HEIDENHAIN’s Newest Touch Probe Offers Extraordinary 3-D Machining Accuracy and Speed
New TS 760 probe with CNC controls is perfect for 5-axis machining
To meet the needs of high accuracy machinists, HEIDENHAIN introduces the new TS 760 touch probe for use with its contouring TNC and other major CNC controls. This device is distinguished by extraordinary 3-D accuracy making it especially useful during 5-axis machining and more.
The TS 760 also offers an ultra-low trigger force of (≈ 0.2 N; axial: ≈ 1.5 N) eliminating form and surface damage. And if desired, the probing point can be cleaned with the integrated flusher feature by using compressed air and cooling lubricant of up to 60 bars.
The new probe system uses a superior EnDat communication signal, along with the SE 661 that offers a radio or infrared channel selection conveniently setup on the TNC screen. And HEIDENHAIN offers local integration service to upgrade to the next level Touch Probe technology even on non-HEIDENHAIN CNCs.
Regarding its functions, the TS 760 is fully compatible with HEIDENHAIN's TS 740 predecessor and provides the same additional data as the TS 460.

Model TR1 Tru-Trac
The Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation - even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible, providing mounting access from either side. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options - including multiple wheel material options - and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ is the ideal solution for countless applications.
