HP-TMe touch trigger probe

Modular touch trigger probe for a wide range of measurement applications

A touch trigger probe during an inspection routine

The HP-TMe touch trigger probe reliably records individual measurement points and offers excellent measurement accuracy and repeatability. It consists of a probe body and detachable probing modules, which can be exchanged during the measurement routine.

HP-TMe sensors are available on these systems

PickaxeDesigned for robustness
Smart design to cope with any situation. The kinematic coupling between the probe body and the module offers protection against collisions or drops from up to 1 m.

TransferDesigned for extensive usage
An improved trigger design makes it possible to maintain performance characteristics over a long period of time.

CMM-IconDesigned for compatibility
No limits on compatibility with existing and new Hexagon components or systems such as module changer racks, probes heads or CMM systems.

FelixbleDesigned for multiple applications
Four modules are available to fit all application requirements

  • Low-force module for high precision and sensitive parts.
  • Standard-force module to meet most application needs
  • Medium-force module for use with longer styli
  • Extended-force module for applications with long styli
