Cutting Tool & Edge Prep
Miniaturization Requires High-Quality Tools
With what seems like 1000 cutting tool inspection methods in use today, the Accu-Tool and Accu-Edge by Laser Measuring Technologies simplify tool measurement. Technology is driving manufacturers to create, and consumers to buy micro products. Good quality micro methods and means with higher accuracy are essential to creating these micro products. We use the latest technology in vision and optics to acquire cutting tool images at micro-levels.
Accurate Tools Save Time & Money
There are lower-cost cutting tool measuring systems, however, recalibration must be performed several times a day with other lower-quality cutting tool inspection systems.
Thermal Expansion Matters
Thermal growth wasn’t as much of a factor on standard cutting tools 10 years ago. One of the key factors in our accuracy over other measuring systems is the quality of materials used in our systems. The high-precision linear bearing rails on our cutting tool measuring systems are directly mounted to a granite base and upright x and z-axis to ensure maximum thermal stability.
Coefficiency of linear temperature expansion (a.k.a. CLTE) is the cause and effects of the temperature. Aluminum is .0000123/inch to .0000129 of expansion per inch of material per degree Fahrenheit, while granite is .0000044 of expansion per inch for the same measurement. Granite is four times better in thermal stability than aluminum.
Cleaner Tools Measure More Accurately
When dimensional precision of the cutting tool is of the utmost importance, the tool cleanliness must be taken into consideration. A single spec of dirt, dust, debris can produce false measurements and potentially create unnecessary adjustments at the machine. Our TC-BOSS Cutting Tool Steam Cleaner makes it easy.
Laser Measuring Technologies has developed cutting tool measuring machines around the needs of our customers. We continually strive to bring our customers the latest technology by utilizing the most advanced components on the market. In spite of using the most advanced technology, we offer the most competitive prices ever heard of!
