The NC1 is a laser based tool setting system designed for the
harshest machine tool environments. The system uses a laser
source and CNC resident macros to set tool length and
diameter and perform broken tool detection cycles. The NC1
can also be used to check for missing or broken inserts, verify
the form of a tool and monitor a machine's thermal drift.

NC1 is available in fixed or separate configurations. Fixed
systems have the laser transmitter and receiver attached to a
single mounting beam. Separate systems are supplied with
discrete transmitter and receiver units and are designed to be
mounted independently.

range. In addition, the customer must select tool
setting software based on the control type. Brackets
and an adjusting method are also needed for NC1
separate systems. These are not included with the
