TP6 and TP6A

Robust kinematic probes with M8 and autojoint mounting options.

TP6 and TP6A with PI 200-3

The TP6 and TP6A probes have different probe mount options (M8 thread and autojoint respectively). Both probes are kinematic touch-trigger probes and have manually adjustable trigger force for optimum probe performance with different stylus configurations.

They can carry long styli (M3 range), are 25 mm (1 in) in diameter, providing substantial overtravel for excellent robustness.
