Presetter

Manufacturing has been leading the US economic recovery since 2008, with many companies choosing to bring jobs back to the United States as a matter of economic necessity. This return of jobs has been termed “reshoring”, and it has stimulated the American job market. However, CNC machining and related fields require a certain number of qualifications that many people do not have. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Controlled, describing the way in which these machines execute their operations.

CNC machines use computer programs to execute machining operations automatically, and these machines require a number of components in order to function properly. Presetters, CNC tool holders, ER collets, and boring tools are only some of the facets that machine tool manufacturers must keep in production. Tool holders and their related products are used in high speed, high velocity machining. Deep hole drilling and deep hole boring are two processes that are difficult in machining, and these require special tools for their implementation. Presetters are, essentially, the measuring stick of a machinist. It helps to determine the measurements and axis of the part, as it is imperative that the measurements be precise.
