The TS workpiece touch probes from HEIDENHAIN help you perform setup, measuring, and inspection functions directly on the machine tool. The stylus of a TS touch trigger probe is deflected upon contact with a workpiece surface. At that moment the TS generates a trigger signal that, depending on the model, is transmitted either by cable or over an infrared or radio beam to the control.
The control simultaneously saves the actual position values as measured by the machine axis encoders, and uses this information for further processing. The trigger signal is generated through a wearfree optical sensor that ensures high reliability.
HEIDENHAIN offers probe styli with various ball-tip diameters and stylus lengths. On the TS 260, asymmetric probing elements can also be attached through an adapter and exactly aligned with the aid of the screw connection.
