Elbo Controlli-NIKKEN Amon Ra-TW Presetter

This top of the range tool presetting machine has been developed as a more cost effective equivalent to competitor tool inspection machines.

Completely free-standing on its own integral base; Amon Ra-TW features ground granite and stainless steel construction. All movements are servo drived guaranteeing ultimate precision. The single high-definition screen is linked to two outstanding optical cameras with digital zoom capabilities. The system employs industrial PC architecture providing operational and functional simplicity that is simple to learn and even incorporates additional capabilities focussed specifically on tool geometry.

The patented precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and utilises a one piece cartridge - eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use. Incorporated within the spindle is an innovative universal pneumatic clamping system.

Integrated within the innovative software package is a complete tool management system and network port. Working via your DNC system this can convert measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into your machine controller and associated tool offset pages. Also included with the system as standard is full WI-FI connectivity.

Further capabilities, on both cameras, include the ability to import and export .dxf CAD profiles for detailed checking and comparison on the full high-definition 23” screen.

90 degree swivel secondary camera system (TWin)

  • The innovative 90º swivel secondary camera system allows any cutting tools to be viewed from the top (tool end) and also from the side of the tool
  • It is possible to measure the tool in the traditional manner with the traditional first camera and then to check / inspect the geometry of the tool at up to an incredible 70x zoom with the second swivel camera
  • Using digital enhancements on both cameras it is possible to achieve digital zoom of 56x  & 112x on the first camera plus 140x and 280x on the secondary swivel camera
