For tool measuring and broken tool detection on vertical and horizontal machining centres and gantry machining centres.

Fast and accurate on-machine tool setting and broken tool detection.

Superior communication capability.

Outstanding performance for less scrap and higher profits.

Radio transmission

A radio transmission tool setter, the RTS is suitable for use on machining centres of all sizes and in applications where line-of-sight between the tool setter and receiver is difficult to achieve. It offers users broken tool detection and rapid measurement of tool length and diameter on a wide range of tools.

The cable-free design of the RTS means it can be used stand-alone or as part of a multi‑probe system, enabling use in a wide range of applications.
