Tool cleaning and laser marking in the robot loader
The use of new modules for cleaning and laser marking of tools in the robot loader further increases flexibility during manufacture and final inspection. The user saves valuable time by automatically loading the measuring machine with the robot loader and concurrently cleaning and laser marking the tools outside of the measuring area.
A clean tool is essential for a valid measurement of tools. Therefore, the tools are cleaned before measurement in an ultrasonic bath, which is integrated in the robot cell and separate from the measuring area. Tools are subsequently dried in the air stream, which can be adapted individually depending on the tool length.
After cleaning and measuring the tool, the high-quality marking of the tool can then be carried out in the laser marking module, also integrated in the robot cell and separate from the measuring area without any penetration. Marking can be made on the shaft and/or tool end face with static or dynamic data. For complete flexibility, the robot loader for the HELICHECK PLUS and HELICHECK PRO measuring machines can be specified with an individual preparation for these two modules - they can then be individually retrofitted if required.
