BLUM ZX-Speed IR 3D Tool Setting Probe

The BLUM measuring system is an simple, intuitive, CNC machine measuring application for customers who needs an easy-to-use verification and control solution. ZX Speed series - Universal 3D tool settings probes for tool settings and tool breakage monitoring

Wear-free and optoelectronic signal generation

  • The trigger signal is generated via shading of a miniature light barrier
  • Enables higher measuring speeds and accuracy than with conventional probes
  • Reliable tool setting under the most adverse conditions
  • Wear-free with long-term stability

High-precision and modern measuring mechanism

  • Precise, non-lobing switching behaviour
  • Constant deflection forces
  • High-quality latest-generation BLUM measuring mechanism
  • No disadvantageous 3-leg principle
  • No highly sensitive switching elements

The most up-to-date transmission technologies

  • ZX-Speed: Hardwired
  • ZX-Speed IR: Infrared Transmission
  • ZX-Speed RC: BRC Radio Technology
  • DUO-Mode: Sequential use of 2 infrared measuring systems with one receiver
  • Sequential use of up to 6 radio measuring systems with one receiver


In addition to simple tool breakage detection, the tool setting probes are also used for tool setting in length and radius.
