Improvements from the E460N The increased cross section and size of the column gives added stability up to 600mm and this theme is continued with revised axis carriages that also deliver increased reliability. The mechanical axis brake and control system have been completely updated from the previous model and finally, and most noticeably, the original pendant & operator panel are now combined in to one single touch screen system that is located away from the camera and column. The latest E460N 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 E460N features a ground granite base and column, stainless steel construction and ergonomic design combined with a TFT 15” colour touch screen. The Touch Screen 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. One major new feature of the E460N is the ability to rotate the spindle/tool through 360 degrees and the presetter automatically saves and displays the maximum radius/diameter and length for the tool. The precision spindle system is fully interchangeable and utilises a one piece cartridge (backward compatible with the previous E450N model) – 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. Included with the E460N presetter is our exclusive TdSix software package.Linked via USB connection and running on a secondary PC, TdSix provides basic offline tool management function and storage for individual machine tools and their associated sets of tools.
