TwinCam – Tool presetting and measuring device with auxiliary 2nd camera for axial and radial measuring with frontal illumination
Extend the capabilities of the alfa set 23 or 44 tool presetters for tool inspection and measurement with twincam.
twincam is equipped with a second 90° swiveling color camera with frontal illumination and a Heidenhain rotary encoder for the B-axis. All measurements using the second camera, radial and axial, are made with frontal illumination at 20x/40x or 80x magnification. The live picture acts as a measuring surface for all major tool parameters. Measuring points can also be set on the screen using the mouse pointer. In principle, all angles and radii visible by the camera can be measured. TwinCam includes a number of unique measuring programs to take advantage of the extended capabilities.
Available with either the Swift vision system or the Tactile Measuring System (TMS), the Alfa Set 53 features the same rock-solid construction and ball-bearing sleeve as the Alfa Set 33, but adds a second taper-pot to allow for measuring large diameter tools in a simple, economic solution.
Setting and testing device for rotary cutting tools such as:
Face milling cutters
Twin cutter boring heads for roughing
Twist drills etc.
Concentricity errors on cutting tools impair machine performance and the service life of the tool blade!
The alfa test uses the unique alfa sys ball-bearing sleeve tool spindle (ISO 40 or ISO 50) to assure maximum runout accuracy of the tool spindle (0.005mm at 300 mm over the gauge line). Aluminium base, power-coated RAL 9016
Optional articulated stand with central clamping system and micro-fine adjustment.
