TS 460 – The latest generation touch probe

I’m sure you’re familiar with this situation: an incorrect swivel and the touch probe collides with the workpiece or fixture. If you want to avoid the resulting damage in future, then replace your old touch probe with the new TS 460 with collision protection.

The HEIDENHAIN touch probe TS 460 offers you the following benefits

  • Collision protection safeguards the touch probe and spindle in the X/Y and Z direction
  • Its slim design provides more freedom for tilting and swiveling
  • The intelligent standby guarantees a longer battery life
  • No tools are needed to exchange a battery
  • Various batteries can be used: commercially available ½ AA batteries from 1 V to 4 V, lithium, alkaline, and rechargeable batteries
  • Infrared transmission range of 7 m in spite of the small overall height
  • Radio transmission is available as an alternative with the new SE 660 transmitter-receiver unit
  • The integrated workpiece cleaner ensures unimpeded contact with the probing surface
  • The latest sensor technology offers at least five million probes and 0.25 µm repeatability
  • The TS 460 replaces the touch probes TS 440, TS 640 and TS 649
