Meax Coaxiality

2-axis check of spindle/toolholder

Coaxiality is used to determine the direction of a sub-spindle or the toolholder’s axis of rotation relative to a main spindle.

The future of machine measurement

As ever-increasing demands are being placed on machine tools, we have arrived at the conclusion that an optimally functional machine forms the basis for better business. Modern machine tools must be maintain a high level of flexibility, a high degree of utilization and a minimum downtime which calls for the correct geometry in all the machine´s  movements.

So we created MEAX and started to sketch solutions for machine tool measurement that, in our opinion, are also self-evident that they should have been developed a long time ago.  By performing fast measurement, possessing a logical user interface, smart application and fewer complicated functions, we can       now build a future machine tool measurement.


Logical interface

MEAX Coaxiality  is equipped with Bluetooth, which  you use to connect to  your mobile unit (iOS or Android). This is easily achieved using the MEAX Coax App which,  with an easy-to-understand user interface, displays the position and pointing direction of the toolholder and the opposing spindle. The results are saved on your device, and can be shared in any way you wish from your file handling system, through  e-mail, etc.

The 2-axis angle sensor

MEAX Coaxiality has brought together new technology that generates precision down to 0,001 mm/m with a user interface in modern smartphones and tablet computers.  Within of a few minutes, MEAX Coaxiality will enable you to check whether it is coaxiality between the work head spindle and toolholder or opposing spindle. With the aid of a wireless connection to the smartphone or tablet, MEAX Coaxiality reads two  directions  in the same measurement.

Features Meax Coaxiality

16 mm shat  – Quick installation, no settings, no adjustment of lasers, no control of centering .
App-based  – Easy to get started! Use your phone!
Wireless  – Enable rotating the machine chuck during the measuring process. Doors can be closed when measuring.
2-axis sensors  – MEAX Coaxiality reads two angles in the same measurement.
Save and share  – The results are saved on your device, and can easily  be shared

MEAX Coaxiality work with free MEAX Coax App! This application is your companion for making high precision co-axial measurements for your machine tool, typically between two pin heads or between a spindle head and the tool holder. The application completely guides you through measurements and the evaluation process when you use the MEAX SM 201 and SR 201 high-precision transmitter / receiver sensors. This simplifies the heavy and long task of ensuring that the spindle head and tool are perfectly aligned, or to quickly check that the machine is still functional after an accident.
