UNO Series Presetter

August 01, 2015

Where the UNO series is concerned DMG MORI Microset relies on proven technology in tool presetting plus consistent further development. So the latest models combine optimum ergonomics with extensive technical equipment. "The diverse options ensure the UNO series a level of individualisation that is unmatched in this price category", explains Lothar Sommer, Managing Director of DMG MORI Microset GmbH.

In addition to a touch display, RFID chip system and post processors for all standard controls the range of potential equipment now also includes completely new options such as the autofocus and automatic drive. The UNO autofocus differs from the manual UNO in that it automatically focuses the cutting edge to be measured. This option proves enormously time-saving in particular for tools with several cutting edges around the circumference. In addition the UNO automatic drive positions the cutting edges automatically. No special knowledge is required of the user because the machine carries out fully automatic measurement of complex tools with several cutting edges and steps at the press of a button. In other words, the UNO automatic drive constitutes an additional worker in tool presetting. The same manual operation as in the standard version is also possible with both equipment configurations if needed. The UNO autofocus and UNO automatic drive from DMG MORI Microset come with a comfort system cabinet and a 22" touch display in their standard versions.

The models of the UNO series are available in two sizes. The UNO 20|40 kicks off with a 400-mm traverse path in the Z-axis while the UNO 20|70 has a travel of 700mm. Both versions are available as tabletop devices with a 19" screen. There is a 22" or 23" touch display available as an option as well as the comfort system cabinet. Unique here is the possibility of measuring tools with diameters up to 100mm with the snap gauge principle even with the standard version thanks to a traverse path of +200mm to -50mm in the X-axis. And, of course, all conventional tool interfaces such as HSK, Capto, VDI, KM or BMT can be realised by adapting the spindle in addition to the SK 50 that comes with the standard version.

Lothar Sommer goes on to explain the solid basis of the UNO tool presetting devices: "You can only get this class of FEM-optimised and thermally stable grey cast iron construction from DMG MORI." The inherently rigid bed with 3-point support not only ensures safe footing but highest flexibility in the workshop as well thanks to simple setup. The integrated infinite fine adjustment in both axes and the segment incident light for visual control of the cutting edge are also outstanding features included in the standard version. The UNO "sets new standards in the entry class of tool presetting", claims Lothar Sommer. "The release-by-touch operation in particular and the large touch display for even better handling of the MICROVISION software make work so much easier." The high-performance software enables simple and operator-independent measuring in all equipment configurations.

Lothar Sommer highlights the benefits of the latest generation of this software: "MICROVISION offers intuitive operation for the user and with its helpful functions quickly achieves highly accurate measuring results. Accuracy is aided by a focusing window, which enables exact positioning even for highly complex tools.

A thermal label printer, vacuum clamping, a second camera for setting the centre of rotation and a multitude of other options round off the latest UNO series.
