CNC Auto Tool Height Set: Automatically sets Tool height offsets

Automatic Tool Height Measurement

An invaluable tool for a wide variety of CNC machines. Quickly, easily and accurately setup tool heights in the tool library with a push of a button. The CENTROID TT1,TT2 and TT-4 automatic tool height offset touch off accessories are plug and play. Now setting up tools is a joy not a chore. No more gauge blocks, no more paper, no more repeated measurements. Save time and increase accuracy. Fully integrated into the CNC control tool library menu, just select the tool and press auto measure to set the tool height automatically. Makes measuring all types of tools faster and more accurate. Find the longest insert in a multiple insert tool quickly. Once you start using a tool touch off you'll wonder why you waited to purchase this time saving tool. Measure just one tool or a whole group of tools at once. Can also be used in the middle of a job to measure a replacement tool. Integrated with an Automatic tool changer for batch tool measurement. CENTROID manufactures two types of Touch Off devices, the TT-1 which is a conductive design and the TT-2 and TT-4 is a mechanical design for spindle with non conductive bearings (ceramic) or tooling that doesn't conduct (diamond).

Auto Tool Setter. TT1 sets Tool heights automatically. fast and accurate.
TT-1 (Conductive)

TT-1 Conductive Tool Measurement Device (Part #10220)

Set up your tools in a quarter of the time it would normally take! If you often machine short-run parts and are always setting up and tearing down for a new job, the TT-1 Auto tool set will save you tons of time while more accurately setting your tool height offsets. With the TT-1 you can create more parts per hour since the tool setup is so much faster. You'll even save time when you have to replace a dull tool with a new one in the middle of a job. The TT-1 is completely automatic. Press "measure" and the tool will automatically touch off the TT-1 and set the tool height offset in the tool library. Requires conductive tooling and spindle.

Mechanical Tool Height Offset Measurement
TT-2 (Mechanical)

TT-2 Mechanical tool height measurement (Part #12486)

Operates exactly like the TT-1 but this design is mechanical in nature. The TT-2 works with all types of tooling and spindles. The non-conductive mechanical design is compatible with machines that have non-conductive ceramic spindle bearings and with all types of tools such as non-conductive diamond tooling.  Backward compatible with most CENTROID CNC controls that have a black probe plug (cnc7,cnc10 and cnc11 based systems).  Uses same cable and connectors as our DP-4 and DP-7 probes. There are three base mounting options, magnetic, screw down or tool holder. The Carbide surface is also replaceable and has a 4-48 thread. Download TT-2 brochure click here.
