SPC Innovations Inc. features a tool detector with an electronic control for more flexibility in sensing broken tools and presence of chips on tools before they can cause damage. Sensing a broken drill before the cycle starts may save breaking a reamer or tap and can save users from sending defective parts to a customer.

The new broken tool detector can be used with tools down to 0.004” (0.10 mm) diameter, has bi-directional operation, returns to programmable starting position at the beginning of each cycle, capable of monitoring two different tools in the same cycle, extremely small for use in very tight tooling areas, also check for presence of tool, part or chips. 

The electronic tool detector joins the DF-16 mini diameter probe and DF 110 pneumatic broken tool detector, for miniature automatic gauging and broken tool detection on all automatic machines.
