    Tool break monitor

    we don't get continuity thru our speeder spindle, maybe because of ceramic bearings. And I was told a laser is bigger then the drill so it wouldn't detect a broken drill. I was trying to find a way to energize the work piece and hook a light up so when the drill touches the work piece the light goes on. Maybe I'm not thinking straight.

    Does anyone know of a tool break monitor that will work with a 20 micron drill? I am drilling 10 pieces with 1300 hole in each piece and would like a light or something to alert me when the tool breaks. not sure if there is something like this available.

    Micro drills

    Thanks for all the input I will check out these options.
  7. Looking for some options on how to set the length offset on a 30 micron drill. we have been doing it with a portable micro scope , but we are not very efficient right now , looking for a quicker option . thanks
  8. Thanks for all the info . We have a company coming from Toronto to help us with this. I think it will be a big investment but hopefully it works out.
  9. we are running it on a brand new hurco. but that may have to change . I know it can be done our competitor is doing now. I will contact hurco and see what they say. Thanks
  10. I know that this exists, but not sure where to look for it. What I want to do is energize my work piece, so when my tool comes in contact with the top of the part it automatic zeros my z axis. What our customer wants, is to keep the hole within .0003 in depth over 540 hole our drill dia is .020 . the problem is the material is graphite and the top surface is not 100% flat. Does anyone have experience with this?

    spindle speed multiplier.

    awesome thats the one I was looking at. it goes to 80k. we are drilling .0015 dia. holes right now in HURCO running 8k ,not to efficient . do you need to keep the machine isolated from the vibration of other machine in the shop?
  12. Does anyone use a spindle multiplier? I am looking to get up to 100000 rpm if possible. Thanks
