The Profilab system uses an Xactum high speed, high accuracy Laser Micrometer to measure the diameter and the edge positions of the part, which is mounted on a motor driven slide and moved by a linear motor; the slide is fitted with a digital linear scale to read the longitudinal position of the sample.
To assure maximum accuracy and stiffness, the slide is aligned and mounted on a flat granite base. The part is moved to the measuring positions, following a pre-set “measuring program” stored in the computer memory. It is also possible to rotate the part, in order to get roundness or run out at any given position.
By using suitable fixtures and by processing the diameter, the edge positions and the longitudinal displacement information, it is possible to check several dimensions, on a number of different parts. The measured data is processed by a PC with integrated touch sensitive 19” TFT screen; the provided software comes with an extremely friendly user interface. The software is “locked” and self-starting so the operator will have the program running immediately (not starting from Windows!)
Several accessories and fixtures are available to hold and position the parts being measured, such as two V blocks, two dead centres or cones, two couples of precision free rollers, motor driven centre + live centre, etc. all adjustable in position along the slide table and following the specific application requirement.
Some benefits include:
The PROFILAB.X40 System is an automatic laser measuring station, useful to check a wide range of turned or ground parts such as:
It measures diameter, length, roundness, taper and run-out of cylindrical sections, effective cutting diameter of fluted cutting tools, and straightness of hard metal blanks.
