The EdgeMaster is an optical 3D measurement device for automatic cutting edge measurement. Edges are measured regardless of type, size, material or surface finish of the tool. Users measure radii > 2 µm as well as rake, wedge and clearance angle of cutting edges. Different types, including both waterfall and trumpet, are precisely measured. The robust technology of Focus Variation delivers stable and traceable measurements also in production.
The EdgeMaster delivers fully automatic measurements and stable results even with external vibration and external light. The system provides user friendly operation with high measurement speed. High vertical resolution enables chipping measurement in addition to traceable roughness measurements on the rake face of edges. An intelligent illumination technology enables optimized illumination of surfaces with short exposure times, leading to fast measurements.
Users benefit from high resolution measurements during the whole manufacturing process. The EdgeMaster is used to measure the green part of a tool as well as the highly polished component in its final stage. Typically, the measurement system is used to measure inserts, drills, milling cutters etc. Advanced visualization including registered colour information allows transparent and provable quality assurance.
