Benefits of Proactive Machine Maintenance
Tool presetting helps in sustaining and supporting efficient machining processes by providing tool data to be translated to CNC programs. These presetting machines require occasional calibration (annual?) to ensure the highest accuracy measurements. When machine shops are proactive about tool presetter maintenance and calibration, the shops typically experience:
- Reduced lag time
- Increased throughput
- Input Benefit
Never Miss a Calibration Again
Keeping track of the calibration can sometimes be a challenging task in which human error can occur. Even if a company is using a software system to stay up to date on calibrations, it still requires someone to notify the technician when re-calibrations are due. Any lag time after that point can decrease productivity and effectiveness of the machines.
