Automatic Tool Changers (ATC) in machining centers are designed to help improve the machine’s tool carry capacity, and in turn, overall productivity. An ATC is designed to work with numerous tools, and can change large and heavy tools quickly to reduce any amount of unproductive time.
One of the most productive features in the successful use of the tool changer is a precise CNC broken tool sensor. This is installed within the ATC, and helps in broken tool detection. If you are looking for a fast, versatile, and long-lasting broken tool sensor, then Techna-Tool Inc.’s BK Mikro TK8A is the solution for you.
