PresetCheck - PC-based presetter software





Modernize your Kelch, Trimos or Zoller tool presetter to 21st century

PresetCheck is a presetter software for Windows XP/2000/NT. It can be flexibly integrated to various manual presetter devices. It has a database of tools, adapters and machine tools used in the system. It fully replaces original electronics of a presetter, connecting directly to the scales.


  • PresetCheck connects to linear scales of presetter with Heidenhain IK220 card. This highly accurate card supports scales giving sine-cosine signal and trigger signal from cross-hair projector. Thus PresetCheck can be connected to all presetter devices having Heidenhain scales and to great variety of scales from other manufacturers as well (Acu-Rite, RSF Elektronik).
  • PresetCheck can be integrated to Fastems FMS systems.
  • PresetCheck uses natively Access ™97 database via ADO interface. According customer demand, other database types can be used (Oracle, SQL server).
