Touch Probe 1000
(requires WIN PC-NC Professional)
Tool 100 Touch probe is a mechanical scanning device for our CNC platforms. The Touch probe plugs in to the machine and allows you to set up a block raster where the machine will move the probe in a defined area and touch an object at specified distances to map the points allowing you to re-create a copy from the scanned code. The process is relatively slow compared to a laser system but offers a cost effective solution for reverse engineering objects.
The Win PC-NC Professional is required to use this system or one can use the Mach3 sofware package (We do not support Mach3 but there are plenty of forums and help sites online)
