TP6 / TP6A / TP6H touch-trigger probes

Robust kinematic probes with M8 and autojoint mounting options

  • TP6 probe is an M8 thread mounted probe
  • TP6A has an integral autojoint for quick and repeatable probe changing
  • TP6H is a high force M8 thread mounted probe
  • Long stylus carrying capability
  • Robust probes with large overtravel and adjustable trigger force
  • M3 stylus mount

Principal application

Robust universal DCC and manual CMMs

TP6A has an integral autojoint for fast probe exchange without requalification
