Blum LaserControl NT provides powerful, fast and highly accurate tool edge measurement, tool setting, wear adjustment and tool breakage detection on
any CNC machine. Its unique integrated processor provides for high speed measurement of each individual tip of multi-tip cutters rotating at full RPM. The focused laser beam also allows complete scanning of a profiled tip edge, able to detect even small imperfections or localised wear in seconds.
The system provides automated on-machine tool length measurement and setting able to obtain significantly greater precision than is possible with off-line tool setting. Incorrectly set tools or pocket errors are detected by the machine before touching the job.
Tools may be checked for breakage by passing them through the Laser Beam without pausing immediately after taking a cut to safeguard following tools.
In addition, the accuracy of the laser beam allows the machine to be precisely adjusted for thermal growth at any time or at regular intervals to greatly improve the stability of the machining process, especially in non temperature controlled factory environments.
Measurement cycles unique to the Blum system eliminate false triggering from coolant and cutting chips.
With over 50,000 units in operation around the world, Blum's Laser Tool Measurement and Laser Tool Setting technology has proven to be robust and reliable in the harshest machine tool environment. A large range of system configurations are available for small or large tools and to suit different machine layouts.
