The Renishaw OTS 3D touch-trigger tool setter for automated tool length and diameter measurement can be used out of the box with the native cycles of the SINUMERIK ONE CNC. The kinematic mechanism is capable of achieving a repeatability of 1µm and the use of optical transmission provides a cable-free environment for unrestricted worry-free machine movement. Includes the OMI-2T Optical Receiver.

This option is highly recommended to reduce the amount of time in tool set-up, increase the accuracy of tool table data and enable you to make full use of the powerful tool management capabilities of the SINUMERIK ONE CNC. The OTS Tool setter may also be used within the Auto cycles for in-process tool breakage detection.

The Renishaw OMP40-2 3D touch-trigger inspection probe is a compact touch probing solution that can be used out-of-the box with the native probing cycles of the SINUMERIK ONE CNC. Using a kinematic mechanism, the OMP40-2 probe is able to achieve a repeatability of 1µm. Optical transmission sends the data to the control without the use of cables. Includes the OMI-2T Optical Receiver.

This option is highly recommended to replace manual edge finders to decrease the amount of time in set-up. The probe may also be integrated into Auto cycles to decrease errors, downtime and scrap.

Other VMCsi Options

Other VMCsi Options

  • Transformer — transforms from 480 to 208, only VMC7si and VMC10si, factory mounted in an enclosure on the side of the column.
  • 4th Axis Ready — the electrics cabinet is pre-wired for the optional 4th axis rotary unit. You would want this to have each machine in your shop able to run the 4th axis and then swap the actual rotary unit between them. It also enables the installation of the option on the machine later without a lot of downtime or expense.
  • Oil Skimmer — operated by a button on the control panel or may be programmed.
  • BT40 — ATC arm is adapted to accept your BT-style tools.
