WALTER Advances Non-Contact Tool Measurement with Laser Contour Check

July 27, 2022 - WALTER, a brand of UNITED GRINDING,introduces Laser Contour Check, a new and innovative non-contact option to tactile measurement in tool grinding and eroding machinesThe new blue laser, paired with an intelligent measuring system,provides high-precision measurement of various tool parameters on cylindrical tools with diameters from one to 52 mm. Since it does not contact the surface, the Laser Contour Check avoids possible damage to cutting edges or measuring errors that can occur due to wear on the probe tip during tactile measurements. Measurements are made directly in the analog laser beam on the entire tool contournot just at specific points as with the tactile or digital measuring method. Deviations can thus be compensated for directly in the process. A short measuring time, including cleaning of approximately 16 seconds (depending on the tool type) for diameter measurement, ensures increased productivity. Optimized program sequences for cleaning and compensation can be programmed and adapted by the operator. The measuring system is integrated directly into the working area of the machine and moves into position when required. The blue laser beam used offers improved accuracy compared to the conventional red laser, as blue lasers have a shorter wavelength, thus reducing diffraction effects and optimizing the laser beam geometry.

 

Gainesville, GA (June 22, 2022) For many years, The Harris Products Group has provided financial support for a non-profit just down the street from its Gainesville, Georgia, facility. The organization, Sisu, brings educational, therapeutic, nursing and support services to children with special needs in 16 counties in northeast Georgia. Sisu’s integrated learning environment allows children from 6 weeks to 6 years with special needs to learn and interact alongside their typically developing peers.

This spring, Harris donated $25,000, bringing its total support over the years to more than $285,000. These donations have helped build new classrooms, improved playgrounds and assisted with Sisu’s administrative costs. 

“At Harris, we’re proud to continue our annual charity contribution to Sisu, our friend and neighbor,” said Melissa Nolan, Human Resources Manager at Harris.Over the years, many of our employees have had children enrolled at Sisu and we are happy to be able to support them both financially and as a good neighbor.

Sisu is a Finnish concept that relates to inner determination, persistence, grit, bravery, resilience, hardiness and indomitable spirit. This is the mindset that Sisu encourages to help these children reach beyond perceived capabilities and take action against all odds.

More information about Sisu can be found at mysisu.org.
