Our E46LTW has recently gone through a redesign, with a brand new concept ergonomic platform completely free-standing on an integral base.

The NEW E46LTW features oversized ground granite and stainless steel construction combined and equipped with a 22’’ HD touch-screen monitor. The touch screen system is innovatively portrait mounted for easy viewing and operation. The screen layout and simple to use icon-based software design, which is split into two distinct sections, not only displays visible images of the current tool and profile but additionally allows access to the full functionality and new capabilities of the software and integral tool management system.

E46LTW is equipped with the original camera as on the E46L model but with the addition of a secondary high-resolution swivel camera (60X magnification with, in addition, 2X and 4X digital zoom capability) to allow and facilitate detailed inspection and geometry functions from both the side and top of the tool profile. This additional capability is particularly useful not only for CNC machinists but also benefits tool manufacturers to precisely measure linear and geometrical features of the tool profile.

  • The precision Spindle System is fully interchangeable and can accommodate cartridges for all types of machine tapers covering HSK, ISO, VDI, BT CAPTO and more.

  • Featuring outputs including several USB ports and a network capability. Allowing 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.

  • This system allows the Presetter to identify each spindle cartridge as it is loaded and pinpoints or suggests the correct machine origins, whenever the spindle is changed.
