The software module tool realityCheck from Zoller is designed to provide fast, precise collision checks during setup to determine whether a scanned tool matches the original simulation tool. The module records the tool’s actual contour while it is rotated, simulating the machining process.
 
The operator enters the start and end points of the requested tool contour. The measuring program automatically positions the camera at the starting point and measures the contour during rotation. An actual/nominal comparison is displayed along with the results of the collision check. A green light means that the machining processes can be performed; a red light indicates a collision. The module is available for all Zoller CNC tool presetter and measuring machines.
