ITC Flattens Time for Levelling Machine Tool Tables

ITC Flattens Time for Levelling Machine Tool Tables

Added to MTDCNC by ITC LTD on 13 May 2017

As a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metalworking industries, BIG KAISER has now launched the Level Master, a portable two-axis electronic levelling tool for fast high-precision machine setup that is available in the UK from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC).

The Level Master from ITC simultaneously detects the level on both horizontal axes with remarkable speed and ease. The new system drastically cuts the time and costs associated with the traditional 'eye-splitting' bubble levelling method, which requires two levellers to be used side-by-side. With the new Level Master device, inclination is shown by easy-to-read colour status LEDs and a buzzer indicates when the horizontal plane is level. This development enables service and maintenance personnel to focus on levelling the machine tool instead of watching two spirit levels; the ability to quickly verify the precision of existing setups is an additional bonus.

As accurate as a laser leveller, the Level Master utilises state-of-the-art optical level sensor technology to deliver ultra-high setting precision of 0.01mm (10 micron) inclination per meter. A lower precision mode with an accuracy of 0.1mm/m is also available for fast and easy rough alignment.

Compared to a laser leveller, the Level Master is substantially cheaper, more portable and it can be set up within seconds. The convenient 'self-calibration' feature enables the customer to calibrate on-site, which further adds to its functionality as it saves both time and money while guaranteeing consistent accuracy.

"It's all about confidence. Service and maintenance staff now have a fast and accurate method for ensuring that machining tools are precisely level," says Giampaolo Roccatello, VP Sales at BIG KAISER. "The Level Master saves valuable time, reduces setup costs and significantly eliminates potential for error. With so much on the line, the Level Master is a 'must have' for any professional maintenance engineer."

The device has an operating temperature range from 0° to 40°C and it is easily portable with an external diameter of 109mm, a height of 46mm and a weight of only 985g. The Level Master is a robust unit that sits within a heavy-duty aluminum case for optimal protection in factory floor conditions.

The Level Master has a nominal battery lifetime of 50 hours, using four AAA batteries. When considering the combination of its auto shut off function, the Level Master can provide service and maintenance staff with several weeks and even months of operation.
