The Mida Laser 75P noncontact programmable tool setting system from Marposs incorporates a protection system with air tunnel effect, powerful integrated microprocessor for best performance under coolant, active drip rejection filter, and enhanced noise reduction with double filtering technology. The programmable feature enables the system to be adapted to the tool type under verification, to the same rotation speed as used during machining, and to the desired measuring cycle. The system comes with a collimated or focused laser beam. The focused model is key for cutting edge integrity verification and length measurements of chisel or rounded nose tools, or for tools with a diameter of less than 1 mm (0.039 in). Typical uses of the system include tool identification, tool breakage detection, presetting of unknown tools, tool dynamic length and diameter measurement, tool wear compensation, tool cutting edge profile integrity verification, and machine axis thermal drift compensation.
