All tools are preset, measured and checked (runout and tool tip inspection) on the alfa-set unit prior to use on the CNC machine tools.
Machine tool availability is optimized; machine tool downtime is reduced to a minimum. Time for measur- ing on the machine is completely eliminated. The machine tools are fully available to perform their in- tended function of production!
Test components and reject costs are eliminated, as production within the required tolerances already starts with the first component.
Cost savings of over EUR 25,000.- a year are realis- tic by presetting tools in a machinery department that has 2-3 machines or more. In addition, tool wear can be reduced by up to 20% ideally by presetting tools to operate fully automatically with image processing and without influencing by the operator.
The alfa-set will be working cost-free for you in less than 6 months!
