Tactile Scanning Probe
Hexagon's HP-S-X1 probes feature small external dimensions and longer stylus lengths to measure surface features of complex parts.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s HP-S-X1 series of compact probes for tactile scanning feature a new bearing system for better joint repeatability and accepts longer horizontal styli for improved flexibility. Operators do not need to change modules to tackle different measurement tasks, as the probes support stylus lengths of up to 225 mm. HP-S-X1 probes feature small external dimensions and longer stylus lengths to measure surface features of complex parts, as well as bores or holes deep inside a workpiece, saving time during the inspection process. Magnetic interfaces allow for automated stylus changes on the CMM. The probe range supports all standard inspection modes including dynamic single-point contact measurement, self-centering measurement and continuous high-speed scanning for quick and precise data acquisition of various surface contours. The HP-S-X1C and HP-S-X1H models accept horizontal styli of up to 100 mm, while the HP-S-X1S can take horizontal styli of up to 20 mm without changing modules.
