High Precision Piezo Probing Line

Marposs will feature its high accuracy Mida Diamond touch probes featuring piezo-electric technology. It is designed for 5-axis machining centers and milling machines. "These probes, available in optical or radio transmission styles, provide excellent measurement performance on 3-D surfaces with repeatability within 0.25 µm. They are well suited to industries where precision requirements are pushed to the limits daily, such as die and mold, aerospace, aeronautics and biomedical," said a company spokesperson.

Through automatic detection of machine axes position, these probes achieve part positioning, workpiece orientation, origin identification and accurate part measurement. "Relying upon a special filter, these probes can distinguish false-triggering events from actual touch events to provide better performance than other high precision probes that are sensitive to noise and vibrations," said the spokesperson.

Several types of applications are available. Operating with either a radio or optical receiver, the probes offer a wide operating field, useful for large machines where line-of-sight between probe and receiver is not ensured. And, since the line of sight between the touch probe transmitter and receiver is not required, complex surfaces and deep cavity parts can be inspected. Measurements may be performed at depths as great as one meter due to the modular structure and extensions of the probe.

The Mida Diamond line of high precision machine tool touch probes and tool setters is designed to control every step of the production process. "Advantages of this probing line include reduced machining and checking times, increased production efficiency, reduced production rejects and constant machining quality level during the entire production process," said the spokesperson.
