Locate Features on Parts or Material with the POL

The Precision Optical Locator (POL) facilitates precision JetMachining of pre-machined components, such as die stripper plates. The POL is designed to let you accurately place parts on the OMAX for secondary machining operations. You can place the parts in any orientation, and the software will automatically rotate the tool path to match the placement of the part. The Precision Optical Locator uses modern compact video technology to precisely locate any points, edges or holes on a pre-machined piece of material that is placed on the OMAX cutting table. The software package then reorients the cutting program to precisely align with the located features.
