Since this crowd seems to be adept with multiple hobbies or professions- I have a general question (CNC related). I’ve been using a digitizing probe to set my XYZ offsets. Recently I went to another shop and watched a machinist load up a Haimer and did the offset in < 2mins. Then removed the probe. Verse my current method of going to my M30, load the probe. Then connect it. Then do my offsets. Due to where the connector of the probe, this task take a while each time I do it. It’s a real PITA.
And even if I were to relocate the connector, the software aspect takes time. Especially for production ops where I have dual vises with three different offsets and require duplexing (G55, G56 & G93.4 for the ETS). Using an analog probe and touching off would be a single button press. So this is the route I’d like to go.
So my question is- Between the two (Haimer or the Tschorn) what do people suggest? If you use an analog 3d probe which one do you use? I like the fact that the gauge is larger on the Haimer. But I like the slimness of the Tschorn. But otherwise I am unsure which to get.
