Available from Koma Precision, Elbo Controlli’s Hathor Six floor model and Sethy Six bench model tool presetters offer an increased axis-measuring range to 600 mm (23.62"). The presetters feature a fixed-target function in micrometric registration of the X and Z axes, with manual control of the C axis available as an option. A double system of prismatic rails enables X-axis movement with three double-recirculating ball-bearing sliding blocks, while the Z axis features a monorail with one sliding block. Axis movements include manual rapid and manual micrometric adjustments. A ground granite column and base are designed for improved movement accuracy. The spindle body is assembled on spring roller cages and optical scales, and the precision spindle system is fully interchangeable with a one-piece cartridge said to reduce errors by eliminating the need for adapters.
 
A camera system includes a single C-MOS image sensor that manages both inspection and measurement using a double lighting source. A Linux-based TFT touchscreen enables full operator control. The presetters also are equipped with Elbo Controlli’s ToolingUp software package for converting measured tool data into CNC code. The code can then be loaded directly into the machine controller and associated tool-offset pages.
