Elbo Controlli, a presetting solutions company that distributes through Koma Precision Inc., has designed E46L and E46L TW tool presetters, tailored specifically to customer’s requirements of a powerful tool measuring system at an economical price point, the company says.

The models feature an increased measuring range up to 600 mm on the Z axis, a 22” HD touchscreen display along with optical autofocus and new electronic control. These models have been redesigned with a larger granite base for the best measurement accuracy and repeatability.

The high precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and uses a one-piece cartridge with full mechanical tool clamping (pneumatically drawing the tool pull stud into the taper cone), eliminating the need for adapters and errors associated with their use. The E46L and E46L TW are also equipped with Elbo Controlli’s spindle-holder identification system (SP-ID). This technology is designed to enable the presetter to automatically identify the spindle holder after each replacement, eliminating operator error.

Elbo Controlli’s advanced tool management software package offers a user menu that allows operators to quickly and easily measure and save tool data. The software allows operators to create CNC machine origins and send offset information directly to the machine tool control. The software comes RFID ready to measure data to Balluff systems.

The E46L is equipped with an advanced camera system designed to measure and inspect tools quickly and easily. The E46L TW model is equipped with two auxiliary cameras for inspection of the helix and tool face.
