T-1296 Hi-Resolution 5-Axis Multi-Purpose Scan & Spindle Target

T-1296 Hi-Resolution 5-Axis Multi-Purpose Scan & Spindle Target

Description

Hamar Laser’s T-1296 5-Axis Target is a high-resolution version of our T-1295 5-Axis Multi-Purpose Target designed work with our L-702/L-702SP Spindle/Machine Tool Lasers.  It also supports all our L-730-740 scanning lasers when used in Scanning Mode to measure axes & surfaces using the L-730/740 laser planes.

The T-1296 features a high-accuracy PSD with a resolution of .00001 in. (0.00025 mm) for center (H&V) and .00004 in/ft. (0.003 mm/m) for angle (H&V).  It features a 10×10 mm PSD with ample measuring range for most machine tool applications.  Like the T-1295, the T-1296 has a 0.5 in. (12.7 mm) mounting stud to insert into a spindle collet or chuck.  The PSD is centered to the mounting stud to .0003 in. (0.008 mm) or better.

The T-1296 features 2 angular lens options that offer up to .00002 in/ft (0.002 mm/m) angular resolution for measuring pitch and yaw axis errors.  It communicates with a PC or PDA via Bluetooth with 100 ft. (30 m) of measuring range or a USB cable that also charges the target.

We also offer mounting accessories to use the T-1295 in many different applications.  The accessories include:

  • L-702RA Right-Angle Spindle Mount
  • T-242 Straightness Measuring Base
  • T-243 Flatness Measuring Base
  • T-1295-AO-6 6 in. (152.4 mm) Angular Lens

Applications

  • Flatness/straightness of surfaces.
  • Spindle alignments (center and angular) on ID/OD grinders, lathes, rotary dial machines and turning centers.
  • Straightness/flatness of linear axes or guideways on boring mills, gantries, lathes, machining centers, multiturn machines, VTLs

Features

  • High resolution:  .00001 in. (0.00025 mm) for center and .00004 in/ft. (0.003 mm/m) for angle with standard lens
  • Ample 2-axis measuring sensor with 10×10 mm PSD.
  • Two angular lens measuring options: 3 in and 6 in focal length providing up to .00002 in/ft. (0.002 mm/m) of angular measuring resolution.
  • 0.5 in. (12.7 mm) mounting stud for inserting into spindle collets or chucks.
  • The PSD sensor is centered to the mounting stud to .0003 in. (0.008 mm) or better.  The measuring plane of the sensor is optically projected to the measurement stud for improved accuracy.  The remaining centering error and other mounting errors are removed by NORMIN procedure in MultiTurn10 or other HLI software.
  • Offers 3 measurement modes:
    • Center Mode – 2-axis center measurement for use with the L-702SP’s through-beam.
    • Angular Mode – 2-axis angular measurement for use with the L-702SP’s through-beam.
    • Flatness (Scanning) Mode – single-axis (5th axis) flatness measurement for use with the L-702SP’s auto-rotating laser plane.
  • Bluetooth Class 1 radio for up to 100 feet (30 m) wireless communication.
  • The T-1296 Scanning Mode supports all our L-730/L-740 Scanning Lasers for measuring flatness/straightness using laser planes.
  • Accelerometer rotation axis (6th axis) helps to orient the PSD sensor axes to the alignment axes of the spindle.
  • Ambient background light correction for more accurate measurements.
