In the field of applications where non-contact tool setters are possible, Mida Laser P is a system capable of measuring tools of any size on machining centers and or milling machines. Utilizing laser technology, Mida Laser P is able to provide extremely precise values of length and diameter even for small tools (less than one millimeter).
From the point of view of measurement speed, Mida Laser P can work very rapidly due to optimized software even if the tool is still rotating.
Its interface makes the system programmable and adaptable to most types of operative conditions.
Mida Laser P is a system adaptable to complex measurement applications such as:
Tool breakage detection
Length and diameter measurement with rotating tool
Tool wear compensation and cutter integrity check
Machine axes thermal drift compensation
One main feature of Mida Laser P is its integrated protection system, that makes possible excellent measurement performances even with the presence of coolant or dust. When not in use, mechanical shutters protect both the emitter and receiver from the harsh machine environment. On the contrary, during a measurement cycle, a patented solution creates an air barrier to protect the laser beam. Furthermore, the integrated microprocessor is able to elaborate the received signal to filter errors linked to the presence of coolant and swarf. Such triple protection (mechanical, pneumatic, software) guarantees the excellence of measurement results.
Due to the flexibility of the interface, Mida Laser P can be programmed to adapt with the machine type and the implemented measurement cycle, thus enabling the checks to be performed in real machining conditions.
Increased quality of the production process
Less machine down-time
Less scrap parts
Flexibility of use
Mida Laser P can be a standalone or modular type system, making it possible to fit most diverse machine configurations and tool typologies.
Mida Laser P – Modular
Mida Laser P system is composed of separate modules (one emitter and one receiver) that can be installed at a substantial distance between each unit. It’s available with either a collimated or focused beam. The focused version is essential for the integrity of measuring tools with diameter below 1 mm, while the collimated is ideal for larger machine tools, thus enabling measuring at every point of the beam.
Mida Laser P - Stand Alone
With the Mida Laser P Stand Alone, emitter and receiver are fixed on a rigid support, which can have different dimensions according to the maximum tool to be checked (on request, such support can reach even 1000 mm).
