Today's manufacturers are measuring tool tolerances in microns, finishes are highly polished and possibly diamond coated making contactless inspection the only option. Often traceability for ISO is now a requirement, from the reticle certification to gage calibration reports to the tool inspection report.

The PG 1000 Advance REACTION gage and Basic REACTION gage are the cutting edge of the next generation of digital low light inspection technology for inspecting cutting tools meeting ISO requirements. Our new REACTION software makes both scale and edge detection inspections in real time. You can make, save and recall inspection scenes for new tool inspections of a tool image using scales, screen, edge detection, comparisons or .dxf file overlays in multiple colors. Annotate the screen to make your own tool inspection document. All systems are sold ready to use with standard V-block assemblies, optional accessories available. Manufactured in the US. All software is written by Euro-Tech Corporation.

  • Higher accuracy inspections with true 4K inspection capability; magnification to 400x and X-micron linear scales makes the new PG1000-400S-4K inspection gage ideal for micro tools. More pixels per inch results in better image quality and higher accuracy inspections with this REACTION series gage. 4K encompasses visual resolution technology offering at least 4 times more pixels than conventional 1080 pixel HD resolution.

    The PG1000-400S-4K comes complete with Euro-Tech’s patented REACTION software. This software has raised the bar in cutting tool inspection making both scale and edge detection inspections possible in real time. Make, save and recall inspection scenes for new tool inspections of a tool image using scales, screen, edge detection, comparisons or .dxf file overlays in multiple colors. Annotate the screen to make your own tool inspection document. Segmented scale calibrations on any PG 1000 sold as a REACTION series gage can now be done over the entire working envelope of the microscope. Cutting edge digital low light inspection technology for inspecting cutting tools is now possible with the PG1000-400S-4K, PG 1000 Advance and the PG 1000 Basic REACTION series gages. We’ve even upgraded our proven hardware for better repeatability. 
  • The PG1000 REACTION Software is a proprietary software written by Euro-Tech for the exclusive purpose of cutting tool inspection. The word REACTION is an acronym for REAltime Cutting Tool InspectION meaning we digitally analyze five million pixels, sorting over sixteen million colors fifteen times a second to find patterns and shapes overlooking excessive glare from too much directed light, shadows, irregular or broken shapes. REACTION Software does not electronically enhance, crop or magnify tool images in any way, what you see is exactly what the camera captures, the GPU and CPU analyze to help you, the user, inspect your cutting tools.

    Unlike competitors, we didn’t use a CAD system as the backbone of our software. CAD systems are great for drawing images and dimensioning them on paper but are incapable of doing complex custom image analysis. Instead we invested into the development of our custom PG1000 software designed exclusively for cutting tool inspection.

    Multiple inspections can be made on a single image in real time; saved they become an inspection scene. Save an inspection scene and you’ve just created a macro to repeat tool inspections. Save multiple tool scenes to create complete tool inspection, save scenes and inspection as archives for tool documentation or export inspection data to Excel. Import .dxf or .dwg files for tool comparisons or collect data points for export to a CAD system.

    Many of our features have been customer driven taking our customers’ best suggestions and ideas, processing them into reality to create the ultimate Cutting Edge Inspection Software for Cutting Tools.
