Broken Tool Monitoring Setup on Transfer Machines & Swiss Style Lathes

When it comes to broken tool monitoring it can be hard to visualize the installation. Below are several PCS-100 application photos on transfer machines and small swiss turn machining applications. Broken tool monitoring systems have very low cost initial investment up front and generally pay for themselves within the first few months. The images below are provided by the OEM demonstrating the PCS100 tool breakage detection system. Check out the CNC Specialty Store if you are interested in buying the PCS100 broken tool monitoring system.


Transfer Machine example notice how the wand/needle can be bent to accommodate the mounting of the PCS-100 broken tool detector and set up for the proper length of drill. Needles may be swapped out and created for different length drills since the mounting is fixed in this machining application.
