NIKKEN E450N Tool Presetter (Option)

Our new E450N Tool Presetting machine has been developed as the second level option for our new generation of advanced tool presetting machines.


Designed to be bench mounted the E450N features a ground granite base and column, stainless steel construction and ergonomic design combined with large (212mm x 160mm) TFT Vision System. This system is combined with a Linux based TFT Touch Screen which provides full operator control and selection of options and functions via an intuitive menu system – these new electronics provide operational and functional simplicity that is second to none.

The precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and utilises a one piece cartridge - eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use. The new system also provides a vacuum clamping system for positive location and security of the tool location within the spindle.

Also included with our E450N model is our ToolingUp software package. Working via your DNC system ToolingUp converts measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages.

Technical Features:

  • Measuring range: diameter max. 400 mm (radius 200 mm); height max. 500 mm
  • Machine structure in stainless-steel offering high mechanical resistance and long life.
  • Base and column made of natural granite: linearity max error 4 µm/Mt – certification with Taylor Hobson res.1 µm/Mt. electronic millesimal level.
  • ISO / BT / HSK / VDI /Capto etc. Interchangeable rotating spindle-holder (to be specified) max run-out error < 4 µm.
