  • Probe not registering hits

    I can calibrate my probe and tap the stylus with my finger - both give beeps when I get a hit.

    When I attempt to run my program, the probe does not register a hit and continues moving after making contact with the part.

    The program was running fine up until half an hour ago, when it stopped registering hits for no apparant reason.

    Any ideas as to what may have happened?

    Check your settings. Make sure your calibration trigger force is same as your program's. Try another program to see if it is a universal problem or part program specific.
    I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

      I've tried a different program and get the same results.
      Trigger force is at 0.2N (Paramater settings/Opt.probe ? I'm guessing that's the place it's set at. I don't know how to check the force for calibration
      program touch speed is 2%, calibration is 1.25%

        NOT REGISTERING HITS

        IF USING A TP-20 OR OTHER MAGNETIC CARTRIDGE I'VE FOUND I CAN
        PUSH A PART ( SMALL ) RIGHT OFF THE TABLE WITHOUT REGISTERING A HIT,
        IF THE CARTRIDGE IS TO CLOSE TO A MAG BLOCK. OUR PROBES ARE STAINLESS
        SO MAGNETISM DOESN'T EFFECT THEM, BUT IT CERTAINLY DOES EFFECT THE
        CARTRIDGE!!!

          If you are using a TP20 make sure the part is not magnetized.

            Ah ha! The magnetism is it. I'm using 2 small rare earth magnets to hold the part.

            Thanks for the sleuthing

                  We have a SP600 and when used to take points it pauses after each touch.

                  It seems to me like my probe takes to hard of a hit on whatever surface it is reading... what should normal max,low force be? or trigger force?
