2018 IIC Conference - Presentations

July 26, 2016

Monday, 9/12

1:15 to 2:10 p.m. / Room W-192-C

Session Topic: Selecting the Right Tool Presetter for Your Needs

Whether you are someone getting into offline tool measuring for the first time, replacing outdated tool presetters, or are simply looking to add more capability to your facility. This presentation will help you look at the questions you need to ask yourself to make the most informed decision when trying to choose from the vast amount of tool presetters on the market today. Make a decision on what you actually need instead of what everyone wants. This presentation will help you get what you need in a tool presetter instead of what the salesperson wants you to buy. Managers, supervisors, engineers, and tool crib personnel will find this helpful in setup or expansion of tool measuring capabilities.
