About OMP40-2

OMP40-2The OMP40-2 probe has been designed specifically to meet the demands of small machining centres and the growing family of high-speed machines fitted with small HSK and small taper spindles.

OMP40-2 is available with modulated transmission for use with OMI-2, OMI-2T and OMM-2 receivers, offering increased resistance to light interference.


OMP40M with LP2The OMP40M is also available which enables probe inspection of part features that would be inaccessible to the standard OMP40-2. It allows fitment of adaptors, extensions and Renishaw's LP2 touch probe.
