Tool changers, pallet changers, quick-change fixtures, and dozens of improvements are made to reduce the time that a spindle sits idle. So why do so many people still set tool lengths in the machine? "Setting a tool only takes a minute or two." Yes, but setting just 20 tools can mean a loss of 40 minutes of productivity. That's 3-1/2 hours per week setting tools - working only one shift. That equates to two days a month lost productivity.
