The newly developed auto-measure function on the Hathor SIX Presetter introduces a feature that is unique on this type of machine.
When “auto-measure” is performed, the spindle rotates at a speed that is calculated based on the peripheral diameter of the tool to ensure the cutting edge is captured with the highest level of accuracy.
In addition to this, as the highest point of each individual cutting edge is approached, the software calculates the deceleration and acceleration of the spindle to ensure absolutely precise measurement of each and every cutting edge is achieved. This is unlike other machines in the marketplace that use one constant rotational speed based on a set tool diameter, by instead linking the auto-measure function of the Presetter to the diameter of the tool being measured.
Automatic measure function in conjunction with a 15” TFT touch screen mounted horizontally for easy viewing.
Newly developed auto-measure function ensuring the cutting edge is captured with the highest level of accuracy.
Solid granite column and base to guarantee and maintain maximum accuracy.
Main Frame & Construction
Designed to be floor mounted with a machine structure in stainless steel to provide increased stiffness with higher accuracy and rigidity. Solid granite column and base to guarantee and maintain maximum accuracy.
A wide variety of tools can be pre-set utilizing interchangeable spindle cartridges rather than adaptors. This reduces the number of interface connections delivering accuracy across all spindle types.
Featuring an automatic measure function in conjunction with a 15” TFT touch screen mounted horizontally for easy viewing. The split-screen displays images of the current tool whilst allowing access to the current software functions.
Measuring range: Diameter max 400 mm (radius 200 mm); height max 600 mm.
Motor providing automatic rotation of the spindle with pneumatic engagement of the motion transmission providing zero backlash (patented system).
C Axis display for both spindle body and spindle-holder.
Standard mechanical/electronic and optical equipment:
- Base and column made of natural granite to guarantee the maximum accuracy: linearity max Error 2 μm/Mt – certification with Taylor Hobson res.1 μm/Mt. electronic millesimal level. ELBO CONTROLLI NIKKEN Linear Transducers in optical glass type AS 371 certified HP laser: Axes resolution: X= 1 μm, Z= 1 μm.
- Machine structure in stainless steel offering high mechanical strength and long life, floor mounted with self-levelling supports in non-deformable steel.
- ISO / BT / HSK / VDI... etc. Interchangeable rotating spindle-holder (to be specified) max run-out error < 2 μm. Spindle Index in four angular positions: 0°-90°-180°-270°.
- Motor providing automatic rotation of the spindle with pneumatic engagement of the motion transmission providing zero backlash.
- Spindle-holder Identification System (SP-ID) with NFC technology to automatically identify the spindle-holder after each replacement.
- Linear slideways: 2 for X axis slideways and 1 for Z axis slideway.
- Double re-circulating ball bearing slides (four in total), lubricated for life. Universal electro-mechanical tool clamping (ISO only).
- Pneumatic-mechanic braking of the spindle-holder rotation.
- Constant load Archimedean spiral spring (as opposed to a mass counter-balance system).
