Tool Presetter Enhances Efficiency and Quality of Precision Part Manufacturing 

SST offers the SST 4200 tool presetter for boosting efficiency and profitability in high-precision part manufacturing. Built and designed to exacting specifications, the SST 4200 equips shops with improved precision through tool measurement accuracy of ±0.003 mm (0.00012"), and user-friendly features that help eliminate human error. 

"Working with Zoller, we have engineered and specified a tool presetter that gives precision part manufacturers a significant competitive edge," said Darrell Johnson, Product Manager of milling consumables at SST. "The SST 4200 provides ideal accuracy and reliability for uninterrupted production within high-precision markets, such as aerospace, precision production machining and mold-shop environments. By streamlining shop floor efficiency and eliminating human error, the device helps minimize machine downtime and increase process stability for lower costs, shorter delivery times and improved quality." 

Constructed from heavy-duty aircraft aluminum, the SST 4200 reduces errors caused by thermal expansion. Its spindle features actuated clamping of toolholders, similar to that of a machine tool, providing optimal measurement accuracy with spindle concentricity of 0.002 mm (0.000079"). 

Designed with enhanced image processing and dynamic crosshair technologies, the SST 4200 captures and measures critical features of the tool cutting edge in the micron range. Its fully automatic X, Z and C axes and an auto-focusing camera enable fast measurement, setting and testing that help eliminate human error. Additionally, an intuitive touchscreen CNC control features several user-friendly features that require minimal training and provide easy access to tool data, photographs, drawings and 3-D images via a scalable tool management system. 

To facilitate tool traceability within shop environments, the SST 4200 has a standard thermo-label printer and can be equipped with an optional RFID system. The device is capable of interfacing with other tool data management systems to track tooling across systems and processes, allowing robots, machines and other equipment to read and write stored data for more reliable, versatile and efficient unattended processing of high-precision components.
