Recommended for all NC4 IAB kits.

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.

HPPA and HPMA are available to fit most common chuck sizes from 6 in to 24 in. Each ‘standard’ kit (see below) is supplied complete with:
• Arm
• HPPA or HPMA hub
• RP3 probe (A-2197-0049)
• 90° probe holder
• TSi2 interface for HPPA (A-2176-0010)
• TSi3 interface for HPMA (A-2181-0465)
• Probe enclosure (A-2275-0098)
• Cable (supplied with S/E systems only, purchase separately for R/E systems)
* A stylus assembly is not included and must be ordered separately. In addition HPPA and HPMA R/E systems require the separate purchase of a cable.

The HPRA is a ‘plug-in’, cost effective, precision tool setting system for use on CNC lathes. When needed, the arm is manually introduced to the machine envelope and held in place through the use of the machine resident HPRA base. The arm is locked in position through the duration of the tool setting cycle. After use, the arm is removed and stored on the HPRA storage stand.

The HPRA base is designed to provide a repeatable location for fixing the HPRA arm during tool setting cycles. The base is designed to stay resident within the machine and is supplied with a cover to protect the unit from coolant and debris when the arm is not in use. HPRA bases are available in rear and side exit configurations and are supplied with 3 meters of cable.

There are six primary configurations of styli to support HPRA. Each is designed to be compatible with standard sizes of block tooling ranging from 5/8 in to 2 in. Each stylus kit is supplied complete with:
• 15 × 15 × 4 stylus assembly
• Break stem
• Stylus extension/adaptor

Includes stylus 10 × 10 × 4, break protect link, adaptor and screw.
