Feather Touch Probes are designed specifically for applications where low tip forces are critical. Air is vented through the shroud at the front of the probe during actuation, which in turn cleans the bearing. With no gaiter to protect the shaft from contamination they are unsuitable for use in wet or oily conditions. Read more...More Product Announcements from Ametek Solartron Metrology
Measurement is vital to any manufacturing business, providing information to control processes and verify products. Older coordinate measuring machines can become bottlenecks if they fail to keep pace. In the current economic climate, upgrading makes good economic sense. Inspec can provide a range of retrofit solutions, from simple touch-trigger probing to advanced 5-axis measurement. Read more...More Product Announcements from Inspec Inc.
The Ultra Feather Touch probe has so light a tip force, it is a viable alternative to a non-contact sensor in many applications. With various tips available in ruby and nylon, the UFT is already being used to check glass, rubber, semi-conductor wafers and other delicate materials.
