On Machine Camera Options for Diamond Turning

When optimizing the productivity of ultra-precise machining systems the most important factor to consider is the machine uptime.

Significant lengths of downtime cost productivity, with the biggest cause of downtime being the measurement of set-up components using off-machine metrology. Using an on-machine solution, such as Precitech’s Horizontal Optical Tool Setter, can remove 30 minutes of unproductive time.

Key Benefits

  • Large reduction in the time required to measure tool sets
  • The measurements provided are relative, i.e. independent of kinematic mount accuracy
  • Lower chance of operator error
  • Off-line metrology systems remain available for final measurements
  • Based on established technology
