Zoller’s 3dCheck five-axis CNC measurement machine enables fully automatic measurement and evaluation of current standard geometries of round tools. Workpiece alignment and determination of significant geometric characteristics are performed automatically, along with positioning of the transmitted light image processing to the 3D sensor. A measuring plan filed for the tool via the graphic "pilot" interface performs 3D digitalization of the workpiece, which is then evaluated automatically. Topographic target and actual comparison and optional cross sections enable complete analysis of the workpiece at a glance. Data can be exported in a standardized format for further processing in CAD or other 3D analysis applications.

According to Zoller, the measurement machine's compact design was developed specifically for the 3D digitalization application field and enables complete workpiece digitalization from different sensor perspectives. The digitalizations are fed back automatically into a uniform workpiece coordinate system without requiring the elaborate use of reference measuring points or the mechanical mounting of backdrops. Universal machine mechanics ensure optimal positioning of the measuring sensor in relation to the workpiece surface, while the universal toolholding fixture provides high-precision workpiece clamping.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.

  • Gaging Countersunk And Chamfered Holes

    While countersunk and chamfered holes are similar in appearance, functionally they are quite different. Consequently, different gages exist to serve these different functional requirements.
