METROL specialize in manufacturing Tool Setters & Precision Positioning Switches

Ultra precision position Swhitches  Metrol

Tool Setters for CNC Machining Centers [T series]

Improve machine accuracy of
CNC machine tools!

Tool setters can be used to detect wear and breakage and correct thermal distortion as well as to preset tool length.

Reasons to choose Metrol’s Tool setters

Maintaining high machining accuracy of CNC machining centers!

Corrected tool wear caused by cutting and thermal displacement of the tool length due to differences between daytime and nighttime temperatures by a precision of 1μm.
Machining accuracy will be always maintained within tolerance.

Improve productivity by enhancing net working rate of machine tools.

Detect accidental tool breakage in machining process, and stop the machine.

Increase productivity and net working rate by avoiding machining problems in nightlong unmanned operation.

Prevent defective products.

When the blade is pressed against the contact, high-accuracy signal is output to the CNC or PC.

It is no longer necessary to repeat the process of trial grinding, measurement calculation, and input to the CNC, thereby eliminating the need for expertise in tool setting while also eliminating any concern over damaging the machine due to setting errors.

A wide variety of dedicated types depending on the intended use.
