Trusted Innovation @ GrindTec 2023

Explore the new generation of InfiniteFocus 

Alicona InfiniteFocus | Dimensional accuracy & surface finish measurement

InfiniteFocus G6

Explore the new InfiniteFocusG6. It is an accurate, fast and universal optical 3D measuring instrument for tolerances in the µm and sub-µm range. Components are measured area-based and with high resolution independent of size, material, geometry, weight and surface finish. A number of proven and new features combine the functionalities of a roughness measuring system (Ra, Rq, Rz/Sa, Sq, Sz) with the characteristics of a coordinate measuring machine.

Automatic Wear Measurement on Cutting Tools

The wear measurement is an extension of the Bruker Alicona measuring systems for optical cutting edge measurement. Users automatically measure differential parameters and wear parameters according to ISO 8688 (Tool Life Testing in Milling), such as flank wear.

Reliable tool quality control

Find out how international tool manufacturer OSG uses Bruker Alicona metrology to ensure high quality tool performance. To analyse the tools, the following parameters are measured:

  • edge radii of all four cutting edges at defined positions relative to the tip
  • profile roughness along one of the edges to identify chipping
  • surface roughness inside the flute

White Paper

Are your cutting tools competitive?

Users of drills and milling cutters often complain about edge defects, rapid wear, long machining times or unsatisfying results on the workpiece. In most of the cases, failures can be attributed to the tool’s incorrect surface finish or lack of know-how. The following white-paper shows how optical 3D measurement technology can help to identify ideal tool and machining parameters and thus meet customer requirements.
