BIG KAISER Develops Portable Non-Contact Tool Measuring System

Added to MTDCNC by ITC LTD on 01 November 2015

Introduced at the recent EMO exhibition in Milan, BIG KAISER has now announced the arrival of its new Dyna Line Portable. This portable non-contact tool measuring system that delivers the industry’s highest levels of accuracy is now available in the UK from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC).


The new Dyna Line Portable uses a linear image measuring system that is based on CMOS sensors with tiny 1.4mm pixels. This enables the innovative new technology to work to an indicating resolution of just 1mm. This enables the Dyna Line Portable to measure a cutting tool diameter and total indicated runout (TIR) more precisely than laser-dot measurement systems.


The new system can measure tools in the diameter range of 0.1mm to 50mm, using offsets for dimensions over 4mm. Capable of measuring tools at rotation speeds of up to 400m/min, the  Dyna Line Portable is based on optical, non-contact operation that avoids the risk of damage to delicate tools. When determining TIR, it can easily measure tools with an odd number of teeth, up to 9 flutes.


Measuring only 232 by 132mm, the system is completely portable and can easily be carried around to measure tools on different machines. It can be used with 6 C-cell batteries that will provide up to 5 hours of portable operation. Furthermore, it has a built-in eco mode that reduces power consumption to maximise battery life. The Dyna Line Portable available from ITC, has a clear, easy-to-use electronic control panel. For safety, a timer can start measurement at a pre-programmed interval of up to 999 seconds after shutting the machine door and starting tool rotation.


‘’By applying CMOS image sensor technology, we have been able to achieve industry-leading levels of accuracy with Dyna Line Portable– without sacrificing portability or ease of use,’’ says Peter Elmer, CEO of BIG KAISER. For further information on the exciting new measurement system that was launched at EMO Milan 2015, please contact your local ITC representative.
