Parlec tool setters and measuring systems, available exclusively from Gewefa UK, now come with features that make them compatible with the Mazak Cyber Tool Management system.
Parlec and Mazak have jointly developed the Mazak Cyber Tool Productivity Package which can interface with any of the four Parsetter TMM pre-setters, all of which now offer data interfacing with Cyber Tool systems.
A typical package comprises a Mazak Cyber Tool LCD terminal, integrated data transfer from the Parsetter TMM to the Cyber tool database, multiple data resource configurations to support additional non Mazak interfaces and a dual tag read/write station for Mazak and Balluff RFID systems. This latter feature permits variable tag locations.
Mazak's Cyber Tool Management System monitors the status of all tools in the machines' magazine and checks to ensure that all tools are available for the next part processing. Cyber Tool Management is part of the four module Mazak CPC system.
As well as now offering full integration as standard, the Parlec machines offer optional packages that take this data integration and apply it to a specific process, ranging from the most simple to complex fully automated applications.
