Fast and Easy Measurement of CNC Machine Tools

SP ProTwist by Status Pro, offered exclusively in North America by CENTRIC International, is designed to simplify the process of installing, moving and realigning CNC machine tools. "This highly precise and easy to use system is an essential part of any quality management process, offering precision measurements down to 1 µm (0.2 arc sec)," said a company spokesperson.

Consisting of two µLevel Spirit Levels, this system works using Bluetooth technology to communicate to the Android-based smartphone or to a Windows-based PC to provide fast and efficient measurement of straightness and parallelism. It can also provide simultaneous measurement of pitch and roll, as well as differential measurement.

This system can be used as a stand-alone instrument, or in conjunction with the company's advanced software that guides the user through each step and then documents the results. Operators can use each µLevel independently or use them together whereby one unit serves as a continuous reference.

The Smartphone includes a Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen for scratch-resistance performance. It can be used with or without a SIM card.

The SP ProTwist system comes with Proline Software for linear guide alignment. This software allows for professional analysis and evaluation, producing easy-to-read graphics that can be output at the touch of a button in PDF format. Reports can also be exported in .csv format for more detailed analysis.

When used in combination with a laser distance meter (D140), the system works fully automatically. Just start the measurement and stop at a certain position. The values are captured and the 3D chart is updated with every new measurement.
