Our top of the range E68L Presetting machine has been developed from the ground up as the 'top level' specification option for our new generation of advanced tool presetting machines. Compared to the lower specification models, all quite capable in their own right, the construction, performance and design (particularly the electronic and software capability) provides considerable advantages.

Designed completely free-standing on its own integral base; E68L features ground granite and stainless steel construction combined with a large Twin Screen digital camera system with full industrial PC architecture – these electronics and software provide operational and functional simplicity that is second to none.

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!

  • All axis movements are servo controlled with absolutely no operator contact with the column.

  • Integrated within the innovative software package is a complete tool management system and network port.

  • DXF CAD profiles import and export function.

Axis Movemements

All axis movements on the E68L 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.

Software Package 

Integrated within the innovative software package is a complete tool management system and network port. Working via your DNC system our software, as standard, converts measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages.


Further capabilities include the ability to import and export .DXF CAD profiles for detailed checking and comparison on the twin screen camera system.
