Title: MACHINE HAVING A CLEANING DEVICE AN OPTICAL MEASURING DEVICE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a machine for processing workpieces, having at least three stations and having a movably mounted table (1), wherein at least one clamping apparatus (2), which, in particular, is driveable in a rotating fashion on the table, is arranged for clamping a workpiece and the clamped workpieces are transportable into the working regions of the stations by a movement of the table, wherein a first station (3) is configured as a processing station for processing a surface of the workpiece, in which a workpiece holder (4) that holds the workpiece for processing purposes is arranged, in particular in a manner that is driveable in a rotating fashion, wherein the workpiece holder (4) is deliverable to the workpiece by means of a delivery unit (5) and alignably mounted in relation to the workpiece holder by means of an alignment unit (6), characterized in that a second station (7) has a cleaning device (8) for removing coolant and/or lubricant remains from the processed surface and in that a third station (9) has a measuring device (10) for optically determining at least one surface property of the finished and cleaned surface of the workpiece, wherein the measuring device (10) is connected to an evaluation unit which evaluates the optically determined surface property and, on the basis of the evaluation, determines the measure by which the alignment of the workpiece holder (4) must be readjusted by means of the alignment unit (6) so that tolerance targets are observed.
