Probe description and operation

TP1(S) touch-trigger probe

The TP1(S) touch-trigger probe (illustrated below) is a robust shank-mounted probe with a generous overtravel which is especially suited to manual CMMs. It is of a maintenance-free, sealed construction to provide a long working life.

The TP1(S) incorporates an M3 stylus mount which ensures compatibility with Renishaw's extensive M3 and M2 stylus and accessory range using the appropriate stylus adaptor where necessary.

TP6 touch-trigger probe

The TP6 touch-trigger probe illustrated below combines the accuracy, flexibility and M8 mounting thread of the TP2-5-way probe with the rugged construction and generous overtravel of the TP1(S).

The larger diameter of the TP6 (25 mm) allows the probe to carry longer and heavier styli configurations than the TP2-5-way, allowing it to be used successfully on both universal DCC and manual CMMs.

It incorporates an M3 stylus mount which allows compatibility with Renishaw's extensive M3 and M2 stylus and accessory range using the appropriate stylus adaptor where necessary.

TP6A touch-trigger probe

The TP6A touch-trigger probe has all the features of the TP6 with the added benefit of the Renishaw autojoint. This is a highly repeatable kinematic joint which allows rapid probe exchange without the need to requalify the probe tip. It can be operated either manually, using an S10 autojoint key, or automatically, using the autochange rack system.

This probe can be used successfully on both universal DCC and manual CMMs. It incorporates an M3 stylus mount which offers compatibility with all Renishaw's extensive M3 and M2 stylus and accessory range.
