Haimer USA (Villa Park, IL) offers a new, affordable digital 3-D sensor called Zero Master to its line of three-dimensional edge finders.

Incorporating technology that has become the standard throughout Europe, this gage enables anyone to accurately and easily measure and identify X, Y and Z workpiece dimensions. The Zero Master has a 0.2000" ball that is off-set 0.1000" on the digital read-out. The workpiece can be approached from any of three directions (X, Y or Z). Once the gage reaches 0, the machine is resting directly over the edge of the workpiece. No calculations are needed—the digital read-out of the machining center or EDM machine gives operators the true location of the workpiece.

It’s no longer necessary to lean into a machining center in order to measure or align a workpiece. All of the data is right in front of the operator for safe and easy use. In addition, no calculations are necessary when finding an edge—simply stop when the digital read-out of the Zero Master indicates 0. This eliminates calculating or problems with positive or negative signs. This technology can be applied to the latest state-of-the-art machining centers, all the way down to the most basic manual milling machines.

The digital display has large numbers that measure in increments of 0.0005". The compact design works well in small working envelopes or when Z-axis travel is limited. A replaceable standard battery allows for years of use with one gage.
