Laser Tool Setter LTS35.60

LTS35.60 – the premium Laser Tool Setter

Premium laser tool setter for dynamic tool measurement in the high-end sector. The non-contact precision measurement makes possible dynamic length and diameter checking on almost every tool from Ø 0.008 mm. Design, concept and construction as well the quality of the optics used ensure straightforward alignment, calibration, reliable setup and operation of the laser unit. The stainless steel housing as well as the largely maintenance-free laser optics and the straightforward handling make this system ideally suited to workshop use
