PH20 5-axis touch-trigger
This text will be replaced
PH20’s unique ‘head touches’ allow measurement points to be taken by moving only the head rather than the CMM structure. Using only the rapid rotary motion of the head, points can be taken faster, and with improved accuracy and repeatability. Furthermore, 5-axis motion eliminates time spent indexing the head. Together these speed increases typically result in a 3-fold improvement in throughput over conventional systems.
Use your head! It’s infinitely better
Intelligent head technology affords rapid touch-trigger measurement by using 'head-touches' where measurement points are taken by moving only the head rather than the CMM structure. Using only the rapid rotary motion of the head, points can be taken faster, and with improved accuracy and repeatability.
Easy access to features at any angle
PH20’s infinite positioning capability guarantees optimal feature access, minimising stylus changes.
5-axis simultaneous motion allows larger parts to be measured on the CMM by minimising the space required around the part for head rotation.
PH20 automatically aligns itself with the part coordinate system, avoiding stylus collisions and the requirement for accurate fixtures.
These dramatic time savings accumulate as the calibration process is repeated on a regular basis to comply with quality procedures or following a probe crash.
Integral industry standard TP20 probe
Users of the PH20 probe head will immediately have access to the range of proven TP20 probe modules, providing a wide selection of trigger forces, directional sensing options and extensions to meet application requirements*. The detachable modules provide crash protection and can be automatically changed using the MCR20 change rack.
Improved touch-trigger metrology performance
Repeatability – improved when ‘head touch’ method is used
Accuracy – improved by using feature based calibration and ‘head touches’
Pre-travel variation – automatic compensation
Module changing – automatic tip offset correction.
