Special tool measurement systems for turning machines and turning/milling centres for adaptation to customer-specific tasks. Precise tool setting and monitoring using innovative, face-geared shark360 measuring mechanism with optoelectronic switch signal generation.
TC53-20 | TC63-20 touch probes - Measure and monitor turning tools in the process
Wear-free, optoelectronic signal generation
- The trigger signal is generated via shading of a miniature light barrier
- Enables much higher measuring speeds and accuracy than with conventional probes
- Wear-free with long-term stability
Unique, patented shark360 measuring mechanism
Reliable and proven transmission technology
BLUM Tool Setting Probes
Touch probes by BLUM can be used for the most varied measurement and monitoring tasks in CNC machining centres.
Non-contact breakage detection of centric tools such as drills, mills, engraving tools, taps and reamers.
Automatic setting and wear monitoring of tools by quick and precise length measurement.
Automatic recording of tool diameter and wear through quick and precise radius measurement.
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.
The modular design of the measuring system enables customer-specific adaptation for special measuring tasks. BLUM offers a comprehensive range of accessories such as extensions and elbows for this purpose.
Reliable and fast measurements in coolant thanks to modern measuring mechanism and robust design.
Ideally suited to mass production under the harshest conditions.
