Distometer- a universal electronic measuring instrument for machines
Magazine Profile :
Distometer- The universal electronic measuring and adjusting instrument with microprocessor and digital display.
Any high quality machine can only deliver good results if the tools are mounted & set properly. Otherwise it is very difficult to achieve fine finish & uniform results from any good machine with good tooling. Mostly the tools & cutter blocks are multi tip and it is very important to set all the tips at same position. If they are not then the only tip which protrudes more will be cutting & all other tips will just rotate. By this way the tip will become blunt very fast as it will have the highest load. This may even cause imbalance which is very bad for the bearings. To make this operation very easy & accurate Aigner have devised DISTOMETER.
The Aigner DISTOMETER offers a wide application range; it provides fast and accurate measuring of : The set height and depth of tools The thickness of work piece, as well as The depth of slits and profiles recesses in work pieces.
The distometer consists of-
A- This is a button to switch on the instrument. The same button is used for zero setting of the display. This should be used as & when needed. The switch has an Automatic switch off function, in order to save the battery life.
B- It is a Retracted button to set the system of units in mm / inch.
C- Knurled wheel is provided to shift the caliper to desired position.
D- This is hardened- ground Measuring tracer with end play to measure with upper and lower surface without zero resetting. It is calibrated accordingly to save the time.
E- It is Penetrating Gauge. This is made of special steel with heat treatment to guarantee accuracy & long life.
F- Outside caliper to measure thickness. This is used for the measurement of the thickness of the board, wooden products etc.
G- One-side support through large bearing surface to assure firm contact. It is also provided with two fixing magnets to position firmly to the machine base.
An attached picture shows fast & easy shifting of the caliper to various positions. The accurate positioning & measurement assures fine joinery and machining. This is turn assures high value addition to the products. This can also be used for accurate measurement of the wooden sections used in furniture assembly.
