Big Kaiser Speroni Essentia

Big Kaiser’s Speroni STP Essentia tool presetting and measuring system performs measurements next to machine tools. It enables users to measure tools offline and has user-friendly controls designed to optimize tool measurement operations. The MaxP runout function, base post processor and entry-level tool database are included in the Essentia control.

Presetters measure the cutting edges of tools to ensure they match job specifications and are ready for use in the machine. Adjustments that could take up to 15 minutes can be made offline in less than one minute on a presetter, the company says, allowing the machine to continue cutting.
