Primo™ Credit Tokens
Primo™ machine tool probe systems operate using unique ‘pay-as-you-go' Credit Tokens. On this page you can find more information about Primo Credit Tokens and what to do after yours expires.
Affordable, easy-to-use probing
The Primo™ Part Setter and Primo 3D Tool Setter is an affordable range of machine tool probes. Instead of a long-term contract or large upfront investment cost, the probes run using Credit Tokens. A six-month token is included in the purchase price of every Primo system, so that you can experience the benefits of probing before buying more credit.
- If you achieve an increase in productivity, the credit cost is likely to quickly pay for itself.
- If you don't see a benefit from the Primo system, then you don't have to purchase more credit.
- During the six-month period that a Credit Token is active, all the components of the Primo system are covered against accidental damage under Primo Total Protect*.
The Primo system can only operate when there is credit available. If your system has stopped working, you may need to renew your Credit Token.
Choose between two available Credit Tokens:
- The six-month Credit Token – enables the Primo system to operate for six months. It provides flexibility in how you pay for credit: if you have a quiet period then you can delay buying a new token until you need your Primo system again.
- The upgrade Credit Token – provides unlimited use of the Primo system in a one-off payment.
Primo Total Protect
Primo Total Protect gives you the confidence to use the Primo system knowing that you are covered against accidental damage. While the 6-month Credit Token is active, all components in the Primo system will be covered against accidental damage. Your Primo probe will be replaced free of charge, giving you worry-free probing*.
Protection is activated when you purchase and register your Primo 6-month Credit Token. It covers your Primo systems (radio part setter, radio 3D tool setter and interface) from the start date of your Credit Token until it expires.
If you are already a Primo system user, you can activate your cover by registering via the link below. Simply enter your system's serial numbers together with your token number. This will cover you for the six-month life of the Credit Token.
