Radio-wave Tool Setter RWT35.50


The Radio-wave Tool Setter RWT35.50 for vertical lathes, large milling machines and machining centers enables variable positioning of the tool setter, to fit the task at hand. Through use of a magnetic mount, the tool setter can be placed in wide range of table positions. Our patent pending system delivers highly accurate and repeatable re-positioning of the tool setter. With wireless operation and no permanently fixed hardware, use of the RWT35.50 does not restrict or interfere with the machining area in any way. Now tool measurement can be done flexibly with a single instrument, including in machines operating with alternating machining stations.
