Our 68B Tool Presetting machine has been developed as the 'entry-level' higher spec option for our advanced tool presetting machines. Compared to the rest of our presetter model range the construction, design and capabilities offer considerable advantages.

Designed to be completely free-standing on its own integral base; the 68B features ground granite and stainless steel construction combined with a large digital camera and touch screen menu system – these new electronics provide operational and functional simplicity that is second to none.

All axis movements on the 68B are servo-controlled with absolutely no operator contact with the column. This drastically increases machine accuracy and repeatability over similar machines which incorporate the movement via a manual handle mounted on the column.

  • The 15" Colour Touch Screen on the 68B is part of the UBUNTU Linux Operating System that includes the ability to zoom in via the high resolution camera.

  • Working via your existing network and DNC system, our software, as standard, provides the capability to convert measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages.

  • The high precision Spindle System is fully interchangeable and utilises a one-piece cartridge with full mechanical tool clamping, eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use.

Spindle System 

Featuring the ultimate high precision spindle system that is fully interchangeable and utilises a one-piece cartridge with full mechanical tool clamping (pneumatic system) capable of clamping ISO/BT, HSK and Polygon/Capto tool shanks - eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use. The construction of this system is more akin to a machine tool spindle than a tool presetter spindle!
