Entry-level tool presetters, such as Parlec’s Origin line of bench-mounted devices offers an affordable way for small shops to integrate tool presetting into their process. They are designed to provide basic video tool measuring and inspection functionality at an economical price.

But larger operations that are already leveraging tool presetting can also benefit by deploying multiple presetters throughout their facilities. This can reduce the amount of travel for machine tool setup personnel and eliminate time wasted waiting for a presetter to become available.

Parlec showed its Origin line at IMTS. These presetters provide 20-inch measuring height, 10-inch measuring diameter, 0.001-mm fine adjustment, 70× video measuring and a rapid quick-positioning handle with electronic braking.
