Product Announcement from Renishaw
The new TRS2 is a cost-effective broken tool detection system. Its ToolWise™ electronics have been enhanced to make detection of small, dark tools more reliable, saving time and money.
The unique tool recognition electronics determine whether a tool is present by analysing the reflective light pattern from the rotating tool. Random light patterns created by coolant and swarf are ignored, eliminating the chance of failing to detect a broken tool due to coolant obscuring the beam.

Principal application: High speed, non-contact tool breakage detection of solid tools on drill-tap machines, VMCs, and HMCs, including machines where gun drills are part of the tooling suite.
