Command Tooling says its Digiset 6 presetter provides increased productivity and streamlined setups for precision machining. Featuring a control system and software that are designed for ease of use, the presetter prolongs tool live while improving tool performance, part quality and accuracy, the company says. Its digital-camera imaging shows measuring results on a color display.
Operators can manage as many as 1,000 tools simultaneously and use programs to perform axial and radial runout inspection, cutting-edge inspection, zero-point monitoring and measurement of multi-bladed tools. Other features include pneumatic indexing, memory for 99 zero points, adjustable lighting and a memory stick.
The presetter is available in two models: the model 400, which has a measuring range of 15.75" × 15.75" (400 × 400 mm), and the model 600, which has a measuring range of 15.75" × 23.62" (400 × 600 mm).
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
