Tool-Positioning System minimizes setup times.

May 9, 2014

Based on VDI interface, Eppinger Trifix Tool Positioning System facilitates quick and accurate exchanges of both static and driven tooling for DMG/Gildemeister multitasking machines. System delivers positioning accuracy within 10 microns between tool stations and single-position repeatability of less than 5 microns at tool length of 3.9 in. After user initially aligns Trifix unit in lathe turret, further adjustment for subsequent tool changes becomes unnecessary. Read More
