WALTER launches Tool Vision System

For correct pre-positioning of tools and blanks prior to machining, WALTER now offers a new Tool Vision System for all its tool grinding / eroding machines with robot loader. This system detects contact free, the orientation of the tool or blank, with e.g. brazed PCD plates on the front, sintered PCD veins or with cooling channels. The detecting is done automatically and during idle time. This means significant timesaving compared to the manual measurement method, eliminates human errors and avoids damage to the tool due to the non-contact method.The Tool Vision System is permanently installed in the robot cell and available with two lenses. The one lens for tool diameter from 1.7 mm to 12 mm, the other lens for tool diameter from 6 mm to 32 mm.
 
Walter Maschinenbau GmbH produces CNC machines for grinding and/or eroding metal, wood and PCD tools and rotationally-symmetrical production components. Together with its sister company Ewag AG and its broad product range for the production of indexable inserts (including innovative laser machines tools), the company provides system and solution for tool machining. WALTER and EWAG together represent the technology group for tool processing within the larger UNITED GRINDING Group.
