VTS

VISUAL TOOL SETTER FOR NC MACHINES

High-Tech industry demands for reliable and high precision products are becoming essential in order to guarantee high quality manufacturing.

Marposs VTS is a contactless measuring system that guarantees extremely accurate results and it's suitable to check tool dimensions (Ømin = 10 μm, Ømax = 40 mm) on those applications where quality is more important than quantity.

VTS allows to measure following results using just one positioning cycle:

  • Tool length
  • Static and Dynamic tool diameter
  • Cutting edge TIR
  • Cutter radius
  • Micro-tool dynamic center
  • Compensation of machine axes thermal drift
Typical fields of application are numerical-control machines, especially milling machines where tool is heavily subject to wear and its dimensions need to be continually checked. In order to withstand harsh machine conditions, pneumatic shutters and air barriers provide protection to optical parts, in addition innovative digital cleaning SW removes rough results.

Main added value of VTS is combining mechanic and contactless tool setting benefits: tools are measured during actual conditions without any contact, therefore providing pre-setting time reduction and no collision hazards. At the same time results are not affected by tool geometry, thus accuracy is < 2 μm for any size and shape. 

Benefits

  • Independent of tool geometry and dimensions
  • Excellent metrology performances
  • All measurements in the same positioning cycle
  • No need of tool information
  • Double protections system and easy to use GUI (Graphical User Interface)

Applications

  • CNC micro-milling machines
  • High precision metal part production
  • Die & mould production
