5-Axis Touch-Trigger Probe Head has infinite-positioning axes.
Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

5-Axis Touch-Trigger Probe Head has infinite-positioning axes.

Model PH20 utilizes infinite rotary positioning and unique head touch capability for high-speed point capture with minimal CMM movement. Additional time savings are achieved by synchronizing motion of head and CMM between measurements, and inferred calibration technique determines head orientation and probe position in single operation, allowing subsequent measurements at any head angle. Designed...
