The new E346+ is a massive update over the entry level E346i tool presetter. Designed to be bench mounted (optional base available) the E346+ features a structure in electro-welded and de-tensioned steel along with our unique Solid granite column and base to guarantee and maintain maximum accuracy.

The precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and can accommodate cartridges for all types of machine tapers covering HSK, ISO, VDI, BT, etc.

The E346+ features a new and innovative automatic measuring routine allowing the operator to simply rotate the tool through 360 degrees after which the software captures and locks the maximum measured radius/diameter and length values of all the cutting edges. The software is displayed and interacted with via a 15” TFT touch screen mounted vertically for easy viewing and operation. Simple icon and graphically driven menus enable the operator to quickly and intuitively manage all tool measurement and inspection modes, in addition a range of auxiliary capabilities are available such as creating CNC Machine origins and tool sets.

The Presetter features numerous outputs including several USB ports and a network capability. This allows for the transfer of post processed tool offset data from the tool management system, via a network or even memory stick, to the numerical control of individual machine tools (depending on both the network and CNC controller capability).
