Tool Length Sensor

The tool lenght sensor can be used to setup auotmated tool Z reference setup. When you load a tool into the machine spindle of a CNC system it is sometimes difficulty to mount the tool at the same height. For example the tool might be sticking out at a different length. Therefore the z reference point, which is often the top surface of the workpiece, must be set between tool changes. The tool sensor can be setup so that the machine moves until it touches the sensor and gets a reference for the Z position. NOTE: This is considered advanced setup of your CNC system.
