Acu-Rite Companies Inc. offers the VUE LCD readout, an entry level solution for manual machine tool applications. The major innovation of the DRO console is the clear LCD display which replaces traditional seven-segment LED display technology. All the consoles have 5.7", 320 × 240 resolution transmissive LCD displays. Major benefits of this display technology are that users can now configure the console for a one-, two- or three-axis display and can set the application software for milling, turning, or grinding / general use according to their needs. The system is also completely intuitive as all prompts, instructions and help functions are visible as text or graphics on the screen. In addition, all standard routines are now visible on the screen with graphics to guide users through the simple questions. The readout comes fully loaded with bolt hole pattern calculations for full and partial circles with graphics, zero reset and preset features, tool diameter compensation and near-zero warning. Available as a two- or three-axis LCD display, the turning solution features 16 tool offsets that make it simple to compensate for different tool sizes. When the tool offset is used with the axis lock feature, the tool deflection is reduced, even under load. There is also a solution for grinding and general use. These applications are completed with ease using the zero reset, linear error compensation, instant radius to diameter and inch to millimeter conversions, and absolute / incremental display features.
