When you first start learning to use your CNC mill and CAD software, it’s a good idea to take on some relatively simple projects that use just one or two different cutting tools. This can help you hone your technique and get a better feel for the strengths and limitations of each tool.
But once you master these simple projects, you’ll probably want to tackle something a little more advanced. These projects may require more advanced CAD programming knowledge and the use of multiple cutting tools. Once you start working on these more complex projects, it won’t take you long to realize that cutting tool changes constitute the most tedious and inefficient part of your workflow.
Fortunately, quick tool change attachments offer an elegant solution to this issue.
We offer a quick tool change system from Royal Products that makes it easy to swap tools in a matter of seconds. Using our MASTER software, the quick-change system can be programmed with up to 10 different tools at a time. The software also automatically adjusts the Z axis during each tool change to compensate for variations in tool height. Because the body of the quick-change system can be left in the spindle, it can even reduce spindle wear from repeated tool changes.
This quick tool change system offers a great way to start undertaking more complex CNC projects with ease. To learn more about this or any of the other CNC machines and accessories we offer at CNC Masters, feel free to give us a call or contact us online today.
