Optical Cutting Tool Inspection System with REACTION Software
For small tools between 0.025” and 0.40” (0.635 – 10mm) in diameter
The PG1000-400-1.0X is a tool geometry inspection system durable enough for everyday shop floor use and precise enough for a metrology laboratories incoming and outgoing quality inspections. The 5MP camera reproduces and displays high resolution cutting tool images magnified up to 290x on a 4K monitor.
All PG1000-400 systems collect and display data from the horizontal (X), vertical (Y), base block/tool holder rotational position (A), cross-hair rotation (Z), focus (F) and microscope magnification (M) axes as well as allow for optional lighting control through the software.

Unlike our competition, our proprietary REACTION software was designed specifically for the cutting tool industry with input from our customers. While many of our competitors use generic CAD software, which takes a screen shot of an image, the PG REACTION software allows the user to take measurements in real time without electronic pixel manipulation of the image assuring accurate and repeatable measurements down to the micron level.
The PG1000-400 REACTION software allows the user to measure tool geometries in multiple ways.
Once the tool and overly are aligned properly the DXF file can be locked to the scales and the DXF file will then follow the microscope allowing the user to visually inspect the entire geometry of the tool.
The PG REACTION software is very user friendly and and incorporates on screen prompts, instructions and video demos for each tool calculation. Calculations can be repeated efficiently by recalling previous saved inspection scenes. Annotations/notes can be added alongside measurements. With the click of an icon the software will create a PDF report which includes images and customer supplied details, as well as an optional PASS/FAIL notification. Optionally, measurement results can also be saved in a customer supplied Excel template, or in a blank Excel document.

A precise calibration is the foundation for any accurate mechanical or optical inspection. Only after a proper calibration can accurate and repeatable inspection results be obtained. All PG1000’s are delivered having been factory calibrated, using proprietary certified glass reticles and a calibration process that is integrated in our REACTION software.
The calibration procedure follows ISO guidelines and produces a PASS/FAIL calibration report that shows ‘as found’ and ‘as calibrated’ values.
The PG1000 systems can be calibrated with either a standard or linear calibration reticle. Both the standard and linear reticles are available for rental or purchase. Both reticles calibrate the system at each zoom magnification.
The standard 1000-443 reticle will also calibrate the scales on the X-axis (horizontal) and Y-axis (vertical) over a 50x50mm area. This reticle works well for applications that require a relatively small designated measuring area.
When a larger measuring area is needed, it is important to calibrate at multiple points along the X- and Y-axes. The larger 1000-645 linear calibration reticle calibrates the scales on the X-axis every 10mm and on the Y-axis every 5mm over the entire 85x200mm measuring range.
For both reticles, accurate distance compensation values are saved and applied during tool inspection for each axis, assuring accurate distance measurement.
