METROL specialize in manufacturing Tool Setters & Precision Positioning Switches

Ultra precision position Swhitches  Metrol

Tool Setters for CNC Lathes [H series]

Improve machine accuracy of
CNC Lathes!

Tool setters can be used for detecting wear and breakage and correcting thermal distortion as well as for precise blade positioning.

Reasons to choose Metrol’s Tool Setters for CNC Lathes

Maintaining high machining accuracy of CNC machining centers!

Tool setters make it possible to correct tool wear caused by turning process and thermal expansion of tool length due to differences between daytime and nighttime temperatures with a precision of 1μm.

Improve productivity by enhancing net working rate of machine tools!

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

Improve 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.
