Meclab Tools T40

Bench-top Laser Micrometer
MECLAB.T40 is a high precision laser instrument for quick and simple diameter measurements of hard metal blanks and full carbide cutting tools with odd or even edges.
It’s ideal for the off-line checking of:-

  • Drill bits
  • End mills
  • Reamers
  • Cutting tools

In addition it can be also used to check the diameter, ovality and straightness of:-

  • Hard metal blanks
  • Ground pins or cylinders

Using no PC, it is ideal for use in the workshop, close to the machine
... Simple ... quick … accurate … cost-effective

Tool measurement

Meclab Tools

Using the tool dedicated menu, it is possible to check full carbide tools with ODD or EVEN cutting edges. The measurement mode must be On-Command Continuous and the part must be rotated (manually or automatically) to detect the max and min positions of the Bottom and Top edges. In this way the software measures the tool diameter DMAX (EVEN edges only), the Effective Cutting Diameter DCUT and the RUNOUT.
The RUNOUT is calculated as the maximum swing of the peak position of all the cutting edges during

  • Multiple language pop-up menus for easy set-up and programming
  • Display millimetres or inches
  • Automatic seeking of the “zero point”
  • Reading the slide position
  • Quick change over of the cutting edge number
  • Display of 3 measured variables
  • Quick tolerance check and alarm outputs
  • 1000 parts library for quick programming
  • I/O Lines for Easy Interfacing and start/stop input for a foot switch
  • Connection to a PC and easy Excel interface

Fast measurements of the following products:

  • Drill bits
  • End mills
  • Reamers
  • Cutting tools
  • Hard metal blanks
  • Ground pins or cylinders

DIA = Average Diameter
DDIA = Deviation of the average diameter
CEN = Average position of the centre
DCEN = Deviation of the average position of the centre
POS = Linear encoder position
T-AM Estimated ambient temperature
MIN-D = Minimum Diameter
MAX-D = Maximum Diameter
DMIN-D = Deviation of the minimum diameter
DMAX-D = Deviation of the maximum diameter
RNG-C = Range of the centre position
MIN-C = Minimum centre position
MAX-C = Maximum centre position
DMIN-C = Deviation of the minimum centre position
DMAX-C = Deviation of the maximum centre position


The Automatic version includes in addition:

  • Motor driven device to rotate the part, with friction driving wheel and stepper motor
  • Equipped base, mounted under the granite base containing the electronic driver for the motor

Common Options:

  • NO-VAR software option for the automatic self-compensation of the parts thermal expansion, by programming its thermal expansion coefficient
  • GageXcom Software for data transfer to Excel
