EASTEC 2013: Optical Touch Probe


The new Mida VOS optical touch probe system for use on large three- and five-axis machining centers will be showcased. The Mida VOS probing system consists of a receiver with integrated EASTEC 2013: Optical Touch Probeinterface and a transmitter unit compatible with the full range of Mida touch-trigger probes. It is available in a compact or a modular version allowing wide range application flexibility. The Mida VOS system features multi-channel operation, permitting up to four transmitter/probe units to be used in an application with only one receiver. For machines with multiple spindles, it is possible to implement two applications on the same machine by allowing two probes to be used simultaneously. The VOS touch probe system features high immunity to interference, a large operating range and a wide transmission angle due to its modulated optical transmission system. Carbon extensions up to 1-m length can be used with the VOP60 modular transmitter/probe unit for reaching into deep bores.
