The Microset UNO Autofocus automatically focuses on a tool’s cutting edge so the operator can measure it quickly. This machine minimizes incorrect data inputs since it locates the edge with one touch. The UNO Autofocus includes motorized spindles; a system cabinet; and a 23", 10-point touch screen. Repeatability and spindle runout are ±2µm.

The Genior Modular VM-03 intelligent, module-based machine monitoring system provides predictive maintenance via vibration, gravity, and temperature monitoring; condition monitoring; dynamic collision and crash detection; and simple process monitoring. It can be integrated into machine tools, equipment, or robots.
Bearing failures are responsible for 85% of spindle damages, and 40% of bearing damages are due to collisions. Indications that there may be damages to the spindle can be recognized through reduced workpiece quality, increased bearing temperature, and vibrations caused by bearing fatigue and raceway damage. The VM-03 helps avoid these issues by detecting overload and potential crash, process monitoring to optimize cutting process parameters, and machine condition monitoring through predictive maintenance.
The VM-03 provides alarm output for acceleration in warnings, soft stops, or hard stops; a temperature warning; and a gravity value warning with alarms occurring within 5 second of an event, recording data of operational processes to reveal any anomalies.
