Meclab Tools T40

Bench-top Laser Micrometer

MECLAB.T40 is a high precision laser instrument for quick and simple diameter measurements of hard metal blanks and full carbide cutting tools with odd or even edges.  It provides offline measurement of diameter, run-out, roundness, min-max and cutting diameters for fluted tools, blanks and bits.

It’s ideal for the offline checking of:-

  • Drill bits
  • End mills
  • Reamers
  • Cutting tools

In addition it can be also used to check the diameter, ovality and straightness of:-

  • Hard metal blanks
  • Ground pins or cylinders

This bench top laser micrometer doesn’t require a PR. That makes it ideal for use in the workshop. It can be placed close to the machine to generate accurate diameter measurements quickly and simply. It is also very cost-effective, which makes it an attractive diameter measurement option for smaller operations.

Ease of use and high repeatability

The MECLAB.T40 bench top laser micrometer uses a guided process, with the operator positioning the part at the start position and then choosing manual or automatic rotation. The laser scans at the rate of 15000 samples per second while the software provides accurate and repeatable measurements of cutting diameters and run out for odd and even fluted parts.

Accurate and flexible it can be used as a bench top flexible gauge across many shapes and sizes of pieces including hard metal tools and machined parts.

There are many features to the MECLAB.T40 benchtop laser micrometer for diameter measurement.

Using the tool dedicated menu, it is possible to check full carbide tools with ODD or EVEN cutting edges. The measurement mode must be On-Command Continuous and the part must be rotated (manually or automatically) to detect the max and min positions of the Bottom and Top edges. In this way the software measures the tool diameter DMAX (EVEN edges only), the Effective Cutting Diameter DCUT and the RUNOUT.
The RUNOUT is calculated as the maximum swing of the peak position of all the cutting edges during

  • Multiple language pop-up menus for easy set-up and programming
  • Display millimetres or inches
  • Automatic seeking of the “zero point”
  • Reading the slide position
  • Quick change over of the cutting edge number
  • Display of 3 measured variables
  • Quick tolerance check and alarm outputs
  • 1000 parts library for quick programming
  • I/O Lines for Easy Interfacing and start/stop input for a foot switch
  • Connection to a PC and easy Excel interface

Fast measurements of the following products:

  • Drill bits
  • End mills
  • Reamers
  • Cutting tools
  • Hard metal blanks
  • Ground pins or cylinders

DIA = Average Diameter
DDIA = Deviation of the average diameter
CEN = Average position of the centre
DCEN = Deviation of the average position of the centre
POS = Linear encoder position
T-AM Estimated ambient temperature
MIN-D = Minimum Diameter
MAX-D = Maximum Diameter
DMIN-D = Deviation of the minimum diameter
DMAX-D = Deviation of the maximum diameter
RNG-C = Range of the centre position
MIN-C = Minimum centre position
MAX-C = Maximum centre position
DMIN-C = Deviation of the minimum centre position
DMAX-C = Deviation of the maximum centre position
