Description

m&h LTS35.60 – the premium Laser Tool Setter

Premium laser tool setter for dynamic tool measurement in the high-end sector. The non-contact precision measurement makes possible dynamic length and diameter checking on almost every tool from Ø 0.008 mm.

Design, concept and construction as well the quality of the optics used ensure straightforward alignment, calibration, reliable setup and operation of the laser unit. The stainless steel housing as well as the largely maintenance-free laser optics and the straightforward handling make this system ideally suited to workshop use.

Application:

  • Determination of tool length.
  • Measurement of tool radius.
  • Detection of broken tools.
Design features
Specifications

High-end laser optics

  • Strongly exposed focus point.
  • Smallest tool diameter 8 µm.
  • Offers large alignment tolerance.
  • Precise tool measurement.

TCS – true cutting scan for the highest precision

Features:

  • Scans the really longest cutting circle.
  • Searches the longest cutting circle diameter.
  • Uses this to the exact length measurement.
  • Correct tool length measurement.

Benefits:

  • Determines the real tool length.
  • High precision length measurement.
  • High-end functionality – exclusively from m&h.

Precision and process reliability

  • Precision measurements regardless of geometry and tool dimensions.
  • Uncertainty in measurement due to varying thermal expansion of materials is ruled out.
  • Precision measurements for tools larger than 0.008 mm (0.0003'').
  • Supersonic air jets significantly reduce measurement errors from dirt on the tool.
  • Software algorithms to eliminate the effects of coolant drops.
  • No interference from ambient light.

Applications and measuring routines

  • Dynamic, precision measurement of length and diameter for almost any tool from Ø >0.008 mm (0.0003").
  • Measurement of the cutting edge geometry at nominal speed.
  • Length compensation of dynamic changes in tool position.
  • Correction of tool length in case of thermal change and thermal drift of the spindle or machine axes.
  • Diameter compensation for dynamic changes in the rotational diameter of a tool.
  • Detection and compensation of tool wear.
  • Monitoring of run-out, tool change and clamping errors.
  • Tool breakage detection.

Tool cleaning using laval nozzle

  • Laval nozzle with supersonic pressure.
  • Tool cleaning in measuring position.
  • Tool cleaning with nominal rotation speed for optimum cleaning results.
  • Minimal cleaning distance.
  • Sealing cap prevents penetration of foreign objects and liquid.

Sturdy design

  • Compact, stainless steel housing.
  • Laser optics protected using motor-operated shutter unit.
  • Air curtain prevents dirt particles entering the device.
  • Measurement system sealed according to IP68 standard.

Operation suitable for the workshop

  • Simple and reliable calibration and set-up of the laser unit.
  • Maintenance of the laser optics without tools, removable shutter unit.
  • Easy to regulate, accessible air curtain.
  • Measurement of very short tools possible.
