Universal Touch Probe Replacement Available for HEIDENHAIN

Just one wrong swivel and it's done: the touch probe collides badly with the workpiece or the chuck.

Just one wrong swivel and it's done: the touch probe collides badly with the workpiece or the chuck. To ensure that such a collision no longer leads to a prolonged machine standstill, HEIDENHAIN now offers the TS 642, a universal replacement for the touch probes of HEIDENHAIN’s TS 6xx series.

If the collision happens with one of HEIDENHAIN’s known touch probes - TS 640, TS 641, TS 649 or TS 632 -, the TS 642 is available as a universal replacement. This universal probe reduces the customers' stocking of spare parts because it can replace all the touch probes of the TS 6xx series. So only one model has to be in stock.

Furthermore, the original transceiver can remain in the machine and all the original cables can also be used. Even the styluses are compatible. Probe replacement is therefore fast and uncomplicated. After an exchange, the existing taper shank can continue to be used.

The properties of the TS 642 correspond essentially to those of the known touch probes but with added extras:

  • The latest sensor technology with a service life of at least 5 million probes.
  • Integrated workpiece cleaning jets functioning with air or coolant.
  • Longer battery life and flexible usage of various batteries
  • Large infrared range up to 7 m with wide transmission angle

Contact HEIDENHAIN Service and HEIDENHAIN agencies for information about repair and replacement options for defective or old touch probes.
