MEASUREMENT OF CUTTING TOOL EDGES IN PRODUCTION
Already established as the defacto tool measurement system for tool makers the range of Edgemaster products offered by Alicona Metrology are also available to manufacturing organisations to ensure conistent tool quality in the manufacturing process.
The EdgeMaster is an optical 3D measurement device for automatic cutting edge measurement. Edges are measured regardless of type, size, material or surface finish of the tool. Users measure radii > 2μm as well as rake, wedge and clearance angle of cutting edges. Different types, including both waterfall and trumpet, are precisely measured. The robust technology of Focus-Variation delivers stable and traceable measurements also in a near production environment. The systems can be used both on Inserts and Rotary Tools. www.alicona.com
