination of parameters for adaptive machining and process control between and after the machining steps.
Reliable and fast measurements in the coolant thanks to modern measuring mechanism with increased measuring force.
Perfectly suitable for mass production under the harshest conditions.
Tool wear is compensated for by taking measurements on the workpiece and comparing these with the nominal dimension.
Compensation of the temperature-dependent thermal behaviour of machining centres.
We are fortunate, that we have obtained such an efficient solution through the combination of the BLUM-touch probe and Citizen machine.
