Highly accurate automatic bore gauging is available with the wireless Blum BG60 or BG61 gauges mounted directly in the machine tool-changer, and called up to check a bore just like any metal cutting tool. These in-machine bore gauges provide dependable feedback on bore diameter and geometry directly from the machining station immediately on completion of a metal cutting operation.
BG60 is able to take a diametral bore measurement in seconds with sub-micron precision, using a floating head that is
fully independent of machine accuracy and spindle position.
BG61 is a customizable gauge that may be fitted with up to 8 independent sensors to simultaneously measure bore size, position and cylindricity in multiple diameters.
Both systems communicate to the machine control system via the latest technology BRC radio transmission, providing high speed measurement and communications.
The accuracy and high speed operation of BG60 and BG61 make them an efficient and reliable alternative to costly in-line or off-line bore gauging or bore measurement equipment.
Their high speed operation ensure minimum cycle time is lost and in the case of tool wear or malfunction ensure that minimum scrap parts are produced.
