Mida VTS WF85 Visual Tool Setter Inspects Entire Workpiece

Originally titled 'Visual Tool Setter Inspects Entire Workpiece'

Marposs Corp.’s Mida VTS WF85 visual tool setter can perform both profile and surface integrity inspection of the entire tool front to back, identifying any minor faults in the work tool that could affect workpiece integrity. 

Marposs Corp.’s Mida VTS WF85 visual tool setter is a wide field version suited for non-contact measuring and verifying double-sided, larger diameter tools. Relying upon LED technology, the wide field versions can perform both profile and surface integrity inspection of the entire tool front to back, identifying any minor faults in the work tool that could affect workpiece integrity. Typical applications include CNC machines, especially milling machines where tools are heavily subjected to wear and dimensions need to be continually checked.

This wide field version can process tools with diameters from 40 microns up to 40 mm, or 2.9-mm diameter for double sided measurements, while achieving resolution of 0.4 microns and repeatability of 0.8 microns. The VTS wide field version performs measurements on tool diameters of up to 5 mm in one positioning cycle.
