CNC Touch Probes for use with 3rd party CNC controls. Renishaw, Marposs Alternative
DP-4 CNC Touch probe is made in USA with patented technology
Renishaw CNC Touch Probe Alternative  

An affordable, accurate alternative to expensive Renishaw and Marposs touch probes.The CENTROID DP-4 CNC Touch probe is designed for Probing (part setup, zero location setup, and CMM type location and measurement of part geometry), component/fixture/work piece setup, inspection and 3D or 2D digitizing/surfacing. The DP-4 CNC Touch probe is made in USA with patented technology. Manufactured of stainless steel the DP-4’s mechanism requires only a feathers touch to trigger. Unlike other probes, the DP-4’s low trigger force allows the use of small styli for maximum detail and accuracy. Commonly used on Milling Machines, Machining centers, Router and Turning centers. The DP-4 is a state of the art mechanical design and is compatible with most any CNC control that has a PLC input for Probes. Previously sold exclusively for use with a CENTROID CNC control, now the DP-4 is available for use with other CNC controls such as Fagor, Haas, Fanuc, Fadal, Mazak, Mach3 and many others. DP-4 probe kit $1590.   Download the DP-4 Brochure click here.

Automatic Tool Height Measurement, CNC Tool set. TT-1 and TT-2
An invaluable tool for a wide variety of CNC machines. Quickly, easily and accurately setup tool heights with a push of a button. Now setting up tools is a joy not a chore. No more gauge blocks, no more paper, no more repeated measurements. Save time and increase accuracy. Once you start using the TT1 or TT2 you'll wonder why you waited to purchase this time saving tool. CENTROID manufactures two types of Touch Off devices, the TT-1 which is a conductive design and the TT-2 which is a mechanical design for spindle with non conductive bearings (ceramic) or tooling that doesn't conduct (diamond)
Mechanical Tool Height Offset Measurement   TT-2 Mechanical tool height measurement.
Operates exactly like the TT-1 but this design is mechanical in nature. The TT-2 works with all types of tooling and spindles. The non-conductive mechanical design is compatible with machines that have non-conductive ceramic spindle bearings and with all types of tools such as non-conductive diamond tooling. There are three base mounting options, magnetic, screw down or tool holder. The Carbide surface is also replaceable and has a 4-48 thread. TT-2 setup manual.

TT-2 $1310  ( Part #12486
)
       
         
Auto Tool Setter. TT1 sets Tool heights automatically. fast and accurate.   TT-1 Conductive tool measurement.
Set up your tools in a quarter of the time it would normally take! If you often machine short-run parts and are always setting up and tearing down for a new job, the TT-1 Auto tool set will save you tons of time while more accurately setting your tool height offsets. With the TT-1 you can create more parts per hour since the tool setup is so much faster. You'll even save time when you have to replace a dull tool with a new one in the middle of a job. The TT-1 is completely automatic. Press "measure" and the tool will automatically touch off the TT-1 and set the tool height offset in the tool library. Requires conductive tooling and spindle.

TT-1 auto Tool Setter $725 (Part #10220)
 
   
cnc digitizing on any milling machine

Replace troublesome and expensive probes with a new CENTROID DP-4 for less then repair cost of other probes on the market.

No need to keep sturggling with a troublesome CNC probe, no need to pay high repair costs anymore. The CENTROID DP-4 CNC Touch probe works better and costs less. Our reliable design is accurate and made in the USA. Designed for setting up part zero locations or digitizing the DP-4 is accurate down to .0001"

digitize and reproduce parts on a milling machine

From the bottom of the photo to the top: The original, the reproduced part (in wax) and G code backplot graphics of the digitizing data that was automatically created by CENTROID's CNC Digitizing directly on the milling machine that cut the part. The data you see on the screen is un manipulated raw digitizing data generated by the control, no cad/cam was used in this example. However if more extensive editing to the shape is needed it is easy to export the data to a CAD/CAM system for further editing.

Note: Files can be transferred to other centroid equipped machines as well. So you can digitize on one machine and cut the digitized file on multiple machines at the same time for mass production.
