Blum ZX Speed Probe

ZX-Speed Series – Reliable tool measuring probes for a wide variety of machines

Please contact us for more info.


Economic solutions for tool setting in length and radius as well as for tool breakage monitoring. Precise and reliable measurements thanks to cutting-edge measuring mechanism technology with optoelectronic switch signal generation.

Wear-free and optoelectronic signal generation

  • The trigger signal is generated via shading of a miniature light barrier
  • Enables higher measuring speeds and accuracy than with conventional probes
  • Reliable tool setting under the most adverse conditions
  • Wear-free with long-term stability

High-precision and modern measuring mechanism

  • Precise, non-lobing switching behaviour
  • Constant deflection forces
  • High-quality latest-generation BLUM measuring mechanism
  • No disadvantageous 3-leg principle
  • No highly sensitive switching elements

The most up-to-date transmission technologies

  • ZX-Speed: Hardwired
  • ZX-Speed IR: Infrared Transmission
  • ZX-Speed RC: BRC Radio Technology
  • DUO-Mode: Sequential use of 2 infrared measuring systems with one receiver
  • Sequential use of up to 6 radio measuring systems with one receiver
  • TWIN mode: Simultaneous use of 2 radio measuring systems on one machine
  • Very long battery life
