The DF-404 broken tool detector with electronic control from SPC Innovations Inc. is designed for higher flexibility in sensing broken tools and the presence of chips on tools before they can cause damage. Sensing a broken drill before the cycle starts can help avoid expensive tooling crashes and can even help to avoid sending defective parts to the customer.

Features of the broken tool detector include tool detection as small as 0.010” (0.25 mm); bi-directional operation; position and force sensing; monitoring of one or two tools in the same cycle; small, 16-mm diameter body for tight tooling areas; and presence detection of tool, part or chips.
