The Speroni Magis benchtop tool presetter from Big Kaiser is now available in a CNC version for operator-independent measuring results. Electronics and motors enable fast movement and repeatable positioning of the X and Z axes and spindle, delivering full CNC measuring with an uncertainty in the two linear axes of ±1 micron. The machine can automatically execute measuring cycles, adding speed and precision. The presetter has a standard X-axis range of -2.00" to +14.00" (-50 to +350 mm) and is available in three column sizes, with Z-axis travels measuring 16", 20" and 24" (400, 500 and 600 mm) respectively, making it well-suited for most offline tool measurement and presetting needs, the company says.

A thermally stable, pearlitic, class 40 cast iron construction; a tool management database storing data for unlimited tool assemblies; 270-degree access to the tools while in the spindle; and sub-pixel and sub-micron resolution all support high accuracy and repetitive positioning and assembly. The series is also available with optional built-in retention knob clamping that provides a strong and repeatable seating in the spindle, mimicking that of the machine tool. 

The unit’s progressive-scan CCD camera is equipped with high-accuracy telecentric optics that provide virtual magnification of 45× with the option to zoom to 120×. Additionally, an Episcopy Front Ring Light system provides a light source for manual inspection of the tool tip/insert on the vision screen. The system is complete with a variable adjustment knob for the proper inspection of the different types of coated inserts.

The included workbench provides an enclosed, yet ventilated, storage area with a lockable door to prevent tampering. Additional bench features include molded pockets for inserts and screws, storage for wrenches, and holders for multiple reduction sleeves and other accessories.

As for interface, the CNC is designed to be simpler than other controls, combining necessary features and functions in a user-friendly, single-screen. The presetter is equipped with Speroni Edge 2.0, which enables CAM interfacing and can be implemented with RFID systems.
