The Z probe plate is used in finding the tool's zeroth position, or Z datum, relative to the workbench. 

Setting the Z datum can be done automatically using the Z probe plate. SmartBench will lower the tool until it touches the Z probe plate. On touch down, SmartBench receives a signal to give it the position of the Z axis.
