After experiencing previous crashes with TP200s and having them RBE, we're having a new problem.
Usually when you crash a TP200, it remains triggered. One of ours has stopped triggering at all. One of the guys was qualifying a tip on the sphere. It checked A0B0 and A90B90. When it tried to do A90B-90, the probe touched the sphere, but didn't trigger. (No magnets present, and I believe the TP200 is relatively immune to magnet issues anyway) We swapped modules, and still no trigger. (In any direction) Swapped in our spare TP200, and it works.
We then swapped the suspect TP200 back onto the CMM, and it worked. Tried measuring a part, it worked. Twice. The third time, it pushed the part (no trigger). Tried cleaning threads on the TP200 and looking for obvious debris, but have found nothing.
Looks like we are resigned to another RBE, unless someone has any hints like "there's a recall for that" or "I fixed it with a paper clip, here's how".
Anything similar happen to anyone?
