TS 642 – The universal replacement unit for all TS 6xx

With the TS 642 touch probe, you can replace many other touch probes from HEIDENHAIN already in the field, such as the TS 640, TS 641, TS 649 and
TS 632. The TS 642 touch probe shares the essential electrical and mechanical properties of the TS 640.

There are competent HEIDENHAIN representations in your region who can exchange and professionally repair your HEIDENHAIN touch probe.
After an exchange you can continue using your existing taper shank. This on-site support saves you time and money.

Your authorized representative would be glad to discuss possibilities for repair and exchange of your defective touch probe, and of course inform you of the new-generation touch probe TS 460.

Advantages of the TS 642 over the TS 640:

  • Longer battery life
  • Flexible battery usage: lithium, alkaline, or rechargeable
  • Infrared range has been more than doubled to 7 m
  • Larger infrared transmission angle
  • Integrated workpiece cleaning function
  • State-of-the-art sensor technology (at least five million probes)
  • Transmitter/receiver units do not need to be exchanged
