TT 160 and TT 460
Tool touch probes for efficient measurement and tool inspection
- High repeatability for very high measurement quality
- Choice between cable-bound vs. radio and infrared signal transmission
- Interfaces: HTL, or EnDat 2.2 via SE
- Protection rating: IP68
Cableless signals with the TT 460
The reliable radio and infrared signal transmission of the TT 460 touch probe reduces cabling in hard-to-access machines. This combined signal transmission capability merges the benefits of infrared and radio in a single system. Infrared transmission is ideal for compact machines, while radio transmission is beneficial in large machines.
Even after five million probing cycles, the HEIDENHAIN workpiece touch probes are still highly accurate: with a probing repeatability of 2 σ ≤ 1 µm at a probing speed of up to 3 m/min, these touch probes deliver reliable measurements even after prolonged use.
The tool touch probes can be quickly and easily mounted as desired with fixing clamps or a space-saving mounting base. Integrated blowers and a hose connector can also be selected for the mounting base.
The connecting pin on the probe contact features a predetermined breaking point that prevents expensive damage to the touch probe. This breaking point works in all probing directions, while a rubber grommet provides protection from fragments. The connecting pin is quick and easy to replace without readjustment.
