Tool Setting Probes

 

Benefits of Automated Tool Setting

Using slip gauges and entering offset data manually takes time and is prone to operator error. Tool setting probes are easily installed on machining centers and CNC turning centers, allowing automated operation with the following benefits:

  • Significant time savings with reduced machine downtime
  • Accurate tool length and diameter measurement
  • Automatic tool offset calculation and correction
  • Elimination of manual setting errors
  • In-cycle tool breakage detection
  • Reduced scrap
