The NC3 offers high repeatability, low air consumption and a rapid tool-breakage detection cycle. System features • Compact design 135 mm x 26 mm x 77 mm. • Repeatability ±0.15 and#956;m (±6 and#956;in) 2and#963;. • Measurement of tools of Ø0.2 mm and larger. Broken tool detection of tools as small as Ø0.1 mm. • Sealed to IPX8 with air on and designed for machine tool environment. • Measurement anywhere along the beam. • Proven MicroHole™ technology - no moving parts. • Single conduit exit from product - electrical and pneumatic cables enter via single conduit. • Measure tool length and diameter at normal spindle cutting speeds. • Drip rejection mode - rejects random drops of coolant falling through the beam. • Simplifies integration of dual probe systems.
