TA1.00 CMM Tooling Aid

TA1.00-Tooling Aids

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This tooling aid has two functions:

  1. It is used for setting an orientation ring concentric to the bore of a probe block.
  2. It is also used to set axis alignment.


  • A-2 Steel construction HT 58-62 R/C.
  • The shaft is precision ground to the same diameter as TruPosition Probes.

Instructions: Setting Probe Blocks to Position on Fixture

  1. Attach Probe Block to fixture with screws.
  2. Set the position of the block, with a CMM or other means, by using both ends of the Tooling Aid shaft to determine block alignment.
  3. Tighten screws.
  4. Remove tooling aid.
  5. Transfer drill and dowel (2 places)
  6. Install dowels.
  7. Recheck alignment (see #2).

Instructions: Setting an Orientation Ring

  1. Place orientation ring over tooling aid up against the shoulder.
  2. Place tooling aid into probe block.
  3. Rotate tooling aid to the desired angle for axis alignment using flat on tooling aid.
  4. Lock in position by tightening screws.

Note: Designed to work with 1.00” Dia. Blocks. Does not set the 3rd Axis stop. See TA1.00-80 or TA1.00-95.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
