How interface a tool presetter with CNC machines

2019-06-25 17:27:54

Using a tool presetter to measure tool assemblies normally always adds an additional requirement to provide some means of transfer of the measurement data to the respective numerically controlled machine.

This is critically tied also to ensuring that the presetter provides precise and accurate data and that there is an established relationship between the measured data on the tool presetter and the values required for the offsets on the machine tool. Small spindle and gauge line variations between the machine tools can be managed and controlled if this situation and the individual requirements are known.
