Seco-Carboloy has improved its popular line of PWB tool presetting machines to include digital imaging features. The digital technology is available on all PWB models including the TM4, TM10 and TM250.

Using this digital technology, the company was able to eliminate common judgment errors and decrease presetting cycle times. The company claims that the resulting improvement in tool height accuracy increases machine uptime and productivity, and facilitates better tool inspection and measurement.

To further use this technology advancement, the company offers two factory-installed options, T-CAM and E-PRO. T-CAM, available on both TM10 and TM250 presetter models, uses a camera and touchscreeen to provide several different measurements simultaneously. Flying access measurement technology and intelligent cross-hairs provide measurements on a single tool as well as tools with multiple inserts like milling cutters.

TM4 is a motorized presetter with a 150-mm (5.91") projector to provide 20 × magnification on large tools, both in diameter and length. TM4 uses up to 15 measuring points for accurate circle and angle measurements and can accommodate tool diameters of up to 23.62" and heights of just under 36". The economical TM10 is a contact presetter using a dial indicator that can set or measure tools with a maximum diameter of 12.20" and a tool height of 19.69". TM250 non-contact presetter eliminates the possibility of tool tip damage. The bright 110-mm (4.33") projector provides 20 × magnification and is used on tools with diameters of up to 11.80" and heights of 19.69".
