Development of inspection system for tool presetter
In order to conform to the concept of smart factory for industry 4.0, this paper developed a low-cost tool measuring machine included the structure design, hardware planning of the server, electromechanical control, drive system, human machine interface, communication between hardware and software, software development, and so on. The proposed measuring system provided more flexibility and integration with peripheral equipment for the requirements of industry 4.0. Compared with a Germanic measuring machine, experimental results showed that the percentage of errors of the designed inspection instrument were 0.004 ％ and 0.003 ％ for the tool length and diameter measurements of a square end mill, respectively.
