Pre-setting device with large measurement range for first-time users
18 Sept 2020
Compact, reliable and cost-effective, these are the characteristics of the new pre-setting device GARANT VG Basic from the Hoffmann Group. This robust pre-setting device comes with an impressive range of basic functions for the lower price segment that will enable the user to measure cutting tools quickly and accurately. In addition, the GARANT VG Basic features fully-fledged electronic measuring equipment with a digital camera and a measurement range of up to 400 millimetres on two axes. A 10-inch touch screen, three USB ports and an attractive design add the finishing touches to the product. What’s more, the user can also opt to include a label printer in the order, which will enable him to print the measuring results onto an adhesive label before sticking the label onto the tool – thereby guaranteeing a greater degree of transparency.
On the new GARANT VG Basic pre-setting device, both the X and Z axes can be moved by up to 400 millimetres using a pneumatic quick adjustment device. This requires a compressed air supply of at least five bar. When an additional fine adjustment is made, the two axes can be positioned accurately enough that the exact tool dimensions can be determined using the robust measuring system and the high-performance CMOS colour camera with 17x magnification. The device is very easy to operate, as an intuitively designed menu guides the user unerringly through the programme. As such, the GARANT VG Basic constitutes a robust piece of basic equipment for use at the machine or production island.
The smart and well manufactured pre-setting device rests on height-adjustable feet, which support a sturdy base body made of high-strength aluminium and a high-quality sheet metal housing. The software is available in all common language versions. The user can choose to have the measuring result displayed in either millimetres or inches. The product is supplied with a cutting edge cleaner, SK 50 needle bearing cone, a spiral compressed air hose and a ¼-inch coupling connector. In addition to the label printer, the optional accessories include a subframe cupboard, a calibration mandrel, a spindle clamp and a variety of reducers.
