Presetter accurately measures and inspects tools.

Press Release Summary:



With stable ground granite column and base, E-450 ensures movement accuracy of X and Z axes. Spindle body, assembled on spring roller cages, limits run-out error to less than 25 m, while radial rotation spindle brake eliminates error of rotational axis misalignment. Optical scales, with 15 m resolution, detect interference produced by part movement through use of glass ruler attached to fixed part of machine. Max measuring diameter and height is 400 and 500 mm, respectively.

Lyndex-Nikken's New E-450 Presetter Measures And Inspects Tools With Exceptional Accuracy


Mundelein, IL - (August 18, 2004) Lyndex-Nikken's new E-450 presetter by Elbo Controlli offers the latest technology for exceptional accuracy in tool measurement and inspection. For rigid and accurate performance, the E-450 features a unique ground granite column and base, a spindle body assembled on spring roller cages and optical scales. The movement accuracy of both X and Z axes is guaranteed through the use of stable granite supporting surfaces. What's more, the spindle body on the E-450's machine base limits run-out error to less than 25m. A radial rotation spindle brake eliminates the error of rotational axis misalignment. Also ensuring accuracy, the optical scales of the E-450 detect interference produced by part movement through the use of a glass ruler attached to the fixed part of the machine. Each optical scale has a resolution of 15m.

The E-450 incorporates a double system of prismatic rails for X-axis movement with three double re-circulating ball bearing sliding blocks and a monorail with one sliding block for the Z-axis. Axis movements for the E-450 include manual rapid and manual micrometric adjustments

Elbo Controlli's exclusive Twinvision-S camera system is expertly engineered to complement the precise performance of the E-450. A single C-MOS image sensor manages both the inspection and measurement functions using a double lighting source. A multi-LED annular system with brightness adjustment allows for adequate lighting of the cutting edge in inspection mode. The inclusion of a single camera allows for reliability, even in the inspection mode.

The maximum measuring diameter of the E-450 is 400 mm (radius 200 mm) and the maximum measuring height is 500 mm.
