Touch trigger probes for your CMM
A comprehensive range of systems available to meet the
application needs and budget constraints of all users,
from simple feature checks on manually operated CMMs, to
complex form measurement on high-speed computer
The large, robust kinematic probe has a high degree of
overtravel. This attribute makes it ideal for use on
manual CMMs. The probe signal is carried to the CMM via
an external cable and the probe has adjustable stylus
force to help optimise its performance to the
Ultra-compact standard kinematic probing system
The TP2 has become the industry-standard product, against
which all others are judged. It is a 13mm diameter standard
kinematic touch trigger probe with an M8 thread mount. It
has adjustable stylus force to enable the probe to support a
wide range of styli. The TP2 is small, light and compatible
with a wide range of accessories. It is suitable for both
manual and DCC machines.
The TP20 is a 5-way, or 6-way, kinematic touch trigger probe
system. The two-piece design, comprising probe body and
detachable probe module(s), provides the facility to change
stylus configurations either manually or automatically
without the need for requalification of the stylus tips and
thereby gives significant time savings in inspection
A direct replacement for the industry standard Renishaw TP2
probe, the TP20 probe system brings a range of new benefits
to both manual and DCC CMM applications and can easily be
retrofitted to existing TP2 installations.
Robust probes for universal DCC and manual CMMs.
TP6 probes can carry longer styli than the smaller TP2/TP20
probes. The design is robust, with large overtravel and
adjustable trigger force. The TP6 has an M8 thread mount.
A range of probes using strain-gauge and piezo mechanisms
for increased accuracy.
New generation strain gauge based probes, such as TP7 and
TP200, give users the benefits of higher system accuracy,
and should be considered for high tolerance workpieces, and
where the accessing of features requires long or complex
TP200 contact trigger
High precision repeatability and 3D form measurement
with long styli is achieved by employing a novel type of
strain gauge structure to detect small displacements of
the stylus tip.
The TP200 probe incorporates micro strain gauge
transducers delivering excellent repeatability and
accurate 3D form measurement even with long styli. The
sensor technology gives sub-micron triggering
performance and eliminates the lobing characteristics
encountered with standard probes. The solid state ASIC
electronics within the probe ensure reliable operation
over millions of trigger points.
The TP7M uses strain gauge technology which provides higher
accuracy than standard touch trigger probes, The TP7M is a
multi-wired probe and must be used with the PH10M motorised
probe head or the PH6M fixed probe head. It is autojointed,
which provides the autochange function required on many DCC
