3-D Analysis of Tools and Parts

The WALTER HELICHECK 3-D non-contact CNC measuring machine from UNITED GRINDING combines a transmitted light camera and laser sensor to scan then digitize cutting tools and production parts, creating 3-D models that users can save, process, analyze and measure.

The machine's 3-D Tool Analyzer software allows users to lay vertical, horizontal and freely selectable cutting planes at any position on the 3-D model. From there, the software automatically analyzes the planes and provides exact measurements of the model's parameters such as core diameter, rake angles and spiral pitch. Because the measurements are from the 3-D model, users can work offline on a separate station.

The HELICHECK 3-D machine also applies WALTER's new 3-D Matcher software that allows users to overlay two 3-D models within a graphical user interface and perform a color-coded comparison. After the match of both models, the user receives an instant evaluation of the quality of the products and any deviations from the desired values.
