The E346i Tool Presetting machine moves the benchmark for ‘entry-level’ tool presetting and is a welcome addition to our latest generation of advanced tool presetting machines.

Re-engineered from the ground up and featuring completely new mechanics and electronics the E346i features a ground granite base and column, electro-welded and de-tensioned steel construction with an ergonomic design. 

  • The precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and utilises a one piece cartridge - eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use.

  • Working via your DNC system the software converts measured tool data into CNC code for transferring via your network into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages.

  • Includes a new larger 9" TFT LCD Touch Screen that provides full operator control via an intuitive icon system allowing functional simplicity that is second to none.

Software Package

Also included with our E346i model is our TD346 software package. Working via your DNC system the software converts measured tool data into CNC code for transferring via your network into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages (First twenty uses for TD346 are free – an additional Dongle is available as an option).
