Measure and compensate for tool offsets

1. Measure and compensate for tool offsets in the five directions ±X, ±Z, and Y

The tool offset value measurement and compensation in the five directions can effectively eliminate the error caused by manual tool setting and the problem of inefficiency. Regardless of the type of cutting tool (round, face, thread, grooving, boring or milling, drilling of a power tool on the turning center), all tool tip points or tools involved in cutting when turning or milling the workpiece contour The axis line must be adjusted or compensated so that it is exactly on the same theoretical point or axis of the workpiece coordinate system. For dynamic rotary tools, in addition to measuring and compensating the offset value in the tool length direction, it is also necessary to measure and compensate the offset value in the tool diameter direction (the tool offsets the two radius offsets of the axis line). ). Otherwise the machine cannot machine the correct size workpiece. In the machine tool without a tool setting tool, the offset value of each tool is a careful test cut for each tool. The measurement, calculation and compensation of the workpiece size (manual tool setting) can be obtained. Effortless, it will scrap the artifacts. When the tool is changed, this work will be resumed. Therefore, the tool setting is one of the longest work tasks for the machine tool.
