Probes, Detectors, Pick ups and Stylus

The working unit of the profilometer....

The terms probe, stylus or pick up are synonymous with detector. These expensive components are repairable 87% of the time. Package these extremely carefully and never ship them in the profilometers driver. We currently repair Mitutoyo, Mahr, Mahr Federal, and Brown and Sharpe probes.

We also repair and rebuild most standard types. Standard detectors, deep groove detectors, small hole detectors and extra small hole detectors.


178-390, 178-296, 178-395, 178-393, 178-392, 178-394

Problems with these units are quite uncommon and most are due to misuse or, even worse, a drop or heavy impact with another item. Wear components of these gages can also result in a unit that requires repair.

While some of these problems may be relatively minor, others will require professional service. There are a few repair shops that can complete this sort of work. As this is a piece of precision equipment is should be repaired by people specializing in the field. In North America, probably one of the best repair shops is Precision Tool Works. With many components in stock using Precision Tool Works can often save precious turnaround time versus shipping the profilometer overseas for repairs not to mention the additional cost of shipping required.
