OTS 3D touch-trigger tool setter
For tool measuring and broken tool detection on small to medium machining centres.
Rapid measurement of tool length and diameter.
Cable-free for unrestricted machine movement.
Direction-adjustable infrared optical module.
Compact 3D touch-trigger tool setter with optical signal transmission used for broken tool detection and rapid measurement of tool length and diameter on a wide range of tools.
Compatible with Renishaw optical modulated receivers.
Features and benefits
- Proven kinematic design.
- Exceptional resistance to light interference with modulated transmission.
- Direction-adjustable infrared optical module.
- Cable-free for unrestricted machine movement and ease of installation.
- 1.00 μm 2σ repeatability.
Previously it could take 1.5 hours to set a job that took 4.5 hours of machining; that was totally unacceptable. Now we can do the same set-up in 10 minutes, immediately freeing up 1 hour 20 minutes to cut more metal, which we make money on.
Tool setting software options
The following macro-based software packages can be used to program tool setting and broken tool detection routines on CNC machining centres.
