Camera systems

The camera systems from HEIDENHAIN enable the in-process monitoring of the tool and work envelope, permitting reliable detection of incorrect workpieces, missing or incorrect machining operations, missing tools, worn tools, and tools lying in the work envelope.

Camera-based tool inspection
The VT 121, combined with the VTC software, enables automated and time-saving in-process tool inspection within the machine. During unattended shifts, the tool condition and wear can be monitored and documented for every cutting edge and from different perspectives.

Dependable workspace monitoring
The VS 101 camera system, along with the Visual Setup Control option, can automatically monitor the clamping and machining situation within the machine's work envelope, reliably detecting omitted machining operations, incorrect workpieces, and missing workholding fixtures.
