At the Farnborough Air Show Blum Novotest will demonstrate the benefits of its Tool Monitor Adaptive Control (TMAC) system, which has been used by aerospace OEMs to eliminate broken cutting tools and the resultant damage or scrapping of components.

The company will also highlight its TC76-N Digilog touch probe designed for tool and workpiece measurement in turning machines; also on display will be the TC50 and TC52 workpiece touch probes.

In addition, Blum Novotest will showcase its Lasercontrol NT-H3D tool-setting system and the Z-series of probes, including the Z-Pico.

Key product specifications

  • TMAC reduces the high cost of replacement tools, lost production and rejected parts by measuring tool wear in real time
