Renishaw High Precision Pull-Down Arm (HPPA) and High Precision Motorized Arm (HPMA)
The HPPA is a manual ‘pull-down’ ‘push-up’ tool setting system for use on CNC lathes. The HPMA is an ‘automatic’ servo driven system. Both products are designed to permanently reside in the machine envelope.
When needed, the HPPA is manually ‘pulled-down’ into position. After use, the arm is ‘pushed-up’ away from the cutting volume. HPMA requires the use of CNC M codes to drive the arm to its active and stowed positions.
All HPPA and HPMA systems are supplied with an enclosure to protect the probe and stylus assembly when not in use. HPPA and HPMA hubs are available in both R/E (rear exit ) and S/E (side exit) configurations. S/E hubs are supplied with a fixed 5 m cable. R/E hubs are supplied with a bulkhead connector and require the purchase of a separate cable.
