VT 121

Vision system for tool inspection

  • Tool inspection beyond tool life
  • Optimization of cutting parameters
  • Optimization of NC programs
  • Tool breakage monitoring
  • Tool inspection before critical machining steps

Rugged and compact design

Thanks to its IP68 protection rating and protective lenses, the VT 121 vision system is a rugged and compact aid for monitoring tools of any size within the work envelope.

Automated inspection

In conjunction with TNC 640 cycles, the vision system automatically takes images of the tool during machining, including during unattended production. Cycles allow you to define the image views to be taken after tool cleaning.

Tool inspection on the control

Save time during tool inspection without removing the tool from the machine or tool magazine. Instead, simply perform your inspection on the control. Software options let you perform inspections at a later time, even to some extent offline.

Panoramic or close-up images

The camera takes close-up images of each tooth as well as detailed panoramic images of the entire tool circumference. The lighting angle can be varied so that the individual teeth are optimally illuminated. Tools can also be imaged from below.
