Marposs will feature its WRP60P and WRP45P touch probes with multichannel radio transmission, designed for machine part measurement on high-accuracy five-axis machining centers and milling machines. Through automatic detection of machine axes position, the probes achieve part positioning, workpiece orientation and origin identification, as well as accurate part measurement. Piezo-electric technology provides repeatability within 0.25 micron on 3D surfaces. A special filter allows the probes to distinguish false-triggering events from actual touch events.

The probes operate with the WRI receiver and have a range of 15 m, making them well-suited for large machines. And, since the line of sight between the probe transmitter and receiver is not required, complex surfaces and deep-cavity parts can be inspected. The modular structure and extensions of the probe enable measurements to be performed at depths as great as 1 m.

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.
