Touch Probe

Silvercnc cnc touch probe is a competitive brand. One of a best-selling probes in China market. High-precision, high-quality,good-stability probe solutions, which performance is close to Renishaw, Blum, Marposs. your best and economical probe solution choice

The machine tool touch probe has been widely used throughout many industries in China market, which sales volume has reached 10000 sets at 2019-2021 ,  all recognized by customers. The probe solution used for measuring the size and position of the workpiece, and automatically correct the offset of the tool or workpiece according to the measurement results. with that can improve the efficiency of your machine tool and  the qality of your machining parts.

workpiece touch probe for machine tools

Silvercnc offer three kinds of probes including : infrared touch probes, radio wave  probes and hard-wired  probes, Touch Probe For Machine Tools, Touch Probe Application

Silvercnc machine tool probe basic

The workpiece probe basic is the same as renishaw brand, Three equally spaced rods rest on six tungsten carbide balls to provide six points of contact.
Under load of the spring, contact patches are created between the balls and the rods through which the electrical current flows. Upon making contact with (touching) a workpiece, the force translated through the stylus moves the balls and rods apart thus reducing the size of the contact patches and increasing their electrical resistance.
When a defined threshold is reached the probe is triggered.
Repeatable electrical triggering and mechanical reseating of the mechanism are critical to this process and fundamental to reliable metrology

Probe program and hardware

Silvercnc technology probe is triggered by pulse signal, which is normally open. When it is not working, it starts the sleep mode automatically. and don’t need to closed with M code command. This can reduce power consumption and improve battery life greatly.

The probe can match one or more hardware,such as two probe kit on turret machine, S5TS-R tool setting, only need one receiver.

It’s impossible to replace other brand hardware or work along with renishaw or some other. for example :when Renishaw OMP,OTS ,OMI broken,our hardware can’t compatibale and work along with it.

But the software and Marco grogram package can work along with Renishaw’s. On a machine tool with a probe, you can use it normally no need to change renishaw Marco,just changing the hardware

silver CNC touch probe highlights

Perfect mechanical structure design

(1) Silvercnc touch probe use a proven technology -kinematic resistive principle that can stably operate for long time,

(2) it can realize extremely precise measurements under standard 50mm probe styli at 600mm/min speed,

(3) The balls and rods of the probe adopt special process to ensure 10 million times life, to ensure excellent stability

(4)we  research and development a micro swing autonomous reset technology independent , successfully solved the problem of poor stability and unstable repeated . now silvercnc probe have excellent stability performance, high repeated positioning accuracy 

Reliable signal transmission

(1) Silvercnc use coded signals optimized optical communication technology, to sure that the signal transmission is stable,  response speed  fast, and don’t lose signals.

(2) The touch probe applies dual channel technology, through the remote control frequency change, perfect solve the problem of mutual interference of infrared probes in the industry, Innovation within probing industry.

Long battery life

(1) The probe adopts the multi-threshold power consumption control technology, which greatly reduces the product power consumption, and by optimizing the chip design and circuit design, improves the battery life further.

(2) Battery life: silvercnc touch probe life is long, continue use >360 days,  5% use  >540 days, Standby >600 days,Battery life is much higher than other  brands

Easy to install

(1) The installation of the probe receiver is a troublesome job, which requires drilling holes in the machine tool for fixing.

(2) We designed a magnetic mounting base that allows the receiver to be mounted on the base and then attached together to the sheet metal of the machine tool, reducing installation difficulty.
