Hardware module GL.distance

Hardwaremodul GL.distance

The GL.distance module is available for the highest precision requirements in the field of micro drilling and precision cutting. A confocal chromatic sensor measures the distance to the component before machining. Deviations and tolerances of the component surface can thus be recorded and corrected before machining.

In addition, interfering contours at the processing position are recorded and output.
