The world-class, state-of-the-art EMG Nano 500 Contact Optical Tool Setter CNC Z-Axis Electronic Tool Setter features an optical trigger switch that offers a repeatability accuracy of 500 nanometers, or 0.5 microns.

The EMG Nano500 can technically be called an LTS and an OTS as the Nano500 measures Tool Length with an optical trigger switch. The NANO500 transfers the signals by cable. The NANO500 Optical Tool Setter has 11mm of stroke distance which reduces the possibility of an accidental crash. This tool setter has an indicator light to show its operational status and utilises a 6 core cable. NANO500 adopts original micro resistance technology guaranteeing excellent durability for a pro-longed life. The Nano500 is ideally suited for high-end cnc milling machines and large CNC Routers. For smaller milling machines and CNC routers the Sprite10 with its low profile form is a better choice.

Nano500 FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Nano500 Waterproof and Coolant Proof

The EMG Invictus Nano500 is IP68 Rated. This means that it has been fully tested to be resistant to Liquids, Oils and Coolants without a problem. The technical definition means that the instrument has total dust ingress protection and it capable of working whilst submerged, which can often seem like the case with complete flood coolant systems.

What type of customer is the Nano500 Tool Setter designed for?

The EMG Nano500 Tool Setter is suitable for the most hardened professionals. Capable of achieving half a micron repeatability, only the highest of quality CNC Milling machines and vertical machining centers can fully take advantage of the Nano500's accuracy. The affordability of the Nano500 Tool Length Setter means to it obtainable to amateur enthusiasts and semi-professionals alike.

How long will the Nano500 last?

The EMG Invictus Nano500 is truly remarkable in its build quality. Built to last from Stainless Steel and a Tungsten Carbide Touch plate, the Nano500 is designed to live in the harshest of CNC Machining Environments. The Nano500 uses an Optical Trigger switch which is mechanism free. This gives this model of Tool Setter over 10 million triggers. We don't know actually how long it will last because we had to stop counting at 10 million because there was no indication of wear at all.

Where do you delivery the Nano500 Tool Setter to?

We provide a world-wide delivery service for all of our products. Our main customers are all over Europe, Australia, Asia, Canada, United States of America and South America. Basically if your country does not have any import restrictions we will probably be able to ship to you.


IMPORTANT: The Nano500 is a Uniaxial Tool Setter and does not perform tool length and diameter. Tool Length measurement in one axis (usually Z) is possible with the Nano500.
