Tool probes with hybrid signal transmission via RF and infrared signals.

(Preliminary information)


The TT 460 tool probe with wireless connection is the new generation of compact probes designed for machine tools with automatic tool changing. The hybrid RF and infrared signal transmission means that the probe can be used on very large machines.


Outline specifications (preliminary):

  • Typical values:
  • 2σ ≤1µm at a probing velocity of 3m/min
  • 2σ ≤4µm at a probing velocity of 5m/min
Deflection of probe contact ≤5mm in all directions (with stylus length L=40mm)
Deflection force
  • Axial: approx 8N
  • Radial: approx 1N
Probe velocity ≤5 m/min
