The process-oriented measuring system (POM) is an inspection machine designed for the tool manufacturing industry and other applications involving grinding or sharpening. Equipped with special functionality for milling cutters and drills, the unit is designed for sample inspection and quick tool checks. It is typically installed next to the CNC machine within a compact footprint.
 
High-resolution CCD cameras enable inspection of the cutting edge in incident light, and six-fold magnification provides the option to simultaneously measure tool geometries. The user defines measuring points and lines depending on the cutting edge contour via mouse click. Measuring results are displayed in an overview table and can be printed, stored in the company database or directly transferred to the network.
