For measuring wheels we’ve partnered with WALTER to offer the Heliset. It has everything you need:

  • Easy to use interface
    • Visually guides through each measurement — No programming needed
    • Dynamic cross-hair automatically finds the edge
  • Repeatable accuracy within 2 µm (0.00008”)
    • Progressive scan Sony® CCD camera (60 fps) with telecentric objective (Marcel Aubert® optics)
    • Magnification ~45x with 1 µm (0.00004”) resolution
    • Digital zoom 90x and 120x
    • Heidenhain® glass scales in the X and Z axes
    • Precision ground ISO 50 spindle with integrated calibration edge—Spindle runout accuracy ≤2 µm (0.00008”)
    • Automatic calibration routine
    • Fine (1 µm) adjustment of the X and Z axes
  • Easy data export to WALTER, ANCA, & Rollomatic software
  • Cutting edge and tool profile measuring capability—Adjustable light intensity for edge inspection
  • Shop floor durability with a two year warranty
    • Aged pearlitic cast iron construction for the best thermal stability (550 lbs)
      80 lb tower secured on three ground surfaces for consistent straightness (no need for software compensation to correct for leaning of the tower)
    • Schneeberger® linear guideways with recirculating ball bearings under and between both shoes on each rail —The largest & toughest ball bearing contact surface in its class, guaranteeing the highest precision and repeatability along the entire measuring range
  • Comes with a convenient storage cabinet
  • Economical investment

If you manufacture or sharpen tooling with brazed inserts, the Heliset Plus can save hours in setup. It has an A-axis encoder and specialized software for PCD woodworking tools, in addition to all the features and benefits of the Heliset:

  • Measures the position, length, and angle of each insert, saving about two hours per tool (for typical PCD woodworking tools with multiple inserts)
    • Eliminates the need to manually document insert position, saving about 40 minutes per tool
    • Eliminates the need to input the start and end points of each insert, saving about 20 minutes per tool
    • Speeds and improves the erosion machine’s probing routine (e.g. eliminating the need to detect the insert angle), saving about 20 minutes per tool
    • Speeds the programming of the WALTER Helicheck for final tool inspection by about 40 minutes per tool
  • Easy user interface
    • Back light camera with episcope for perfect position detection
    • Chip breaker and end face blade selection
    • Operator can choose which inserts to measure in any order
    • Measuring point selection via touch screen
    • Detection and warning of already measured blades
    • Screenshots of already measured teeth
  • Helpful data output
    • PDF export of measuring results
    • Integrated post-processor with XML export to the WALTER erosion machine for input into WALTER Window Mode (WWM) P51
    • XML export to the WALTER Helicheck for input into WALTER Quick Check Modular (QCM)
