Calibrating a tool setter on XYZ Turning centre with Siemens 810D


It can often be a struggle to get a tool setter to calibrate correctly and we have a lot of customers contacting us for assistance with this.

Our tried and tested method is using a 10mm ground bar in a collet, set up in tool management as a turning tool and measuring it.

If it reads +5mm or thereabouts, the calibration is good, anything more than a few microns difference, then it probably needs calibration.

The parameters that are stored on tool setter calibration are found in GUD 6 in the CNC ISO area under Parameters > Settings (the top 4 parameters shown in the picture below).

Please contact Control CNC using the red button at the top of this page if you think we would be able to help with your machine. We cover the whole of the UK and Ireland.

We can help you book a service, get you a quote for a repair, or help you purchase the best quality parts for your business.
