Metrol Precision: The Touch Master CNC Tool Eye Difference


Exploring the Innovative Features of MetroL Precision’s Touch Master CNC Tool Eye

Welcome to Tool Eye, Inc – Touch Master, where precision in CNC machining is not just a goal, but a guarantee.

Since 1995, we have been a leading supplier, offering Metrol-compatible CNC tool sensors. 

Known in the industry as CNC Touch Probes, CNC Tool Presetters, and more, our Touch Master CNC Tool Eye stands as a pinnacle of accuracy, reliability, and innovation in the machining world.

Why Choose Touch Master CNC Tool Eye

Unmatched Precision and Repeatability

In the realm of CNC machining, precision is paramount. At Tool Eye, Inc – Touch Master, we have consistently delivered this with the Touch Master CNC Tool Eye, a product synonymous with unparalleled precision and repeatability.

Engineered to meet and exceed Metrol standards, this tool sensor guarantees micron-level accuracy, a crucial factor in minimizing machining defects and downtime.

The standout feature of the Touch Master CNC Tool Eye is its ability to maintain consistent precision. 

With guaranteed repeatability of 1ÎĽm, it ensures that every measurement is as accurate as the last. 

This level of precision is not just desirable but necessary in industries where even the slightest deviation can lead to significant errors and increased costs.

Enhanced Productivity and Efficiency

In today’s fast-paced industrial environments, productivity and efficiency are not just goals, but necessities. 

The Touch Master CNC Tool Eye streamlines the machining process by automating tool measurement.

This automation reduces the manual setup time significantly, by as much as 90%, enhancing overall productivity.

By eliminating repetitive and time-consuming tasks, the Touch Master allows machinists to focus on more critical aspects of their work, thus maximizing operational efficiency. 

This increase in productivity does not come at the cost of precision; in fact, the Touch Master ensures that high accuracy is maintained throughout the machining process.

Versatility in Applications

The Touch Master CNC Tool Eye is not limited to a single type of CNC machine or application.

Its versatility makes it ideal for a wide range of machinery, including machine tools, robots, and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.

Whether it’s for small milling machines or large machining centers, our Touch Master Inc. tool eye provides the same level of precision and reliability.

This versatility extends to various applications within the machining process, such as tool length measurement, setting the origin of blades in CNC lathes, and compensating for thermal displacement. 

It’s a one-size-fits-all solution that caters to a diverse range of machining needs.

Durability and Reliability

Durability is a key aspect of any industrial equipment, and the Touch Master CNC Tool Eye is built to last. 

With an IP67 protection rating, it is designed to withstand harsh machining environments, where exposure to coolant, chips, and other abrasive materials is common.

This durability ensures that the tool sensor operates reliably over a long period, reducing the need for frequent replacements and maintenance.

The Touch Master’s reliability is further evidenced by its low false detection rate.

Unlike non-contact sensors, which can be prone to errors due to coolant splatter or mist, the Touch Master’s touch sensor method provides stable and consistent detection.

This ensures that machining operations are not hindered by sensor inaccuracies.

Customization Options

Understanding that each machining operation is unique, we offer a range of customization options for the Touch Master CNC Tool Eye. 

Customers can choose from various contact-surface sizes, measurement directions, and even detachable contact-surfaces for cost reduction. 

This level of customization ensures that the tool sensor can be tailored to fit the specific requirements of different machining operations, enhancing its effectiveness and utility.

The combination of unmatched precision, enhanced productivity, versatility, durability, and extensive customization options makes the Touch Master CNC Tool Eye an indispensable tool in modern CNC machining. 

It’s not just a tool sensor; it’s a solution that addresses the myriad challenges faced in precision machining.
