Three New Parlec Systems Provide Complete Presetting Solutions
Fairport, N.Y. - May 3, 2002 - The combination of high-resolution video camera technology and super-small micro processing capabilities, found in Parlec's new Parsetter TMM Tool Measuring and Inspection Systems, provide complete presetting solutions.
The Parsetter TMM LiteVision Plus and the ParleVision IV systems utilize a Windows 2000-based tool management system, allowing users to manage all tool assemblies for jobs running on machining centers and cells. The PGC IV Tool Data Management and Presetter Control software, included with both systems, can store six pages of tool data, digital pictures, tool drawings and allows viewing of CAD files from the presetter. The ParleVision IV also comes with complete 3-axis automation and includes auto position, focus and index along with the ability to run complex measuring routines.
"Lite Vision Plus and ParleVision IV come with a Parlec tool catalog and tool component library for the quick building of new tools in the main catalog," said Chris Nuccitelli, presetter product manager at Parlec. "Once the tools are measured, the push of a button can send data to the DNC system for automatic downloading to the CNC machine's control." TMM Touch Screen Control, an added element to the Lite Vision Plus and ParleVision IV systems, provides a solvent-proof touch screen display to assist operators handling the parsetters.
For applications requiring precise measuring and powerful tool inspection without advanced tool data management, the X-Vision system provides easy access to operators, and matches with a standard digital read out (DRO) control.
"For an upgrade requiring no additional computers or software, the X- Vision system offers an affordable solution with its 30X 'Smart' video camera that can be programmed to recognize hundreds of tool forms and perform many measuring and inspection functions," said Nuccitelli.
Improving on all Parsetter TMM Tool Measuring and Inspection Systems, Parlec's new high precision quick-change spindle systems feature match- ground precision, universal mechanical clamping and a 3-Axis option on the ParleVision system.
