Marposs will introduce its new Mida Diamond line of high precision machine tool touch probes and tool setters at IMTS 2016. The Mida Diamond line has been developed to assist in controlling the entire production process in all its phases: from work-piece set-up and inspection to tool pre-setting and control. The high precision products address industries that require high accuracy controls on very complex surfaces such as aerospace, biomedical and dental, mold and die production, and micro-manufacturing applications.
Mida Diamond Touch Probes for part checking are designed to guarantee exceptional measuring performance thanks to piezoelectric technology. The probes are available with various transmission methods including wired transmission, optical transmission and radio transmission.
The Mida Diamond Visual Tool Setter (VTS) for tool checking implements a vision technology using a video camera to detect tool dimensions, in particular those of micro-tools, and for complex measurements. VTS can be used together with dedicated measuring software, for checking a wide range of tools, guaranteeing repeatability of less than 1µm. Advantages of the new Mida Diamond probing line include reduced machining and checking times, increased production efficiency, reduced production rejects, and constant machining quality level during the entire production process.
