Measuring tool holders in the magazine
Modern machine tools have complex magazines with various tools that are automatically picked up by the machine. In order for these tools to be accurately picked up, the tool holders must be precisely positioned. To check the position of the tool holders, optoNCDT 1420 laser sensors are used, which measure the metallic holders from above and from the side. These smart laser sensors stand out due to their high measuring rates while providing precise measurement values, despite strongly reflecting, metallic surfaces.
