About TRS2

TRS2 coolantThe new TRS2 is a cost-effective broken tool detection system. Its ToolWise™ electronics have been enhanced to make detection of small, dark tools more reliable, saving time and money.

The unique tool recognition electronics determine whether a tool is present by analysing the reflective light pattern from the rotating tool. Random light patterns created by coolant and swarf are ignored, eliminating the chance of failing to detect a broken tool due to coolant obscuring the beam.

Features and benefits

  • Cost effective and reliable
  • Ultra quick detection - tool spends about 1 second in the laser beam
  • Simple installation - only one small unit to install
  • Simple set-up using specifically written software for TRS2
  • Wide range of tools can be detected
