Easy Tool-ID controller with touchscreen display
With Easy Tool-ID, Balluff has provided an affordable entry-level solution into tool management for a long time
Version 2.0 has now been newly released on the market. Just like the previous version, it is convenient
upgrade and is characterized by being easy to install and configure. It features an additional touchscreen
display and offers the user even greater convenience in practical operation as well as during configuration via
web browser without intervention into the machine tool.
Paperless tool information
All this is required is a USB port (keyboard expander) on the machine tool and a presetter. The data is written
via RFID technology from the presetter to the tool and then passed on through the Easy Tool-ID system to the
machine tool. As a result, error-prone manual entries are eliminated. On the new 7" touchscreen display, all
tool data is now displayed to the user in plain text. This ensures the correct overview. With Easy Tool-ID, the
risk of data entry errors as well as set-up times are thereby significantly reduced. Alongside the new
controller with touch display, the system consists of a tool stand with integrated read/write head, a processor
unit and the power supply.
