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.
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.
