- Fast and accurate machine setups
- Simple push button, menu driven Probing Cycles
- Eliminate edge finders, center finders, bore gauges, gauge blocks and complex calculations
- No G or M-codes to memorize
- Inspect parts before removal from the machine
- Align fixtures & parts to the machine in seconds
- Set zero locations (WCS) automatically
- Rotate Coordinate System to match part
Probing is used to quickly and accurately find
zero points on a vise, fixture or part. Eliminate operator error when setting zero points,
finding edges, or center locations of bosses or bores, slots and webs.
Eliminates the need for a center finder or an edge finder. You'll never
have to spend 30 minutes using a center finder to locate the center
of a bore again. The probe will find and set the center of a bore
in just seconds. In addition the probe can be used to verify part
dimensions and locations.

Seamlessly integrated into the control CENTROID CNC Probing is easy to use. Graphical Probing cycle selection with no G or M-codes to memorize, there is no learning curve. Pick the cycle required and the probe does the rest. More accurate than setting up machines by hand, Probing eliminates human error, specialty tools and complex calculations. Improve the accuracy of machine setups while decreasing setup time. Set part zero locations (WCS) accurately in seconds, locate off vise, fixture, or stock. Measure part features before, during and after machining and verify dimensions before removing from machine. Use in conjunction with Coordinate System Rotation to align the machine to parts or fixtures, which is particularly useful for hard to fixture parts. Available on both the M400 & M39.
