Blum is showcasing laser measuring systems with DIGILOG technology

The Germany measuring technology major is demonstrating its proven LaserControl series with DIGILOG technology at ongoing IMTEX 2019, happening at Bengaluru International Exhibition Centre from January,24-30, 2019. The impressive performance of the LaserControl series has been ensuring maximum precision, reliability and efficiency in countless machining centres for decades now. From machines for micro-machining, to series production right up to large component machining, these systems are used to guarantee highest quality around the clock for an economically viable price. And the latest generation is writing a new chapter in this success story: The trailblazing DIGILOG technology opens up a multitude of previously inconceivable applications in production measurement technology.

DIGILOG Technology
Digital is already outdated – the future is DIGILOG. Starting with the touch probes, DIGILOG technology has now also revolutionized laser measurement technology for machine tools. It provides for the analogue signal evaluation of all the cutting edges of a tool. This results in an extremely large number of measuring values in a very short space of time, making tool measurement more precise, fast and reliable than ever before

  • HIGHLY DYNAMIC MEASUREMENT OF ALL TOOL PARAMETERS
  • THOUSANDS OF MEASURING VALUES OF ALL TOOL CUTTING EDGES PER SECOND
  • UP TO 60% LESS MEASURING AND CHECKING TIME
  • DYNAMIC ADJUSTMENT OF THE MEASURING SPEED ACCORDING TO THE NOMINAL TOOL RPM
    PRECISE.
  • DIGILOG CALIBRATION WITH INTEGRATED RUN-OUT MONITORING
  • EVALUATION OF A DATA STREAM
  • CONSISTENTLY GOOD PART PRECISION THROUGH PROCESS INTEGRATED TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION
  • RECOGNITION OF CHANGES IN GEOMETRY SUCH AS TOOL CUTTING EDGE WEAR
    RELIABLE.
  • RELIABLE MEASUREMENT EVEN WITH COOLANT INFLUENCE
  • AUTOMATIC FILTERING OF DIRT AND COOLANT RESIDUE ON TOOL
  • RUN-OUT MONITORING DETECTS BAD AND DIRTY TOOL HOLDERS AND SOILING

PREMIUM LASER OPTICS
The laser optics have always been the heart of BLUM laser measuring systems. It forms the basis for the unparalleled repeatability and absolute accuracy ratings. The high quality, the coherent beam geometry and the focused laser beam make for optimal measurement results, even when measuring micro-tools and extremely small cutting edge geometries. This ensures the best performance under the most difficult conditions and a degree of precision that is in a class of its own compared with all relevantly comparable measuring systems.

UNIQUE SHUTTERS
Thanks to a complete redesign, the shutters guarantee reliable operation in any production situation. Together with the explosion-type cleaning of the shutter aperture, the extremely strong stream of barrier air provides the best possible protection for the optical equipment. Further highlights include reducing the air consumption to zero during stand-by and the laminar flow of air to ensure highest levels of precision.

HPC NOZZLE
All current laser measuring systems are now supplied with the new HPC nozzle as standard. The ingenious construction means that it can be mounted on either side, and it works with an integrated check valve to prevent coolant accumulating. The very high-pressure cleaning and the air jet that is perfectly  concentrated onto the measurement point, allow for fast and residue-free cleaning-off of coolants, chips and ther kinds of soiling.
