Tool presetters and tool setters are very important, essential to the effective operation and performance fo CNC machines. Presetters, which are tool measurement devices, help shops save time, control runout, and improve tool management. There are a variety of ways to record and store measurement tools: some presetters require you to manually record the information, while others computerize it. Some use barcodes, and the highest end models used RFID chips. Furthermore, medium and high end presetters have the ability to measure the shape of the tool profile. This includes dimensions, radius and angles, as well as its offset.
CNC machines offer increased productivity and flexibility and tool presetters allow a CNC machine to work accurately without downtime. Overall, tool presetters and tool setters can help you to keep your tools organized. And overall, machining shops that use presetters enjoy a range of benefits even if they don’t literally “preset” their tools.However, prior to purchasing a tool presetter you will want to do some research. Tool presetters range from simple to high end, so you will want to decide which version is best for you and which is most appropriate to your needs.
Keep in mind, when buying tool setters and tool presetters you may specifically want to look into purchasing setters and presetters made in the USA. Many manufacturing jobs are actually returning to the US. In fact, reshoring, the return of previously offshored jobs and manufacturing, is due in part to the high shipping costs, supply chain logistics, poor quality and rising labor costs associated with offshoring. Buying tool setters and tool presetters made in the US is a great way to buy a high quality product while also supporting the US economy.
