Laser Tool Setter LTS35.65

LTS35.65 – the standard Laser Tool Setter

The standard laser tool setter for non-contact tool measurement, for reliable and quick machine setup, tool wear and tool breakage control. A low cost system for the majority of measuring tasks on tools from Ø 0.030 mm, with significant advantages compared to previous common standard instruments. Compared to the conventional systems, the electrical connection is significantly simpler. An air curtain connection from the on-board pneumatics is all that is required in the majority of cases. Only two spare M functions are required in the control, an aspect that simplifies the electrical installation and keeps down the machine-related costs and effort.
