The Hathor SIX Tool Presetting machine is designed completely free-standing on its own integral base; Hathor SIX 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.

Featuring a new electronic control: a powerful fanless PC with Linux operating system for the integrated management of the functions of measurement / inspection tools, machine origins and toolsets. Ease of use thanks to the integrated touch screen.

  • 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, TdSIX converts measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages.

Spindle System

Featuring a Spindle System that is fully interchangeable and utilises a one-piece cartridge - eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use. Incorporated within the spindle is our innovative universal mechanical clamping system with electronic tool clamping confirmation (also now available as an option to suit HSK tool shanks).

Software Package 

Also included with our Hathor SIX model is our TdSIX software package. Working via your DNC system, TdSIX converts measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages.
