Tool setter with height 42mm and optional contact type NC (4 wire) or NO (6 wire) can be used for CNC machine centers tool z axis setting.Specification:
Dimension (unit: mm):Wiring diagram:Tips: Why you need a tool setter?The tool setting of CNC machining directly affects the accuracy of the machined parts and also affects the operation of CNC machine tools. The tool setting is to position the tool's tool position on the starting point (tool setting point) in the workpiece coordinate system, so that it is under the control of the NC program, the machining surface cut by this tool has the correct dimensional relationship with respect to the positioning reference, so as to guarantee the processing accuracy requirements of parts. For CNC lathes or CNC machine centers, since the center position (X0, Y0, A0) is already determined by CNC, determining the axial position can determine the entire machining coordinate system. Therefore, only one end face in the axial direction (Z0 or relative position) needs to be determined as the tool setting point. By using the tool setter, the tool setting error of CNC machine tools can be improved.There are two types of tool setter: the internal tool setting and the external tool setting. Internal tool setting is to install the tool directly on a fixed position of the machine tool (for lathes, the tool is directly installed on the tool holder or mounted on the tool holder through the tool holder). This method is mostly used in turning CNC machine tools. For external tool setting, the tool setter must be installed on the tool holder (lathe) through the tool holder, together with the tool holder, calibrated outside the machine tool in advance, and then the tool can be installed on the machine tool. This method is currently mainly used Used in boring and milling CNC machine tools, such as CNC machining centers. Adopting the tool setter for tool setting compared to the traditional method of tool setting, although the costs relatively high and the loading and unloading of tools is relatively laborious. But it can save the tool setting time and improve the tool setting accuracy. It is generally used in CNC machine tools with high accuracy requirements.
