VUE Readout Systems

The ACU-RITE VUE is an up-to-three-axis device mainly used as position display unit for simple infeed and positioning tasks, such as on grinding machines, drilling and boring machines, press brakes, crosscut saws, for positioning on rotary tables, etc. The clear and unambiguous display of the current position value on the large, clearly structured LCD screen makes working with the VUE easy and reliable.

The position display unit has a robust housing and a membrane keyboard.

Milling Specific Features

  • Bolthole pattern calculations with graphics (full and partial circles/linear patterns)
  • Centerline calculation enables you to establish workpiece zero and midpoints

Turning Specific Features

  • Lock axis feature – used in conjunction with tool offsetting, lets you establish tool offsets with the tool under load, resulting in reduced tool deflection.
  • Instant radius/diameter conversion

300S Readout Systems

The 300S is equipped with a 5.7” LCD monitor that replaces the cathode-ray monitor of the VRO300. The “soft keys” are used for diverse functions, mainly for operation and parameterization. The monitor is the same one currently used in the 200S series. In addition, the 300S is capable of all the functions of a programmable counter, such as the creation, editing, storing and running of programs. Numerous programs with differing names can be saved in the program list.

Milling Specific Features

  • Bolt hole pattern calculations with graphics (full and partial circles/linear patterns)
  • Centerline calculation enables you to establish work piece zero and midpoints
  • Edge finder/touch probe input
