Accurately measuring your tools before you start machining can pay big dividends.
But finding a system to do that simply and quickly is somewhat of challenge.
Now EZset, the latest product in the Dimac Tooling range, allows your CNC machine to continue production without interruption while every tool is measured, checked for tolerances and adjusted before use.
The new EZset tool presetter with Image Controller is designed to significantly improve your CNC machine productivity with its accurate and integrated calibration edges. Now you can measure the tools and not the machine to make sure that machining time is not wasted.
The EZset system gives each tool a label stating the measurement results, with the ability to store this information into the machine. That means consistent and reliable results each time.
With state-of-the-art Bosch pneumatics, THK guideways and Heidenhain glass scales (in X and Z with 1um resolution) as well as circulated ball bearings for smooth running, EZset is designed to deliver long maintenance free service.
“This machine offers increased profitability through its three-in-one functions of measuring, setting and inspecting your cutting tools with ease,” said Dimac Managing Director, Paul Fowler.
The EZset is easy to install and use, with the complete system, including adapter tray, utensil tray and label printer delivered inside its own ergonomic space saving table.
Once set up, place the tool to be measured into the tool holder, position the optical head, which contains the CMOS camera, power LEDS and transmitted light receptor.
The simple intuitive operation of the Image Controller 1 vision system is achieved through the unique EZ pick-and-push button. Corresponding symbols clearly show the 6.5” TFT monitor, additionally a short explanation appears as text.
“Time-consuming adjustments are no longer necessary with the dynamic crosshairs visible on the monitor, adds Paul.
“They immediately move to the cutting edge and measure it automatically within the entire camera window.
“This allows you not only to measure length, diameter, radius, and two cutting edge angles, it also has other programs that will measure axial and radial run out.”
The EZset range is available in three models – the EZgo400 for smaller shops, the EZset 400 and EZset 600 each for larger shops.
