The tool length adjustment is faster and easier because it is carried out by rotating the pre-tensioned spring assembly. Setting the tool length does not change the overall length of the tool. An advantage is that no PHNC settings are changed and that no risk of collision exists. The maximum grind life is 5.0 mm at 4.5 mm sheet metal thickness.
Another benefit is that existing AMADA stamp bodies can be effectively used in the NEX system.
