THE RANGE OF PROBES FOR TOOL CHECKS ON MACHINING CENTRES
The TLS line represents a complete range of compact probes for tool checks on machining centres.
They may be used for the following checks:
- Tool breakage, in order to avoid damaging the workpieces and the machines, and the resulting production delays.
- Tool length
- Tool wear compensation, in order optimise working life
- Determining tool offsets in order to reduce set-up times and eliminate the need to pre-set the tools before mounting them in the machine
TLS probes offer excellent repeatability at high touch speeds, which increases production quality and reduces cycle times significantly, and this means that they represent the ideal solution for mass production and unmonitored processing applications.
The IP67 protection class (IEC 60529) guarantees high performance even in hostile machining environments. The air cleaning system guarantees that the probes are not affected by shavings or coolant.
