If you are in the business of machining parts, tool presetters may be able to help you to save time and thereby to make more money. Saving a minute or two on each part may not seem like much, but over a year, it adds up to a lot of time saved and thereby to many more parts manufactured and sold. Preset tool holders with multiple properties, like spring loading or angular approaching, and multiple tools or cutting heads can help you to save this time and money.
Separating the cutting head, which is made from more expensive materials, from the shank, or the long and rectangular component of the holder, and its turret can also help you to save money. In addition to a tool presetter, a CNC mill, or a machine that cuts and shapes something according to preprogrammed directions, can also save machining time. A form tool, or something precut to resemble the final part, is put into the mill and quickly and precisely finished by the CNC mill. Automating at least part of your machining operation may be expensive to begin with, but the efficiency gains can potentially cover the expenses over time.
