Description Stand alone presetter E68LA IS

The base and column of the E68LA IS presetter are in natural granite and are equipped with larger sections than previous models to ensure greater rigidity and stability over time.

All the E68 presetter machines series are equipped, both on the X axis and on the Z axis, with GS371 optical scales with natural granite ruler and graduated glass scale.

The first and only optical scale in the world that uses natural granite, ensuring a precision and repeatability never seen before.

Compact and rigid, perfect for use in an industrial environment where the vibrations are constant and can create disturbances: E68LA IS will leave you speechless, the depth of its performances backed up by facts.

At any time you want and when you need to.

All the spindle-holders are totally interchangeable, which avoids coupling errors.

Following strict construction and testing procedures, the result is guaranteed: the run-out error is less than 2 μm.

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

Bi-telecentric optics with higher magnification ratio and increased focal distance, telecentric illuminator, C-MOS sensor (framed image area 8 x 8mm) and much more.

Why stop at measuring? Perfect inspection images, in every detail. Seeing is believing.

You don't see the magic, you perceive it: thanks to AUTOFOCUS function, the presetting experience is even easier and more enjoyable.

No data entry, no pre-operation: by clicking on "AUTO” button, the spindle makes a 360°rotation and the software analyzes all the cutting edges.

The rotation spindle peripherical speed is calculated based on the tool diameter.

Why complicate your life when the solution is simple and uncompromising?

The E68LA IS is equipped with two 22” touch-screen monitors which are mounted vertically for better viewing. The main monitor (left) is dedicated to all the tool presetting and measurement functions, while the secondary monitor (right) has been developed for TP32 tool management and TID tool identification. We put you first.

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...
