The average job package requires 30 tool assemblies, but some jobs require as many as 75. About 65,000 tools are run through the presetter annually. Even though a presetter may

    and shop rate, to get an idea of the payback period on a presetter investment. Consider, for example, a shop running four CNC machines two shifts a day, with a shop rate of $80 per hour. If each machine requires one hour of tool setup per shift, the shop is losing $640 per day, or $160,000 per year
  • Presetting Pays Dividends
    Many shops are moving away from centralized toolroom operations and opting instead for distributed tool presetting on the shop floor. The presetting machines available today are accurate, easy to use and provide closed-loop tool compensation on the CNC machine tool, saving significant time during
