Product description:

Broken tool detection system "WBA-neu"


This system is used in fully automated production processes on machining centers.

Especially for the detection of

- broken tools

- missing tools


The unit is preferably used on machining centers with vertical tool chains, containing a wide variety of tools to be observed.

The measurable tool length is dependent on the scanning arm used and accounts 0 to 650mm fo the 660mm scanning-arm and 0 to 900mm for the 900mm scanning-arm.

The position of the scanning device in relation to the tool axis as well as the scanning angle are fixed by the design of the machine.

The WBA-neu compromises the scanning device and the control electronics, which is installed in the control cabinet.


In a so-called reference sequence, the correlation between the measured angle and the equivalent distance is calculated by the control electronics. After that initial procedure subsequent measurements can take place.
