The Moyer Magic Touch probe system brings new sensory capabilities to speed and accuracy in a retractable contact probe system.

Developed to meet speed an accuracy needs, the contact probe extends the tip to touch the spring lightly, and rapidly retracts to avoid damage and contamination. These capabilities were met by using a specially designed probe body equipped with a high-speed linear actuator and contact position sensor.

Immediately after the spring is formed, a read switch signals the gage, which commands the probe to extend until it touches and measures the spring, immediately retracting the probe tip. The maximum motion in both directions is easily adjustable.
