A mechanical-digital position indicator is the classic solution for setting positions in a machine that only requires infrequent adjustment. This is very inexpensive and the spindle setting is reproducible by the exact indication of the actual value. The tooling times, i.e. the idle times of the machine during product changeover, are, however, longest with this solution, as each position is set manually. The settings also require manual checks and may need verification during a trial run of the system before series production can be resumed.
