Any thoughts on which one to get? Is any one of these better than the
other? Why?
Application is new Haas VF-3SS
Thanks,

Not sure exactly what your application is (tool offset vs noncontact tool breakage detection, etc) but we're running Renishaw TS-27R tool probes on our Haas Minimills and TM-1 and the OTS wireless getup on our VM3SS and Super VF-4.

The package offered by Haas is called "WIPS". I believe this includes the probe and table-mounted tool-setter. Right now we have the Marposs on order. The Renishaw is a little more expensive. It'd be nice to know if there's a good reason behind this so I can change the order if it makes sense.
