MicroKom BluFlex

October 13, 2012

The KOMET GROUP has equipped its fine adjustment head MicroKom BluFlex with modern wireless networking to make setting work easier for machine users. By using a wireless connection via Bluetooth technology, the KOMET GROUP has managed to disconnect the display of the fine adjustment head MicroKom from the tool head. This has made the tool less sensitive in application and improved its concentricity properties. There is a major benefit for the user, who can now attach the display by magnet anywhere on the machine, so that it is in his field of view and easy to read.

A specially designed adjustment key with integrated Bluetooth interface is used to adjust the tool system. As soon as the user uses this on the fine adjustment head, the wireless connection is activated and the current adjustment value appears clearly legible on the screen. The display is also illuminated to make readout easier even in difficult lighting conditions. Display and adjustment key can be used with any MicroKom BluFlex which leads to a cost saving where several fine adjustment heads are used. Both components use commercially available batteries or rechargeable batteries which can be replaced easily.
