MAPAL claims the portal construction used in its UNISET-P tool setting fixture provides users with unimpeded access to tools during setting. The measuring camera and backlight source are integrated into the pillars of the portal, so as not to restrict user access.
The company says the fixture’s portal construction provides a high level of thermal and mechanical stability, to ensure precision and repeatability in setting operations. Universal and non-proprietary the UNISET-P fixture is suitable for setting tools of almost any type, including fixed tools, PCD facemills, PCD-tools, tools with ISO-elements, solid carbide tools, actuating tools and turning tools. It can accommodate tools up to 500mm in diameter and up to 600mm in length. Additional features can be added to the system.
