The WolfCMD. Optimum interaxis alignment.

“We have been using the Wolf Center Measuring Device for 2 years now and it has become an indispensable tool for us. We use it to align tooling and work-holding on our CNC lathes and especially on our Rotary Transfer Machines. Like most other shops, our prior method was to use a tenth indicator to align tools and we thought it was effective. It was not! I can tell you that using the WolfCMD is far more accurate and effective. The WolfCMD allows us to accurately check centering and for angular alignment. The simple screen immediately tells you how much to adjust and if you are going in the right direction by giving the operator a very clear target. Drilling operations run much better when perfectly on center and perfectly aligned. A properly set drill will perform like it is designed to perform. This has been our biggest payback considering that some drills can cost $500 or more. I am often surprised that a tooling company would allow an expensive tool to be used as a demo without knowing for certain that the machine and tool are perfectly set. Using the WolfCMD is the only way to give the tool a true test. We love the WolfCMD! It has been a real game changer for us.” Customer feedback

“As far as the WolfCMD goes we love it! We primarily use it to align drills and live tooling on CNC Swiss Machines, Tsugami and Citizen. Since the interior of these machines are so small this is very difficult to do with a test indicator and mirror. I would safely estimate that it takes about 1/4 of the time to make adjustments with the WolfCMD vs a test indicator.”  Customer feedback

Electronic axis measurement, digital processing, display of the measurements in real time on the screen and generation of a report on request – all this can be implemented easily and effortlessly with the new WolfCMD.

Rapid approaching of the object to be measured is made possible by a built-in adjustment unit. The measuring process is supported by the software developed specifically for this purpose.

With the use of the CMD, Wolf has reduced in-house set-up times by 80%.

Thanks to the compact design of the WolfCMD sensor, it allows for rotation around the workpiece. Centric clamping is not absolutely necessary. The sensor is universally useable.
