Visual Tool Setter


The basic principle of Marposs’ Mida Visual Tool Setter (VTS) system is the measurement of tool dimensions through the processing of images taken by a CCD camera. The VTS unit incorporates a double protection system to provide high resistance to harsh machine environ- ments and allows it to be installed inside the machine working area. Pneumatic shutters cover and protect the optical lens when VTS is not working. Airfl ow from the optical window forms


a barrier that rejects chips and coolant drops, keeping the shutter side clean and protecting the optical lens when the shutter is open. Marposs reduced the size to 200 from 300


mm, to make it fi t on most machines. The VTS unit’s main strengths are its repeatability (0.2 µm), which is not affected by the limited dimensions, and the wide variety of elaborated parameters: length and diameter measurement, tool run-out, cutter radius, tool center, single cutter integrity and thermal drift of machine axis. Thanks to its resolution of 0.1 μm, VTS can detect micro tools from a minimum diameter of 10 μm to a maximum of 40 mm. It allows measurements of tool length, static and dynamic tool diameter, cutting edge TIR, cutter radius in real use condition up to 80-k rpm. Marposs Corp.
