Hi Terry,

With my Acceleration of 100 & Feed 200 for the Z axis our good friend Ian has calculated the over travel distance from the activation point to be 0.0555mm  ;)

The tool path for the re-designed case has now been verified, new case made and anodized.

Tweeaks I thing you are safe with that .  What IS the over travel amount of the design before you hit the limits switch ?

Just curious, (;-) TP

Hi Terry,

The physical over travel clearance is 0.5mm before the top of a limit switch is contacted, there is then a little more as a switch is activated.

Hi Astroguy,

I trust you had an excellent holiday.

My apologies for delay but commercial interest has been shown in the design of this probe so I am waiting a while to see just what transpires.
