Vision system: Automated detection of coolant holes

The RoboMate Vision System detects internal coolant holes on drills that deliver coolant directly to the tip of the drill. The RoboMate Vision System uses the robot to place the drill under the camera before loading it into the machine. The camera ensures it is loaded into the collet in the correct orientation for flute grinding. This is a faster option than using touch probe digitising of coolant holes.
REDUCES OVERALL MANUFACTURING TIME
By integrating the Vision System onto RoboMate inspection and coolant hole location is determined outside of the grinding process.
NON-CONTACT MEANS NO TOOL DAMAGE
As the Vision System doesn’t come in contact with tools it can’t damage them.
LOCATE COOLANT HOLES IN 10 SECONDS
The camera can capture an image and locate coolant holes in less than 10 seconds and caters for different drill point angles. The camera can be easily adjusted for focus and brightness based on the drill type and geometry.
