On machine tools, especially on milling machines and machining centers, HEIDENHAIN touch probes help
When the workpieces are probed, it is possible that collisions occur and the touch probe is damaged. In this case HEIDENHAIN is ready to provide several solutions.
In most cases the collisions occur completely without intention and unpredictably, especially if the touch probe is moved without Dynamic Collision Monitoring. In case of complex 5-axis machining, for example, a wrong tilting movement cannot be ruled out completely. This failure is not only annoying but also really expensive: machine standstill, downtimes, costs for repair and other factors quickly accumulate to add up to considerable sums of money.
It is beneficial for the machine operator that he can rely on HEIDENHAIN - not just in one but in many respects.
