    TP1(S) - A robust shank-mounted probe offering generous overtravel, ideally suited to manual CMMs. TP2 5-way - A compact probe allowing component penetration, ideally suited to CNC/DCC machines. TP6 - Complementing the TP2 series, but carrying longer and heavier styli, this probe is suited to general purpose applications. TP6A - This probe has all the functions of the TP6 probe and in addition the patented Renishaw autojoint that permits fast probe exchange without the need to requalify.
