Big Kaiser Speroni Essentia

Big Kaiser’s Speroni STP Essentia tool presetting and measuring system performs measurements next to machine tools. It enables users to measure tools offline and has user-friendly controls designed to optimize tool measurement operations. The MaxP runout function, base post processor and entry-level tool database are included in the Essentia control.

Presetters measure the cutting edges of tools to ensure they match job specifications and are ready for use in the machine. Adjustments that could take up to 15 minutes can be made offline in less than one minute on a presetter, the company says, allowing the machine to continue cutting.

  • How Accurate Is Your Machining Center?

    Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
