m&h Laser Tool Setter LTS35.60

m&h LTS35.60 - the premium Laser Tool Setter

LTS3560M
Premium laser tool setter for dynamic tool measurement in the high-end sector. The non-contact precision measurement makes possible dynamic length and diameter checking on almost every tool from Ø 0.008 mm.

Design, concept and construction as well the quality of the optics used ensure straightforward alignment, calibration, reliable setup and operation of the laser unit. The stainless steel housing as well as the largely maintenance-free laser optics and the straightforward handling make this system ideally suited to workshop use.

TOOL CLEANING USING LAVAL NOZZLE

  • Laval nozzle with supersonic pressure
  • Tool cleaning in measuring position
  • Tool cleaning with nominal rotation speed for optimum cleaning results
  • Minimal cleaning distance
  • Sealing cap prevents penetration of foreign objects and liquid
Precision and process reliability
  • Precision measurements regardless of geometry and tool dimensions
  • Uncertainty in measurement due to varying thermal expansion of materials is ruled out
  • Precision measurements for tools larger than 0.008 mm (0.0003'')
  • Supersonic air jets significantly reduce measurement errors from dirt on the tool
  • Software algorithms to eliminate the effects of coolant drops
  • No interference from ambient light

Sturdy design

  • Compact, stainless steel housing
  • Laser optics protected using motor-operated shutter unit
  • Air curtain prevents dirt particles entering the device
  • Measurement system sealed according to IP68 standard

Simple setup

  • Simple mounting and setup without special pneumatic unit
  • No special, accurate alignment of the laser unit required
  • Simple orientation and mechanical definition of the focal point
  • No external activation of the shutter unit and air curtain

Operation suitable for the workshop

  • Simple and reliable calibration and set-up of the laser unit
  • Maintenance of the laser optics without tools, removable shutter unit
  • Easy to regulate, accessible air curtain
  • Measurement of very short tools possible

Applications and measuring routines

  • Dynamic, precision measurement of length and diameter for almost any tool from Ø >0.008 mm (0.0003")
  • Measurement of the cutting edge geometry at nominal speed
  • Length compensation of dynamic changes in tool position
  • Correction of tool length in case of thermal change and thermal drift of the spindle or machine axes
  • Diameter compensation for dynamic changes in the rotational diameter of a tool
  • Detection and compensation of tool wear
