What is the Sprite10 CNC Tool Zero Setter from EMG Precision?

Introducing EMG Precision's brand new Low Profile, Compact, Nano-Precision CNC Touch Off Tool Zero Setter, the Sprite10 by EMG Precision.

The EMG Sprite 10 features an ultramodern optical sensor giving 0.5 microns repeatability. Our ultra-compact design has given the Sprite 10 an overall height from base to contact surface of only 43mm. The low posture of this device makes it perfect for CNC Routers and Milling machines with space restrictions. This is a world-class CNC Tool Zero Setter capable of incredible precision and is comfortably being used on the worlds most precise cnc machining centers.

Even with the compact, low profile design, we have not compromised with the Sprite10 and it still comes with the usual Air Knife & Mirror Finished 10mm diameter tungsten steel touch plate. This latest edition to EMG's Tool Setter range comes with an IP68 Rating making it perfect for the harshest of demanding, industrial environments.

What else can the Invictus Series of touch off tool zero setters do?

The Invictus Series of Tool Setters for CNC machining centers are not solely designed to measure tools. Broken tools can prove extremely costly to machine shops if they are not spotted in time to prevent further damage to tools, components or simply increased downtime. The costs involved in tool breakage can be minimised with a tool setter for cnc by incorporating tool breakage checks into an automated routine, through the use of cnc controller macro programming. Machining accuracy and surface finish quality can be improved dramatically with the regular use of a tool setter in your process steps. Tool wear has an effect on these customer valued factors and if steps are not taken to compensate for this quality from part to part, batch to batch can vary significantly.

By using a cnc tool setter regularly in your machining process, it can also be programmed to adjust for cutter tool wear. Often referred to as cutter compensation, the process involves taking measurements of cutting tools at pre-defined intervals to adjust the CAM program to adjust for tool diameter or height wear. In addition to all these functions, it is also possible with calibrated tool holders, to use a touch off setter to make checks or adjustments for thermal variation compensation.
