Tool setters are ON/OFF high-precision touch sensors used for positioning cutting tools and nozzles.
Tool condition (length and chips) is monitored to prevent machining defects due to wear and thermal displacement.
Automated in-machine measurement eliminates manual setup work and machining defects resulting in improved productivity. This sensor is indispensable for automated operation of CNC machine tools and industrial robots.
METROL tool setters are best-selling products with over 500,000 units shipped globally in 74 countries.
