Laser-Tool Setter LTS35.65-TC

LTS35.65-TC – the hybrid laser tool setter

The laser tool setter TC for non-contact tool measurement and efficient control of tool wear or tool breakage. Thanks to the integrated tool setter, the third axis can be determined precisely. Thus, quick temperature compensation can be carried out at any time. The TC leaves no wishes for functionality unfulfilled; it combines the standard laser with a 1D tool setter
