Tool measurement on the machine shortens non-productive times, increases machining accuracy and reduces scrapping and reworking of machined parts. With the tactile TT touch probes you can measure your tools efficiently and reliably.

Measuring the tool radius
By probing the rotating tool, the touch probe finds the maximum tool radius. Then the tool orients itself to the longest tooth. The exact radius is measured by repeatedly probing the longest tooth to "close in" on the highest value
Individual tooth measurement is possible only with your HEIDENHAIN control.
