One that’s coming up a little more regularly here at Status Metrology HQ is the concerned call from a CMM Operator who’s machine isn’t performing and reporting a TR_FG018 error code. As machine environments, build quality and reliably all improve, it is human nature to expect the CMM to always be on point. However, TP20’s wear as they are swapped on and off the CMM however many times a day, week, month or year. Often as not when the touch probe isn’t seated properly or the contact surfaces are worn you’ll receive a TR_FG018 error code. Thankfully it is usually very easy to remedy, simply swap that touch probe off the CMM or re-seat the probe and ‘hey presto’ it should resolve the problem.
