Touch Probe Accurate for 5-Axis Machining Use

Feb. 1, 2022
HEIDENHAIN's TS 760 has a feed rate/probing speed of 1 m/min for 3D measurement.

The TS 760 touch probe provides 3D accuracy, making it especially useful during 5-axis machining and more. The TS 760 has an accuracy of ±1 µm and homogeneous switching behavior over 360 deg. For 3D measurement, the feed rate/probing speed of 1 m/min is four times faster than other commercially available products that offer the same impressive repeatability of (2σ ≤ 0.25 µm). 

The TS 760 also offers an ultra-low trigger force of (≈ 0.2 N; axial: ≈ 1.5 N), eliminating form and surface damage.  And if desired, the probing point can be cleaned with the integrated flusher feature by using compressed air and cooling lubricant of up to 60 bars.
