News & Innovations

BLUM ZX-Speed - The most advanced member of the tool setting probe series 

Blum-Novotest, the leading supplier of innovative and high-quality measuring and testing technology, introduces the new ZX-Speed tool setting probe at the EXPOMAQ (Booth 1813, German Pavilion) trade fair. As a result, the company's 3D tool setting probe series for machine tools now includes three new compact systems for tool measurement of length and radius as well as for tool breakage detection.

A noteworthy feature of the new ZX-Speed is the modern, multi-directional measuring mechanism of the latest generation: Unlike standard probes, its rotationally symmetric design offers constant and extremely precise measuring characteristics in all measuring directions without a preferred direction.

This allows the measurement of even very small tools starting from a diameter of 1 mm with an ultra-precise repeatability of 0.4 µm 2σ. The trigger signal generation system used by the BLUM tool measuring probe is also remarkable because it is based on optoelectronics and the shading of a miniature light barrier rather than a simple micro-switch. This wear-free system guarantees consistently high measurement accuracy even after millions of switching cycles.


Established in 1968 and based in Ravensburg, Blum-Novotest GmbH is one of the globally leading manufacturers of high-quality measuring and testing technology for the international machine tool, aerospace and car industry. Today, the family-run company employs more than 500 staff at a total of eight sites in Europe and in the USA, Mexico, China, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, India, Brazil, Thailand and Russia. Together with specially trained system integrators and regional sales offices, this sales and service network guarantees comprehensive support for BLUM products in use throughout the world.
