Marposs - Mida Optical Twin Probe.jpg

­­The Mida optical twin-probe system from Marposs enables the installation of both tool setting and part inspection probes onto machine tools using a single wireless interface. Incorporating a compact, tube-type optical receiver interface (ORI), the system simplifies probing applications, especially in situations where connecting cables is challen­ging, such as installations on machines with rotary tables or twin pallets. This combination facilitates the speedy measurement of tool length, diameter, and breakage detection—together with part setup and inspection—­in one easily installed package. Suitable for rotary table or twin-pallet machine tools, the robust system combines the ORI unit with the Mida OTS30 optical transmission tool setting probe and E83WA touch probe, providing repeatability, sturdy design, and a large transmission envelope. The twin application is managed by Marposs’ probing cycles, which switches automatically between OTS30 and E83WA according to the task in hand.
