Cutting Tool Inspection Gauge Designed for Micro Tools

"Higher accuracy inspections with true 4K inspection capability, magnification to 400x and X-micron linear scales makes the new PG1000-400S-4K inspection gauge ideal for micro tools," said a company spokesperson. "More pixels per inch results in better image quality and higher accuracy inspections with this REACTION series gauge. Officially known as UHD (Ultra-High Definition), 4K encompasses visual resolution technology offering at least four times more pixels than conventional 1080 pixel HD resolution."

The PG1000-400S-4K comes complete with Euro-Tech's patented REACTION software. "This software has raised the bar in cutting tool inspection making both scale and edge detection inspections possible in real time," said the spokesperson. Make, save and recall inspection scenes for new tool inspections of a tool image using scales, screen, edge detection, comparisons or .dxf file overlays in multiple colors. Annotate the screen to make your own tool inspection document. Segmented scale calibrations on any PG 1000 sold as a REACTION series gauge can now be done over the entire working envelope of the microscope. "Digital low light inspection technology for inspecting cutting tools is now possible with the PG1000-400S-4K, PG 1000 Advance and the PG 1000 Basic REACTION series gauges," said the spokesperson. "We have even upgraded our hardware for better repeatability.

"The DREHplus analog 3-D tester features innovative, precise probing technology through a patented conical tip designed for measuring tools on lathes saving time and money. No expensive additional equipment is necessary plus the DREHplus is impervious to splash water and oil. The DREHplus is significantly slimmer with its patented in-line design."
