KERN U-View: Tool Inspection System

What Is The Kern U-View?

When using small diameter tools, it’s very difficult to see via the naked eye whether they are worn or not. This carries the risk of scrapping tools that aren’t worn and still have more life in them.

The Kern μ-View from Kern Microtechnik is one of the most advanced tool inspection systems, complementing any machine set up. Kern, a global pioneer in micro machining and precision engineering, meticulously crafted and developed this remarkable equipment for internal usage. Recognizing its immense benefits, they successfully transformed it into a commercial product that stands at the forefront of the industry today. Introducing a machine that excels in both accuracy and performance, Kern has revolutionised the market with unparalleled levels of precision and efficiency.

Reduce Your Cutting Tool Expenditure

Every tool error costs time and money, resulting in delivery delays and unsatisfied customers. The μ-View optical camera system is the answer to minimising that risk.

With its high magnification capability (able to magnify images 610-fold), the Kern μ-View enables users to detect defects or breakages that can only be seen under a microscope. Having such information at your fingertips allows you to see defects before you use a tool and to drastically reduce tool replacement costs by optimising their useful life span.

Rainford serves as the exclusive sales agent for Kern in the UK and Ireland. With over three decades of industry expertise, our team is dedicated to guiding you through the myriad advantages of the μ-View, and demonstrating how it can greatly enhance your bottom line.

The End Mill was an ideal choice due to the unusual shape and the need to have a small radius. They turned out great, and the surface finish is really good.
