The optional DME system adds a fixed second camera no the x-axis, along with an LED incident light to perform electronic measurement of center height on turning tools. The cutting edge will be displayed on the touchscreen in color at 20 / 40 or 80x magnification. With a mouse click on the cutting edge, the measured value appears on the screen. The maximal measuring range is +/- 3 mm from tool center.
Within this range it is possible to measure radii and angles by mouse click.
All alfa-set presetters alfa-set 23/25/44/46/64 and 66 with the image processing systems vision 2, vision 4 and the PC-Version vision 5 can be equipped with the center height measuring option “DME”.
