Achieving 1μm repeatability with four-point support mechanical system.
Reasons to choose Metrol’s High-precision Compact Touch Probe
Uninterrupted by noise,
New radio transmission system!
Selects the optimal channel automatically by searching the radio wave frequency band at all times. Metrol’s Touch probe is resistant to radio wave interference compared to conventional infrared-ray communication and not affected by obstacles and coolant.
Four-point support, mechanical structure. No correction of software “roving”.
Achieves 1μm repeatability.
Also suitable for Large turnmill centers and 5-Axis Machines for precise measurement.
180 hours without a battery change.
50% more energy saving compared to conventional battery-operated system.
No deterioration of accuracy with decreasing battery life.
