The Zoller Venturion tool presetting machine is designed with Bosch pneumatics, THK guideways, Uhing drives and Heidenhain glass scales. CNC drives for both the X and Z axes as well as an autofocusing spindle combine to enable micron-precise measurements. Featuring the company’s ACE spindle, change-over accuracy is said to be 1 micron. 

The company’s Pilot 3.0 software is included on the machine, enabling the measurement of complex tool geometries. The eQ one-hand control handle featured on the machine enables ergonomic maneuvering of the optics carrier. With data output, users send their tool offset information directly to the machine control from the software.


  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Raising the Bar with Ballbar Testing

    Few manufacturing companies rely on ballbar testing to maintain machine tool accuracy as thoroughly as Silfex. Now, advanced training and a move to a Renishaw QC20-W wireless system have enabled the company to take the benefits of ballbar testing to a higher level.
