Always keep your tool data under control

The Easy Tool-ID pedestal simply connects to the machine-tool control via a USB cable, and data is transferred at the touch of a button.

The tool with the programmed chip is inserted into the tool adaptor in the pedestal which can be located next to the machine-tool. By just the press of a button, the RFID chip is read and the tool ID, measured values and other critical parameters such as tool life are automatically transferred into the CNC control.

In addition to the automated entries, you can manually update your tool data from the touch display. This allows tool wear to be consistently documented and the tool life always remains up-to-date on the Balluff RFID chip. This guarantees optimal tool usage.

The Easy Tool-ID guarantees process reliability when transferring tool data into the machine, and eliminates the potential for incorrect values by erroneous manual key pressing.

The system saves you time and money and reduces the risk of scrap production and machine damage.
