ZOLLER will be exhibiting new technology at IMTS 2020 in Chicago this September.

The Zoller Venturion tool presetting machine is designed with Bosch pneumatics, THK guideways, Uhing drives and Heidenhain glass scales. CNC drives for both the X and Z axes as well as an autofocusing spindle combine to enable micron-precise measurements. Featuring the company’s ACE spindle, change-over accuracy is said to be 1 micron. 

The company’s Pilot 3.0 software is included on the machine, enabling the measurement of complex tool geometries. The eQ one-hand control handle featured on the machine enables ergonomic maneuvering of the optics carrier. With data output, users send their tool offset information directly to the machine control from the software.

  • 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.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    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.
