Integrex Tool Breakege Detection
I have been contacted meny times by users of Integrex, Multus and other Multitasking machines to solve the problem of broken tool detection while the part is supported by taistock during machining. In this case the Tool Eye can not be rised.
I designed, buid, installed and put in operation the kit for this task.
I attach the link to You Tube to watch the system in operation. It checks both milling and turning tools for breakage and long tool conditions.

How did you interface the Hardware? Does it work inside Mazatrol and with a Matrix control? How much?
It works on Integrex 300 MK4 with Matrix control. The program is written in ISO and defined as M350 function. It is fetched from Mazatrol program by M function or subprogram routines.
