Taper mandrel with RFID chip
Milling tool with RFID chip on shank

Emulation of keyboard input

The solution's handling and functional principle could not be easier: At the tool presetter, each tool is measured and its data, such as diameter and radius, are written on the data carrier on the tool shank. The user brings the tool to the machine, loads it into the tool holder and presses a button. The system then emulates the key input and automatically reads the data with the Balluff Tool-ID through the keyboard interface to the machine controller. Manual, error-prone entry is thus eliminated. This means that even existing machines can be modernized and upgraded with a cost-effective tool ID solution. ds
