Ultra Wideband Transmission Touch Probe System

Marposs Ultra Probing System transmits on a different bandwidth than other shop floor devices to increase reliability and uptime.

Marposs offers its Ultra Probing System with ultra-wideband transmission technology. This high-accuracy touch probe automatically detects the position of the machine axes to provide quick and accurate part positioning and tool checking. "The key differentiator is that the Ultra Probing System transmits on a different bandwidth than most of today's devices, providing a total solution in terms of performance and signal transmission reliability," said a company spokesperson.

The spokesperson continued, "In recent years there has been an exponential increase in Wi-Fi devices on the shop floor, leading to saturation of the 2.4 GHz band, resulting in noise interference that affects the reliability of wireless probing systems. This causes downtime, as well as decreasing the quality of the production process. The Marposs Ultra Probing System uses ultra wideband, a different transmission range, so that it is immune to other physical signals, eliminating interference to ensure reliability and machine uptime."

The system comes with a choice of two different touch probes. The UWP45 is a 45 mm diameter touch probe suited for multi-axis machining centers and compatible with the Marposs T25, TT25, TT30 and T25P probe ranges. The UWP60 is a 60 mm diameter touch probe that is suited for use on large scale workstations and vertical lathes. It can be configured for use with Marposs T25, TT25 and T25P probes with extensions up to one meter in length.

The Ultra Probing System also includes an Anchor Antenna with three LED indicators, which is compact for easy and fast installation, and a new Marposs APP that provides easy system setup as well as real-time monitoring of system, combined with diagnostic and service operations. Additionally, a new generation connector connects the Anchor to the machine's CNC via a wired cable for higher reliability.
