Marposs Probe Transmits on Ultrawide Bandwidth for Reliable Performance and Transmission

Probe is immune to other physical signals, eliminating interference

Published: Monday, October 31, 2022 - 11:01

(Marposs: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs, a global leader in measurement, inspection, and test technologies, has announced the availability of 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 Ultra Probing System is the key differentiator, transmitting on a different bandwidth than most of today’s devices and providing a total solution in terms of performance and signal transmission reliability.

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 and decreases the quality of the production process. The Marposs Ultra Probing System uses a different—ultra wideband—transmission range so 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 45mm-diameter touch probe ideal for multi-axis machining centers and compatible with the Marposs T25, TT25, TT30, and T25P probe ranges. The UWP60 is a 60mm-diameter touch probe suitable 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 3 LED indicators, which is very 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.
