The History of Omega TMM: Formerly the Presetter Division of Parlec, Inc.
Omega Tool Measuring Machines, located in Fairport, NY, has a long history of building the world’s most accurate, repeatable and reliable tool presetters. Formerly the presetter division Parlec Inc., Omega TMM is dedicated to building USA made, industry leading tool presetters. Tool presetters were introduced to the machining market to allow end-users to accurately and efficiently measure the dimensions of their tool assemblies in an offline measuring machine. Before the invention of tool presetters, measurement of tool assemblies was done exclusively by touching off the tool in the mill or machining center. The processes of touching off tools are inefficient and take time away from machining parts. This inefficiency reduces the number of parts that can be produced, limiting the potential production capacity of manufacturers worldwide.
The company is looking forward to another successful year and will be displaying their “Made in the USA” presetters at several trade shows including the Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS 2019) in April, EASTEC (the premier east coast manufacturing event) and the Northwest Machine Tool Expo in May, WESTEC in September, and Wichita Industrial Trade Show in October. Omega Tool Measuring Machines will also launch the newly redesigned product line at the CIMT show in Beijing, China in April.
