VICI Vision’s M1 is the ideal tool to flank multi-spindle lathes or sliding head lathes. With a compact design, it can easily handle simple fittings and small shafts, measuring up to 60×300 mm.
M1 embraces the concepts of ergonomics and is designed to improve use in production. And now, with an even faster speed, it reduces measuring times and sets a new bar in its sector.
• Able to perform inspections in a matter of seconds and programs in just minutes
• Allows for more operator independence during inspection
• Measurement uninfluenced by manual intervention
• Able to set tool offset before values are out of tolerance
A live image of the piece being displayed by the software, combined with an LED-illuminated extensive working area, gives a clear vision of conditions for the component being measured.
Retractable sensors enabled during loading and unloading provide reinforcement, with additional one-of-a-kind protective bumpers. An ergonomic piece-clamping lever has a considerably wide grip, which is suitable both for left and right-handed operators and prevents obstruction of view when clamping or un-clamping the piece.
An increased load capacity also allows elements up to 120 mm in diameter to be positioned.
Greater Efficiency on Small Batches
With the M1, the first piece of every batch must be measured to set the machining center. After this is complete, having the M1 beside a machine can save up to an hour, which helps increase efficiency and eventually avoid downtimes caused by tool wearing.
