New STP-35 Basic and STP-35 EzVision Tool Presetting Systems Satisfy Longer Tool Lengths

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL - BIG KAISER Precision Tooling Inc. introduces the new STP-35 Basic and STP-35 EzVision System. The system matches the superior accuracy and T.I.R. of the STP-34, and has an extended z-axis height to accommodate tools up to 20 inches in length. The system has display resolution of .001mm (.00004”) for added precision.

The EzVision system's quick gage capability will measure any tool. It manages and displays tooling and cutting edges on the same monitor as the Speroni PC-based EzVision control. The system features one-micron Heidenhein glass scales. Its thermo-balanced and artificially aged pearlitic cast iron structure ensures that the equipment is fully isostatic and will not deform or distort over time or temperature change - a fundamental requirement in providing long-term linear accuracy and repeatability.

Digital tool sensing removes the potential for error inherent in manual measurement systems. They system does not rely on the operator's sight and judgment to focus and align tools within its optics. It assures reproducibility of precision settings, no matter which operator uses the instrument.

After inserting the tooling in the STP-35 EzVision's spindle, the operator sets maximum diameter by reading simple digital values and following color codes on a personal computer monitor. Obtaining measurement values is as easy as aligning the tool within the field of view or using one of the custom measurement macros. The computer replaces the digital readout used on many other types of presetters, so the operator does not have to learn to operate two sets of controls - both digital readout and computer monitor.

The EzVision control features a centering indicator box that is ideal for presetting angular cuts, as in chamfering. It may also be used to calculate nose radii and angles. Episcopy, one of the STP-35's most popular options, provides an easy way to detect defects or deformities by illuminating and magnifying the cutting edge.

As with all offline tool presetters, the new STP-35 optimizes tool resources by reducing tool set-up time and improving machining production time, while also enhancing the production of quality components.
