In-Process Tool verifies proper mold position.

Press Release Summary:

To prevent mistakes caused by inaccurate mold repositioning, TolTec Microimage Measurer verifies accuracy of mold measurements and checks surface finish during moldmaking process while mold is still in place on EDM or milling machine. It also accelerates production by eliminating routine of removing, measuring, and relocating molds. Measurements are taken and recorded from machine's CNC controller, allowing operator to check X-Y tolerances on-the-fly.

Cut Time and Maintain Accuracy During Mold Repositioning

New TolTec Microimage Measurer from Consumable Products Group

Wood Dale, IL-MC Machinery Systems, Inc. has always led the industry, delivering the newest equipment and technology to keep its customers successful. The new TolTec Microimage Measurer prevents costly mistakes often caused by inaccurate mold repositioning.

One of the most risky things for an operator to do is return a part to the sinker machine after removing it for inspection. If the part is placed even slightly out of position and machining is continued, the tool can easily be damaged and possibly ruined.

The TolTec Microimage Measurer eliminates this danger by verifying the accuracy of mold measurements and checking surface finish during the moldmaking process while the mold is still in place on the EDM or milling machine.

Not only does the TolTec Microimage Measurer decrease costly errors, it also speeds production. The time-consuming routine of removing, measuring and relocating the mold is eliminated. Accurate measurements are taken and recorded from the machine's CNC controller, allowing the operator to check tolerances on the fly with ease.

o Quick, hassle-free changeover from tooling head to imaging head
o Precise, in-process measurement verification of mold without removal from host machine for reduced downtime and increased productivity
o In-process X-Y tolerance verification
o High-resolution video inspection with 15-inch LCD monitor and integral lens laser point finder
o Working tolerances equal to those of host machines

o Compatibility with a variety of EDM and milling machines
o Choice of 30X, 55X and 250X lenses and 3R, EROWA and NB fixtures
