The KOMET GROUP has equipped its fine adjustment head MicroKom® BluFlex™ with modern wireless networking to make setting work easier for machine users. By using a wireless connection via Bluetooth* technology, the KOMET GROUP has managed to disconnect the display of the fine adjustment head MicroKom® from the tool head. This has made the tool less sensitive in application and improved its concentricity properties. There is a major benefit for the user, who can now attach the display by magnet anywhere on the machine – so that it is in his field of view and easy to read.
As one of the leading full-range suppliers for precision tools, the KOMET GROUP is continually developing its range of tools to enable users to increase productivity even further. One typical example is the new KOMET KUB Centron® Powerline presented as a standard tool at the AMB 2012 – an advanced development of theKOMET KUB Centron® core bit drill.
