HEIDENHAIN’s TS 760 probe with CNC controls for 5-axis machining.

New Touch Probe Offers 3D Machining Accuracy and Speed

Jan. 6, 2022
The TS 760 probe with CNC controls offers homogeneous switching behavior over 360°, especially useful during five-axis machining.

HEIDENHAIN introduced the TS 760 touch probe for use with its contouring TNC and other major CNC controls. This device is distinguished by 3D accuracy, making it useful during five-axis machining and more.

The new TS 760 offers high accuracy (±1 µm) and homogeneous switching behavior over 360°. And for 3D measurement, the feed rate/probing speed of 1 m/min is four times faster than other commercially available products that offer the same impressive repeatability of (2σ ≤ 0.25 µm.)

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 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.
