Users of ageing digital readout systems on milling, turning and grinding machines can now trade in on their old DROs and get a GBP200 discount on the Acu-Rite VUE two-/three-axis DRO system.

Available for a limited period, the deal covers the trade in of any DRO brand and is available exclusively from the UK Acu-Rite distributor network.

VUE is an entry-level DRO that can optimise the performance and operation of manual machines.

Displaying full text on an LCD display, the system is available as a ready-to-use package with high-end SENC 150 precision glass linear encoders.

VUE’s standard functionality includes job clock, feed rate display, absolute/incremental, near-zero warning, 16 tool offsets/diameters, preset and zero reset, trigonometry calculator and instant inch/mm conversion, in addition to a content-sensitive help function.

Specific functions for milling include graphically supported bolt-hole pattern calculations (full and partial circles/linear patterns) and centreline calculation, while for turning the system also features ‘lock axis’ functionality (establish tool offsets under load), and instant radius and diameter compensation.

Linear and non-linear error compensation can be configured up to +/-9.999ppm.

As well as being supplied complete with all appropriate armoured cabling, VUE also incorporates Acu-Rite’s SENC 150 precision glass scale technology.

Based on the use of reflective light for measurement, the highly integrated scanning sensor provides high contamination resistance.

Roller bearing technology reduces backlash and prolongs the life of the scale.

SENC 150 is available in lengths of 50mm to 3.04m and features the Position-Trac functionality that allows operators to accurately and quickly re-establish workpiece zero from any position after a power interruption.
