Title (EN) AN APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ASSESSING THE BEAM PROFILE OF A NON-CONTACT TOOL SETTING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ D'ÉVALUATION DU PROFIL DE FAISCEAU D'UN APPAREIL DE RÉGLAGE D'OUTIL SANS CONTACT
Abstract:
(EN) A method and an apparatus are described for assessing the beam profile of a light beam (12) of a non-contact tool setting apparatus. The non-contact tool setting apparatus comprises a transmitter (10) for emitting the light beam and a receiver (14) for receiving the light beam (12). The receiver (14) generates a beam intensity signal describing the intensity of received light. The non-contact tool setting apparatus is mounted to a machine tool having a spindle that is moveable relative to the non-contact tool setting apparatus. The method comprises loading an object having an edge into the spindle of the machine tool and using the machine tool to move the spindle relative to the non-contact tool setting apparatus so that the edge of the object passes through the light beam (12). The beam profile of the light beam (12) is then determined using the beam intensity signal generated at a plurality of positions during the step (ii) of moving the edge of the object through the light beam (12).
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil pour évaluer le profil de faisceau d'un faisceau lumineux (12) d'un appareil de réglage d'outil sans contact. L'appareil de réglage d'outil sans contact comprend un émetteur (10) pour émettre le faisceau lumineux et un récepteur (14) pour recevoir le faisceau lumineux (12). Le récepteur (14) génère un signal d'intensité de faisceau décrivant l'intensité de la lumière reçue. L'appareil de réglage d'outil sans contact est monté sur une machine-outil ayant une broche qui est mobile par rapport à l'appareil de réglage d'outil sans contact. Le procédé consiste à charger un objet ayant un bord dans la broche de la machine-outil et à utiliser la machine-outil pour déplacer la broche par rapport à l'appareil de réglage d'outil sans contact de sorte que le bord de l'objet passe à travers le faisceau lumineux (12). Le profil de faisceau du faisceau lumineux (12) est ensuite déterminé à l'aide du signal d'intensité de faisceau généré à une pluralité de positions pendant l'étape (ii) de déplacement du bord de l'objet à travers le faisceau lumineux (12).
