The renowned German machine tool magazine awarded its “MM zur AMB 2018” prizes for state-of-the-art metallurgy innovation at the AMB trade fair.

On the first day of the event, MM Maschinenmarkt awarded SORALUCE the innovation prize in the Metrology and Quality Control category. There were three finalists in this category among many contenders for the prize: SORALUCE with its VSET measurement system, Renishaw with the SFP2 roughness sensor, and Vito with its KSS Vito 90 filter. SORALUCE finally won over the jury of five specialist MM Maschinenmarkt editors.

SORALUCE VSET is a new measurement system based on 3D vision technology, which reduces timelines for calculation of best fit and alignment of large-format raw parts by up to 70%. The process guarantees the quality of parts from previous processes such as casting, forging and welding.

It is composed of three modules (VSET Measuring, VSET Fitting and VSET Alignment). The first two are run with the part outside the machine, thereby increasing machine availability. SORALUCE can also integrate the results of measurement and fitting on the machine via the VSET Alignment module.
