Software Cycles for Part and Tool Measure and Verification

SOFTWARE FOR PROBING AND LASER APPLICATIONS

Marposs has been an international market leader in the machine tool precision measurement sector for over 60 years. In response to the growing demand for increased accuracy when measuring work pieces and the geometrical dimensions and form of the finished part, as well as when setting and checking the tools used in the machining process, Marposs has developed a series of new software packages for its contact and non-contact probe systems.

Software Cycles for Part and Tool Measure and Verification
DESCRIPTION

The software cycles have been designed for use during the production processes, which means that they can be used to check the part under machine conditions; this reduces the number of rejects, effectively increasing savings from an economic point of view.

The software packages are used together with MIDA touch probes on MIDA Laser, TBD and VTS systems. They are applicable in the case of both part and tool inspection processes, and on every type of machine tool, machining centre, milling machine and turning centre, in addition, they are compatible with all the most widely used numerical control systems.

BENEFITS
  • Process and quality control
  • Ease of installation
  • Adaptability to the machine configuration
  • Speed and accuracy of each measurement
  • Suitable for monitoring and measuring a wide variety of parts and tools
VERSIONS
  • Probing software cycles for inspecting parts on machining centres and milling machines
    The cycles designed to check the parts include a series of macros for measuring holes, shafts, surfaces, edges, pockets, shoulders and stock. These are sub-divided into three levels:
    • routine Inspection Basic designed to perform simple alignment and measurement functions on simple geometrical elements
    • routine Inspection Premium, which include flexible angular and vectorial cycles
    • routine Inspection Ultimate, designed to simply complex measurements, which would otherwise require complicated calculations, including aligning the probe with respect to the three working planes

The table below lists the composition of each level.

  • Probing software cycles for tool inspections on machining centres and milling machines
  • Probing software cycles for part inspections on lathes and turning centres
  • Probing software cycles for tool inspections on lathes and turning centres
  • Laser software cycles for tool inspections on machining centres and milling machines
    The laser software package library has been designed for performing in-machine tool measurements using the MIDA Laser systems.
    The tool inspection cycles are performed on the tool while it is rotating, and enable the user to:
  •  Identify the tool
  • Check the tool for breakages
  • Measure the tool length and diameter
  • Measure the length and diameter of boring bars
  • Check and update tool length and diameter
  • Check the integrity of the tool cutting edge profile
  • Measure and update the cutting radius and identify the worn sector
  • Correct machine axes thermal drift

It is possible to perform multiple measurements on the tool during the machining cycle in order to check it for signs of wear at regular intervals.

The tool condition check is carried out based on the tolerance values PROGRAMMED by the operator.
