Designed to be more cost-effective than other decentralized tool measurement machines, Koma Precision’s bench-mounted Larth tool presetter features a ground granite base and column, stainless-steel construction and a 5.7" TFT LCD touchscreen. The system provides full operator control and enables selection of options and functions via an intuitive icon system, the company says. A precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and uses a one-piece cartridge to eliminate the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use.
The presetter system also includes a DPP software package that converts measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages.
