Elbo Controlli, whose products are distributed through Koma Precision Inc., is continuing its advancement into the tool management market with a new generation of tool presetters. The newly designed E46L and E46L TW are tailored specifically to customer’s requirements of a powerful tool measuring system at a price point that no other solution can match.
The new models feature an increased measuring range up to 600mm on the Z-axis, a 22” HD touchscreen display along with optical autofocus and new electronic control. These models have been redesigned with a larger granite base for the best measurement accuracy and repeatability.
The high precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and utilizes a one piece cartridge with full mechanical tool clamping (pneumatically drawing the tool pull stud into the taper cone), eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use. The E46L and E46L TW are also equipped with Elbo Controlli’s proprietary spindle-holder identification system (SP-ID). This technology enables the presetter to automatically identify the spindle holder after each replacement, eliminating operator error.
New for 2016 is Elbo Controlli’s advanced tool management software package. CNC machine origin management and adapters. The intuitive user menu allows operators to quickly and easily measure and save tool data. The software allows operators to create unique CNC machine origins and send offset information directly to the machine tool control. In addition, the software comes RFID ready to measure data to Balluff systems.
The E46L is equipped with an advanced camera system to measure and inspect tools quickly and easily. The E46L TW model is equipped with 2 auxiliary cameras for inspection of the helix and face of the tool.
