MT- TPS Touch Probe Shield
High precision machinings on the lathe need a precise in-process control, not possible since now due to the presence of chips, dust and coolant in the work area, because they invalidate the measuring precision and expose the probe to potential damages.
M.T. created the MT-Touch Probe Shield , a shielding device for measuring probes that makes it possible to solve these problems: thanks to the opening air-operated and the use of the air also to clean the measuring stylus , MT-TPS Touch Probe Shield guarantees the maximun precision in in-process measuring , with repeatability at even less than a micron .
The main features of the MT-TPS Touch Probe Shield are:
- Shields the probe from chips, dust and coolant
- Pneumatic opening of the shields
- Air flow for touch probe cleaning
- Accurate measurement in radial and axial direction
To allow the device to be activated even on the machines not fitted with pressurisation on the turret, M.T. has developed a two-way pneumatic distributor to attach to the turret to enable the operation of the MT-TPS Touch Probe Shield.
The device can be used also to feed the pressurisation line for the X11 Powered Electrospindle, which is perfect for high-speed drilling, grinding, marking and engraving with an extremely high precision in the absence of vibrations through a unique device which can be mounted directly on the lathe turret and occupies one only station on it without the need for complicated connections or cables.
The MT-TPS and X11 joined employ allows to use the tradional lathe for maximum precision internal grinding.
