RLP40 radio transmission lathe probe

For workpiece inspection and job set-up on multi-tasking machines and lathes.

Flexible probing solution.

Superior communication capability.

Outstanding performance for less scrap and higher profits.

Radio frequency probe

The small-bodied RLP40 is a radio frequency probe designed to be turret mounted for part setting and inspection on turning centres.

The robust, ultra-compact design, and secure frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) communications, make the RLP40 well suited to harsh, demanding environments.

Available with a variety of activation methods, adjustable trigger force and trigger options.

Features and benefits

  • Proven kinematic design.
  • Secure frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS).
  • Globally recognised 2.4 GHz waveband – compliant with radio regulations in all major markets.
  • Ultra-compact design.
  • Increased environmental protection.
  • 1 μm 2σ repeatability.

It gives us consistency and takes out the chance of human error. Scrap reduction is not even an issue we have to consider.
