The global spreading of the Corona virus COVID 19 leaves us facing challenges of an unexpected kind!

 

The well-being and safety of our employees at Status Pro GmbH (Ltd.) is of utmost priority. The result of our precautionary measures ensures continuity in delivering the highest standards of business and operational performance during these difficult times.

 

We are still 100% prepared and ready, either:

  • over the phone
  • through the Internet/vidcons etc.
  • on-site if necessary

All departments are still contactable, under implementation of the new safety regulations (partly in shift work and partly as home-office).

 

 

Sales:

We can still help you with training in spite of these difficult times.

  • In the Form of a Video-steam Conference or Demo:
    We can show you all our instruments and many applications including software through live streaming from our Training center.
     
  • In some cases we can also visit you at your premises:
    Sometimes there is no alternative performing test measurements on your machine.  Particularly if the is new for us or or the requirements are not typical.
    In such cases with some planning and with the correct protective equipment and procedures we can come to your facility.

Training:

Maybe this is a good opportunity to freshen up on training.

  • Per Video-conference:
    Either we do the measuring and stream to you or you do the measurement and stream the video to us. Just call us so that we can plan it.
     
  • Conventional training at your premises:
    With good planning we can still do conventional trading at your premises.
    We can insure that it is contact free and maintaining the appropriate distance.
    We have the necessary protective clothing.

Service work and surveying, on-site:

Utilise the time at hand to inspect and survey your machinery and ultimately bring it up to scratch for when the ball starts to roll again.
Our professional measurement and adjustment team are ready and prepared for an on-site visit. Observing the new safety regulations (distancing, hygiene, protective clothing etc.) , maintenance work can be carried out as safely as before.This could be an ideal time to have your machine geometry measured. Again with the appropriate planning and equipment we can still do the all the measurements as before. 

Please call us and we will see what we can arrange.

Machine Tool Alignment

Tools of the ProLine Series

Correction of Kinematic errors

In this section we are occupied with the alignment of machining centers, traveling column machines, Portal machines. lathes and a variety of other smaller machine with 3 to 6 axis. For all these machines the basic machine geometry is essential for product quality and reliability and longevity. Along any guide axis we have a variety of kinematic errors, such as  roll, nick, yaw errors together with positioning errors. Further the perpendicularity and the parallelism of this axis to one another is of great importance. An understanding of machine tool error sources and there correction is the first step in minimizing and compensating for these errors and therefore achieving high-accuracy machined parts.

Since the 1950’s these errors have been measured and corrected using spirit levels, piano wire, Granit blocks and dial indicators. Since the 1980’s the glass scale position error has been corrected with an interferometer like µLine.

Since the 1990’s Pressure to improve the precision the ease of use, the documentation and the speed of these measurements have given rise to precision digital spirit level like µlevel and a variety of laser alignment devices.Status Pro has been working on some practical solutions since 1995.

For example you can measure perpendicularity in two axes in less than 30 minutes with µm precision with our T430.  That’s what this section is about.

What are the packages about?

We make a bunch of laser transmitters and receivers, sensors, mechanical adaptation and software. To make things a bit easier we have made packages for typical user customer requirements.

For example if you need to do machine tool alignment and you require straightness, level, right angels and parallelism then you probably need a ProLine 300 package. This probably contains all the elements you need. If not you can add whatever you need as you need it. 

If you only want to measure straightness then the ProLine 100 is a good start.
A Proline 200 has more capability than a ProLine 100.

Most of the packages can be upgraded or downgraded after you get more experience.

prolevela®_100 – for flatness and level

Need a to measure and align to level?

Replace your level spirit and old levelling tools with the ProLevel® 100 system!  It is ideal for aligning machine tables. It records and saves all measured data with the help of easy-to-use software for your laptop.
Completely compatible with ProLine® components.
