M&H-Laser tool setters

M&H-Laser tool setters


 The Laser Tool Setter 35.60-LTS is a high-end system for
dynamic, non-contact tool measurement allowing automatic
checks for tool wear or breakage. A focussed laser provides
accurate measurement on any tool geometry for tools as small
as 0.008mm (0.0003"). Integrated cleaning jets creating a supersonic
airstream clean the tool's cutting edge during measurement ensuring
reliable results even in harsh environments. And durable stainless
steel construction and sophisticated laser technology guarantee
dependable results with the utmost precision in any production
scenario. Simple mounting, rapid alignment, and easy maintenance
ensure that the tool setter is always ready to use when you need it.



Precision and process reliability

  • Precision measurements regardless of geometry and tool dimensions
  • Uncertainty in measurement due to varying thermal expansion of materials is ruled out
  • Precision measurements for tools larger than 0.008 mm (0.0003'')
  • Supersonic air jets significantly reduce measurement errors from dirt on the tool
  • Software algorithms to eliminate the effects of coolant drops
  • No interference from ambient lights

Sturdy design

  • Compact, stainless steel housing
  • Laser optics protected using motor-operated shutter unit
  • Air curtain prevents dirt particles enteringthe device
  • Measurement system sealed according to IP68 standard
  • Simple setup Simple mounting and setup without special pneumatic unit
  • No special, accurate alignment of the laser unit required
  • Simple orientation and mechanical definition of the focal point
  • No external activation of the shutter unit and air curtain

Operation suitable for the workshop

  • Simple and reliable calibration and set-upof the laser unitMaintenance of the laser optics without tools, removable shutter unit
  • Easy to regulate, accessible air curtain
  • Measurement of very short tools possible  

Applications and measuring routines

  • Dynamic, precision measurement of length and diameter for almost any tool from 0.008 mm (0.0003")
  • Measurement of the cutting edge geometry at nominal speed
  • Length compensation of dynamic changes in tool position
  • Correction of tool length in case of thermal change and thermal drift of the spindle or machine axes
  • Diameter compensation for dynamic changes in the rotational diameter of a tool
  • Detection and compensation of tool wear
  • Monitoring of run-out, tool change and clamping errors
  • Tool breakage detection
