1. Precisely calibrated tools
Precisely calibrated tools form the basis for precise chamfers. There is often the misconception that it is sufficient to collect data and calibrate the tools based on the data alone, either mechanically or by manually entering the corresponding correction values into the machine control. However with this procedure, the angular deviation of the burner can hardly be brought under the 0.5 mm limit – not to mention the high costs which are obtained in the purely mechanical setting.
At this point, the new rotator MicroStep® R5 is set up. The entire calibration process runs completely automated and eliminates deviations in hundredths of a millimetre. By independently -tensioning the torch holder of the bevel cutting head it is ensured that the deviation even after burner collision is not greater than 0.5 mm.
