BK Mikro – Scanner Types and Specifications – Part 2

In the last blog post, we had a general discussion about the BK Mikro tool detection system. The blog also discussed the first three types of scanners that are specially designed for the BK Mikro system. As a continuation, this blog discusses the remaining three types of BK Mikro scanners available at Techna-Tool.

  • TK94A/TK94RL:TK94RL variant Available in two variants, TK94 scanners are ideal for applications in hostile environments consisting of a large quantity of coolants. Both TK94A and TK94RL models are perfect for checking tools in lathes, transfer lines, and gun drilling machines, among others. Consider choosing TK94A variant when tool scanning is required in one direction, either clockwise or counter clockwise. However, the TK94RL variant would be the best choice when scanning in both directions (Clockwise and counter clockwise without stopping) which is helpful for cost savings by only needing one scanner for 2 tools.
