Tool Measuring Applications

Manufacturers around the world depend on extremely precise metalcutting tools – which means the suppliers of those tools must meet and surpass even higher standards. That’s why tooling OEMs rely on UNITED GRINDING for world-class measurement equipment designed specifically for the cutting tool industry.

Designed to meet the exacting standards of Germany’s national metrology institute, the Physikalisch-Technischen Bundesanstalt, the WALTER HELICHECK series of optical measuring machines can handle today’s most complex rotationally symmetrical tools. These machines are certified for sub-micron accuracy and >1.5 µm repeat accuracy – and additional fourth CNC axes and laser sensors also allow for even greater precision along with full 3D scans with the most advanced HELICHECK technology. WALTER also offers manual measuring machines, including HELISET for tracking grinding wheel shape and HELISET PLUS for measuring complex tools prior to erosion processes.
