Data output tailored to your control technology

ZOLLER offers connections ot more than 100 different machine-readable output formats here. Manual entries are no longer necessary, since the data is directly available for the specific machine controller.

The following options are available for data output:

Measured tool data is printed onto a label used to identify the measured tool. Data can then be read out again with a scanner.

Alternatively, data can be stored on a cip in the tool holder with ZOLLER tool identification, then read later by the machine controller.

The most secure and most convenient data transmission option uses the DNC network. In this option, tool data is sent directly from the presetting and measuring machine to the machine controller.
