Tool presetter for high-precision part manufacture
- Published: December 29, 2017
SST has introduced the SST 4200 tool presetter for high-precision part manufacturing.
The SST 4200 provides improved precision through tool measurement accuracy of ±0.003mm (0.00012 inches), and user-friendly features that help eliminate human error.
Constructed from heavy-duty aircraft aluminum, the SST 4200 reduces errors caused by thermal expansion. Its spindle features actuated clamping of tool holders, similar to that of a machine tool, providing optimal measurement accuracy with spindle concentricity of 0.002mm (0.000079 inches).
Designed with superior image processing and dynamic cross-hair technologies, the SST 4200 captures and measures critical features of the tool cutting edge in the micron range. Its fully automatic X, Z and C axes and an auto-focusing camera enable fast measurement, setting and testing that help eliminate human error.
Additionally, an intuitive touch-screen CNC control boasts several user-friendly features that require minimal training and provide easy access to tool data, photographs, drawings and 3-D images via a scalable tool management system.
