Non-contact tool measurement enables automatic checks for tool wear or breakage, therefore maintaining accurate tooling processes as well as production safety. This system gathers precise tool data which is automatically analyzed to identify such damages to components.
Renishaw - NC4+ - Blue - System - Shorter
Renishaw explains that the NC4+ Blue system has a shorter wavelength, resulting in improved diffraction effects and optimized laser beam geometry when compared to red laser sources found in conventional non-contact tool setters. This technology allows for the measurement of very small tools.
Furthermore, its non-contact tool setting software packages include a new dual measurement mode with auto optimization technology which ensures fast and reliable...
