Heidenhain TS 760 touch probeClick image to enlarge

Heidenhain has introduced the TS 760 touch probe, for use with its contouring TNC and other major CNC controls.

A high degree of 3D accuracy makes the TS 760 especially useful during five axis machining. The probe offers high accuracy (±1 µm) and homogeneous switching behavior over 360°. 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 repeatability of 2σ ≤ 0.25 µm.

The TS 760 offers an ultra-low trigger force of (≈ 0.2 N; axial: ≈ 1.5 N) to eliminate 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.

The new probe system uses an EnDat communication signal, along with the SE 661 that offers a radio or infrared channel selection setup on the TNC screen.

The TS 760 is fully compatible with Heidenhain TS 740 predecessor and provides the same additional data as the TS 460.
