Original Press Release:
Precitech's New Process Automation Part Centering Apparatus
The Precitech Part Centering Accessory (PCA) utilizes a combination probe and reference surface to align the outer diameter of a vacuum mounted, round, continuous surface component relative to the rotational axis of the work holding spindle to an accuracy of 2 microns in 15 seconds or less.
This PCA device mounts to the Z-axis tooling plate of a Precitech (N250, N250UG, N700 or FF705) with UPx control. The device consumes slightly more real estate than a standard Precitech tool holder however can be mounted in a location at the far end of the work envelope and requires very little X-axis travel to function.
The combination probe/reference surface is protected from the environment with a cover that automatically opens when the device is enabled and is closed upon completion of the auto centering operation.
