New TLO setter
« on: June 30, 2013, 10:46:20 AM »
]We have spent the past eight months since the introduction of the original TLOsetter doing a lot of design, development, and testing of an improved model of a Tool Length Offset measuring device.  Coupling this with feedback from our current users, we are now able to offer a new product for your use to accurately and quickly measure and automatically record this data.

The original TLOsetter is still a great tool, highly accurate and a very economical way to set and record TLO’s but it is best used with center-cutting and pointed tools. The addition of the TLOsetter II increases functionality due to an increased diameter contact area so it can be used with virtually any tool, such as non-center-cutting endmills, flycutters or facemills, of any diameter. The TLOsetter II is also more convenient to use since it doesn’t need to be bolted to the table, it can simply be placed anywhere convenient, and is easily moved when measuring a tool that doesn’t have its lowest point at the center, such as an inserted facemill.  Furthermore, this new instrument is compatible with the touch-off routine that Automatic Tool Changers use.  Remember this device not only automatically measures the tool length but also automatically enters the data in the Mach3* Tool Table for automated use in all your G code programs.  *This device is made exclusively for use on systems using Mach3 controller software.

We are offering the TLOsetter II at an introductory price of $215.00 USD, continental USA shipping included.

Does the Wildhorse probe automatically enter Tool Length Offset measurements in the tool table?  This saves a lot of time and more importantly avoids fat-finger entry errors.  If it does it’s a great deal (assuming it’s reasonably accurate), if it doesn’t, not so much!

I believe the macro is what is responsible for the actions taken upon a touch of the tool setter or probe. You would have to install the macro prior to use.

Most likely not but Mach probably has some anyway. I know MSM has some pretty extensive probing routines.
