Pick Up Tool Setter IRPT35.40

IRPT35.40 - the tool measuring system stored in the tool magazine!

With the Pick Up Tool Setter IRPT35.40, tools can be measured in length and diameter on the machine. The Docking Station can be fitted anywhere on the machine table and enables automatic or manual exchange of the tool setter. This means there is nothing protruding out to restrict the working surface. One infrared receiver is used for both touch probe and tool setter.
