Our ‘Top of the range’ Amon Ra Tool Presetting machine has been developed from the ground up as the ‘top level’ specification option for our new generation of advanced tool presetting machines. Compared to the lower specification models, all quite capable in their own right, the construction, performance and design (particularly the electronic and software capability) provides considerable advantages: Designed completely free-standing on its own integral base; Amon Ra features ground granite and stainless steel construction combined with a large Twin Screen digital camera system with full industrial PC architecture – these electronics and software provide operational and functional simplicity that is second to none. The high precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and utilises a one piece cartridge with full mechanical tool clamping (pneumatically drawing the tool pullstud into the taper cone) – eliminating the need for adaptors and the errors associated with their use. The construction of this system has to be ‘seen to be believed’ and is more akin to a machine tool spindle than a tool presetter spindle! All axis movements on the Amon Ra (like it’s sister the 66B) are servo controlled with absolutely no operator contact with the column. This drastically increases machine accuracy and repeatability over similar machines which incorporate the movement via a manual handle mounted on the column. Integrated within the innovative software package is a complete tool management system and network port. Working via your DNC system Q-Presetter TDM Software converts measured tool data into CNC code for direct loading into the machine controller and associated tool offset pages. Further capabilities include the ability to import and export .DXF CAD profiles for detailed checking and comparison on the twin screen camera system.
