Features and Benefits
On-Machine Accuracy and Repeatability
The DGM360 precision diameter measurement gage is designed to measure large diameter parts with better than .001″ (25.4 µm) system accuracy while still on a lathe, grinder or other machine center with repeatability of .0005″ (12.7 µm).
As with any distance measuring device, accuracy is directly affected by variations in the surrounding temperature. That’s why we offer an optional thermal sensor that allows you to enter the room and part temperature. The DMG’s software then calculates the compensation factor for temperature changes.
Note: To maintain accuracy the maximum machine speed is 60 surface ft/min
The versatility and portability designed into the DMG360 means it doesn’t have to be dedicated to only one machine in your shop. Common machine tool receiver mount options with alignment adjusters are available so the wheel assembly can be used in a variety of machines. These include Aloris, C5 Capto and other custom tool holders.
Easy to Learn – Easy to Use
For easy alignment to the part, adjusters are built into the wheel body. And there’s a visible reference guide for setting the proper amount of pressure to preload the measurement wheel. Proximity sensors trigger measurements and there are LED indicators in the sensor to assist with trigger alignment.
The compact digital display unit includes a touch pad interface and comes with ABTech’s measurement software. That means there is no programming required. Just turn it on and go. We’ve even put a handle on the display unit to make it easy to move around the shop floor.
