The m&h LS-R-4.8 is a wireless laser scanner for machine tools. Data is transmitted via radio to the machine control and measuring software, which is why the sensor can be changed in and out of the tool changer without any manual steps.
Accurate machine tool measurement typically involves capturing data for a limited number of points on a part. With a metrology-grade laser scanner integrated into the machine tool, users can quickly capture and analyse a complete, data-rich image of a part and act to address flaws while the part is still clamped. The results bring new levels of speed, precision and flexibility to machine tool inspection, while minimising the need for external measurement devices.
Equipped with a blue line laser, the m&h LS-R-4.8 quickly and precisely captures data equally well on shiny or dark surfaces. The design is optimised for the harsh environment in machine tools and the large field of view is ideal to capture all relevant areas of a clamped part.
