BlueSYSTEM SIGMA - the ORIGINAL

BlueSYSTEM Sigma, the perfect inclinometer for measuring straightness, flatness, squareness as well as machine geometry

The BlueSYSTEM Sigma is the perfect measuring instrument to align machines and – together with the wylerSPEC software – for the measurement of straightness, flatness, squareness as well as machine geometry and machine rotations. BlueSYSTEM Sigma combines high accuracy (0.001mm /m = 0.2 arcsec) with the robustness required in the machine tool business. The user-friendly wylerSPEC software enables users to achieve the required accuracy of their machine and to record it afterwards. 

 

A BlueSYSTEM Sigma normally consists of two BlueLEVEL measuring instruments. Depending on the application – e.g. for the alignment of machines - a BlueMETER Sigma display unit is required. If the instruments are used together with wylerSPEC software, they are directly connected to the laptop via the wylerCONNECT. 


For the most important and most typical applications, we put together several BlueSYSTEM Bundles. This simplifies choosing the optimal set for your application. 


Some examples of applications with instruments of the BlueSYSTEM family in combination with the WYLER software wylerSPEC.

LINES / PARALLELISM

Measurement of straightness and parallelism

LINES / PARALLELISM with TWIST

Measurement of straightness and parallelism with twist

Measurement of perpendicularity on machines or a granite measuring square

FLATNESS

Measurement of the flatness of a granite plate or a machine tool

CIRCULR PATHS and CIRCULR PATHS WITH TWIST

Measurement of ring-shaped overlays consisting of one or two rings – with or without twist 

ROTATION VERTICAL AXIS

Measuring the perpendicularity of a vertical spindle to the machine table

ROTATION    ROLL - PITCH - YAW

The pitch and roll movements can be recorded with the WYLER inclination measurement    devices; the yaw      movements  can be recorded with laser interferometers or autocollimators.

Thanks to its outstanding features and to the special transportation case, the ENGINEER SET can be used in-house or be taken along to customers. As its predecessor, this newest generation of high-precision electronic inclination measuring instruments is specifically suitable for the precision measurement of even the smallest of angles.Applications are therefore in general the levelling of objects, and in particular the measurement of flatness of surface plates or the measurement of the geometry of machine tools.

 

The sensor itself, the heart of every precision measuring instrument, has been further developed as well, to allow precise measurements even under critical environmental conditions.

 

 

 

The key features of these new series of instruments are:

  • Compact and pleasant design, which is functionally optimized for precision measurement
  • Radio data transmission based on the internationally approved Bluetooth™ Standard
  • Large and easy-to-read LCD display, which can be read from both sides since the handle can be rotated
  • Each instrument has its own specific address allowing the use of several independent systems in the same room without interfering with each other
  • Since each instrument has a built in Infrared receiver, the measurement can be initiated at any instrument
  • Sensitivity: 0.001mm/m: range ± 20 mm/m
  • Linearity according to DIN 2276
  • All instruments are equipped with RS232- / RS485 interfaces
  • Powered by standard 1.5 V batteries size C
  • In compliance with CE regulations and all applicable EMC regulations

BlueMETER SIGMA


MONITORING A GENERATOR IN A POWER STATION

Subject:

The operator of a power station wants to ensure that the mechanical strain on the generators remains within the tolerances even during significant changes of power level. 

 

Measuring task: 

Permanent monitoring of the structure of generator at all critical positions.

CALIBRATION OF SURFACE PLATES (FLATNESS)

Subject:

The quality of granite references like surface plates, straight edges or squares must be checked and certified regularly.

 

Measuring task:

The measurement and calibration of granite master squares and surface plates should be performed efficiently. 

MACHINE TOOLS / CHECKING OF ROTATION ERRORS

Subject:

Machine tools must be checked periodically for geometrical deviations, since changes of the geometry have a direct influence on the quality of the parts manufactured on that machine. 

It is very important that during the displacement in one axis the tool will follow a straight path compared to the table. On machines of light-weight construction the table can show a deformation due to its own weight. 

If the complete machine construction is tilting during the displacement of the table this is a sign for insufficient stability of the foundation or for a flexibility of the stand (damping elements).

 

Measuring task:

The geometry of a machine tool must be verified. The check must show rotational errors of the table during displacement. The measurement should be made reliably and efficiently. 

 

MEASUREMENT OF THE ABSOLUTE POSITION OF A Guideway

Subject:

The straightness of a guide way can be measured very easily and very precisely with the software wylerSPEC. Since the straightness is independent of the absolute position of the guide way in space, it is enough to measure “relative”. On the other hand, when adjusting a machine, it can be very helpful to know the exact position of the guide way in space.

 

Measuring task:

For a guide way, not only its straightness but also its deviation from the horizontal plane shall be measured. Furthermore, it should be shown where and how much the guideway should be corrected to adjust it horizontally.

LARGE GRINDING MACHINE WITH FLAT GUIDEWAYS

Subject:

A manufacturer of large metal plates has several large surface grinding machines in his workshop. The geometry of these machines must be checked and documented periodically, and, where required, to be corrected. 

 

Measuring task:

On a surface grinding machine with 18-meter-long guideways, set 1.3m apart, the parallelism of the two guideways must be checked periodically. The guideways must be within a plane with a maximum tolerance (error) of less than 0.1 mm. The complete machine and its guideways can be adjusted by means of supporting screws placed at 750 mm intervals.

FLATNESS MEASUREMENT ON A CIRCULAR SUPPORT OF A TURN TABLE

Subject:

Module 4 of the software wylerSPEC allows users to determine the flatness of a rectangular surface very easily. The measurement of the flatness of a circular support though, as it is used for large machine tools, is much more complex. 

 

Measuring task:

The flatness of a circular support with a diameter of 2.3m must be determined.

MEASUREMENT OF A CIRCLE ON A ROUND TABLE OF A GRINDING MACHINE

Subject:

A manufacturer of large metal plates has several large surface grinding machines in his workshop. The geometry of these machines must be checked and documented periodically, and, where required, to be corrected.

 

Measuring task:

The flatness of a rotating table of a grinding machine with a diameter of 3200 mm must be measured. Thereby only the flatness of a circle must be measured and not the whole table.

MEASUREMENT OF PITCH AND ROLL ON A GRINDING MACHINE

Subject:

A manufacturer of large metal plates has several large surface grinding machines in his workshop. The geometry of these machines must be checked and documented periodically, and, where required, to be corrected.

 

Measuring task:

On a large surface grinding machine with guide ways with a length of 18m pitch and roll must be checked. The maximum tolerance is 0.1 mm/m.

MEASUREMENT OF THE RECTANGULARITY OF THE HEAD OF A ROUND TABLE GRINDING MACHINE

Subject:

A manufacturer of large metal plates has several large surface grinding machines in his workshop. The geometry of these machines must be checked and documented periodically, and, where required, to be corrected.

 

Measuring task:

The rectangularity of the axis of a grinding head of large grinding machine in relation to the bearing of a round table with a diameter of 3200 mm must be measured. Based on the results, if necessary, the inclination of the head must be adjusted.

DAM MONITORING

Subject:

The requirements regarding long term monitoring of dams are continuously increasing. Where it was enough earlier to carry out periodic measurements, today more and more permanent monitoring is required.

 

Measuring task:

The changes in inclination in both directions (mountain <-> mountain and water <-> air) of a dam shall be monitored continuously.

EFFICIENT CHECKING OF THE ALIGNMENT OF A MACHINE / CASE 1 + 2

Subject: 

Customers often have the need to verify whether a machine is still in tolerance after e.g. a crash or during the yearly maintenance on the machine. 

Calling in an external technician might be too cumbersome, too time consuming or too costly. 

 

Measuring task: 

Efficient checking of the machine. 

MEASURING - CALIBRATION / FLATNESS MEASUREMENT, ANGLES

Subject:

The quality of granite references like surface plates, straight edges or squares must be checked and certified regularly.

 

Measuring task:

The measurement and calibration of granite master squares and surface plates should be performed efficiently.
