How does a haimer work?

HAIMER 3D-Sensors are a 3-axis edge finder and measurement tool all in one, ideal for use on manual or CNC machining centers. They are clamped into a tool holder or inserted directly into the machine spindle and make it possible to locate work piece surfaces in X, Y and Z.

What are 3D sensors?

It is a depth-sensing technology that augments camera capabilities for facial and object recognition. 3D sensing technology mimics the human visual system using optical technology, which facilitates the emergence and integration of augmented reality, AI (Artificial Intelligence), and the Internet of Things (IoT).

What is Edge Finder?

Edge finders, sometimes also defined as wigglers or wobblers, are simple tools used to locate the edges of a workpiece or the center of a hole. They are also by far the most commonly used device to locate Part Zero.

What is a haimer gauge?

The HAIMER 3D-Sensors are very precise and wide-ranging measurement devices for milling and EDM machines (isolated probe tip). They are clamped into a tool holder and inserted into a milling spindle and make it possible to position the spindle axis exactly on the edges of the workpiece.

How do 3D sensors work?

How does it work? There are two main technologies that power 3D sensing applications: Time of Flight and Structured Light Illumination (SLI). The light pattern bends to match the inconsistencies in the surface of that object. A camera with an infrared filter observes the distortion of that pattern.

What company produces 3D sensors?

Lumentum has been at the forefront of this photonics technology for over 30 years. It’s a leading global 3D-sensing component manufacturer that can scale from producing thousands to millions of devices, for fluctuating consumer and industrial markets.

How accurate is Edge Finder?

This style of edge finder is considered to be the most accurate, and its accuracy can be further improved through the use of a collet. In proper setups, a repeatability of 0.0002 in (0.0051 mm) or better can be obtained.
