Touch probes and vision systems

HEIDENHAIN offers universal, high-accuracy touch probes for machine tools, enabling exact tool measurement, edge measurement on parts, and more. Proven technologies, such as wear-free optical sensors, collision protection, and integrated cleaning blowers, make these touch probes a dependable asset for tool and part measurement. The vision systems from HEIDENHAIN can also be conveniently deployed to monitor tools for even greater process reliability.

Workpiece touch probes

The HEIDENHAIN workpiece touch probes enable setup, measurement, and inspection functionality inside the machine tool. When the stylus is deflected upon contact with a workpiece surface, a switching signal is sent to the control via cable, radio or infrared transmission.

Tool touch probes
