Siemens 828d Haimer probe and setting tool heights


Jul 12, 2021

We have a new cnc machine that has siemens 828d. I want to set up the tool table so that all the tools have a positive tool length from the guage line.

We have a haimer 3d taster manual probe and also have a manual tool setter that is set to 50mm high when it reads 0.

What are the steps I need to take to be able to set all my tools and use the haimer probe to set my g54 and all of them to be in relation to each other?

A step by step guide from having 0 tools lengths to having a tool table would be greatly appreciated

Thanks Guys
Do you currently have access to the machine? Have you already tested whether the machine is setup like this? Newer machines typically run positive values.
