Measurement of tools

The milling machine needs to know, where a tool is ending (tool point) and what the dimensions are. For this purpose the tools where measured when inserted in a machine. Below you can see:

  • The choose of the right fixation and grinding attachment
  • The mounting of the tool and the device into the instrument
  • The optical measurement of the tool point from a graver and
  • The optical measurement of a milling tool
