Lasers Go Beyond Making Their Mark
Today the laser plays a vital role in many areas, including research, communication, industry, medicine, environmental care and, of course, manufacturing.

Laser Highlights
The number of different laser applications is surprising, yet it continues to grow. Here's a look at a few.

Electronic Probe For Grinding, Turning And Milling
The TC76 is a compact touch probe for measuring operations where a hard-wired probe is required. The machine-mounted touch probe takes full advantage of Blum's measuring system that incorporates optoelectric signal generation by light barrier, with its inherently precise non-lobing touch characteristics. Around the periphery of the device is an LED display giving the operator an optical indication of the trigger state; the probe data transmission is by way of a two-wire (two-pole) M16 × 1 interface.

Measuring System For Combined Turn-Mill Machines
This electronic measuring system specially suited for tool setting for turn-mill centers, combines all the advantages of non-contact laser measuring of rotating tools with the mechanical touch probing of non-rotating tools in five approach directions within a single bolt-on unit, including precise non-lobing touch characteristics and optoelectronic signal generation, according to the company. Blum's shark360 technology, which introduces a face gear measuring mechanism system to perform off-center probing as, for example, when using cranked styli by providing a repeatable home position in the probe. The measuring mechanism gives full protection against coolant and chips, and it can be customized.

Air Operated Shutter

Process-Oriented Measuring Technology For Turning Tools
Because tools create the geometric shape of a workpiece, the accuracy of this shape is dependent on the position of the cutting edge to the workpiece. Therefore, the position of the cutting edge should be identified and maintained as precisely as possible. One reliable method for achieving the accuracy needed is through the use of a laser system for tool setting.

Laser Micrometer Measures Parts In Process
Much buzz around the industry is focused on how best to apply CNC in multi-spindle screw machine shops. Some advocate total commitment to the technology, while others believe a mixture of mechanical and electronic actuation is the ticket. We visited multi-spindle builder Euroturn to see how it decides what an appropriate level of CNC and mechanical actuation is.
