New Easy Tool-ID System from Balluff Optimizes Tool Usage

System reduces set up times and incorrect entries

The Easy Tool-ID 2.0 from Balluff supports machine operators by quickly providing tool data to the machine tool. The new system drastically reduces setup times and incorrect entries.


Updates can also be made manually, allowing tool wear to be consistently documented so tool life remains up to date on the RFID chip. This optimizes tool usage.

Integration of the Easy Tool-ID 2.0 is simple via USB, and configuration from the web browser is equally effortless.

Key features include:

Reduction of setup times and incorrect entries
All data shown in plain text
Manual updating of tool data using the touch display
Retrofitting with little effort
