Building on the feedback from our customers, Newall has added an innovative new feature to the DP700 DRO. Tool Datum Memory enhances the way tool offsets are used during turning operations when using quick-change or turret style tool posts. The Multiple Tool Datum function offers several advantages when compared to the standard Tool Offset function such as;
- Multiple Datums - Each tool has its own independent datum (tool datum)
- Quick Tool Edits – Changes can be made on the fly with live position display
Example: Several tools are required for work on a particular piece. There might be a roughing tool, a finishing tool, a thread cutting tool, ID boring tool, etc. With the new Multiple Tool Datum feature, a separate and independent datum can be set for each tool. The user can quickly set up each tool and changing the offset of one tool does not affect the other tools.
Users will now have the option of using standard tool offsets or the new multiple tool datum feature.
This new feature is available for all units that are shipped after 1 October, 2012 and included with software version 1.1.0 and higher.
