Description Presetter machine E68BA

The E68BA preset is an easy and simple tool which improves and increases productivity and production efficiency which consequently helps to reduce costs.

We chose to use natural granite as part of the structure because it is the best for the job: this unique material offers dimensional and thermal stability, durability just to name some of the advantages.

Why not use granite for optical scales? All E68 models are equipped with GS371 optical lines with natural granite scales on the X and Y axis. The level of precision and consistency of measurements is extremely high due to thermally stability and zero mechanical calibration.

Compact and solid, the E68BA is perfect for use in an industrial workspace where noise and vibrations can create problems: The E68BA presetter machine will amaze you with its consistent and reliable performance, the facts speak for themselves.

All spindle holders are interchangeable which avoids coupling errors. After meticulous construction and rigorous testing procedures, we guarantee results: the run-out error is less than 2 μm.

How is it possible to measure a micron, which is 50 times smaller than a human hair? Simple, with a high performance camera system where every element has been designed and built for this specific function.

Movement of the axes is done via the control panel. Everything is motorized and managed via software.

No errors, precise in every movement

The AUTOFOCUS function makes the measuring procedure even easier and more engaging. Eliminate pre-operation and data entry activities by clicking the "AUTO" button. The spindle rotates 360 ° and via software it can analyze all the cutting edges. The peripheral speed of spindle rotation is calculated based on tool diameter.

Why complicate life when the solution is simple and uncompromising?

E68BA can be equipped with the new Automatic Tool Recognition system. For more info, click here.

Natural granite


Granite holds a very important quality when it comes to measurement. It's a natural material with the lowest thermal expansion coefficient in the world. 

Natural granite is an igneous rock generated by solidification of a magmatic mass in the Eart...

Thermal expansion is a phenomenon which occurs when a body (liquid, gaseous or solid) increases in volume as a result of an increase in temperature. This increase is caused by oscillation variation of the atoms around the equilibrium point.

In case of solid body, the thermal expansion concerns&n...
