Blum measures success at Aero Engineering 2011

At Aerospace Engineering 2011 on stand 733 Blum NovoTest will present its exciting new range of touch probes and FormControl 5-axis contour measurement software. New developments to these products will appear alongside well established and successful products like the LaserControl NT-H 3D and the Z-Probe series for tool setting and measurement.

Blum is returning to the exhibition following major demand for its products at the 2010 event. This success has provided the platform for Blum to win considerable business with globally renowned aerospace OEMs that demand impeccable quality and reliability with their manufacturing processes.

To further improve its growing reputation in the aerospace market, the Blum stand will show the established TC50 Workpiece Touch Probe and the TC52. With a diameter of 40mm and an effective length from spindle nose to stylus tip of only 112mm, the TC52 sets new standards. This system has a completely innovative optoelectronic measuring unit and compared with competitor probes, the TC52 has the same measuring results when probing in various directions.

For higher accuracy, versatility and reliability as demanded by the aero industry, Blum-Novotest will present the TC53-10 probe that is used on milling, turning or combined mill/turn machines for tool and workpiece measurement. It will appear alongside the TC53-20 probe, an alternative to the proven Z-Nano IR for tool setting in all three axes. The TC53-20 and TC53-10 probes incorporate Blum's revolutionary ´Shark360' technology that introduces an ingeniously-designed face gear mechanism in the body of the probe assembly to ensure maximum accuracy in all directions for measuring with off-centre styli.

For additional turning and round work applications, Blum will show its established TC76-N touch probe. The probe has been designed for both tool and workpiece measurement in turning machines. To support the measurement of the workpiece and working in conjunction with the TC range of Blum spindle probes, the company will highlight its new FormControl V3 software. This latest addition to the FormControl software family is ideal for 5-axis applications and it allows the end user to eliminate additional CMM set-up times.

Commenting on the importance of the exhibition, Blum Novotest Director, Mr David Mold comments: "Aero Engineering 2010 gave us a remarkable level of leads and business, so we are looking forward to the 2011 event. The products on our stand will demonstrate our ability to resolve issues that are commonplace in this high technology industry. Our proven problem solving technology and the opportunity to show it on this platform once again is an exciting prospect."
