Scanning Probe

Scanning ProbeAdd a contact contouring capability to SmartScope® Vantage™ floor model systems with the SP25M scanning probe. Easy to use, simply select a start and end point and the scanning probe follows the part profile between those points.

Using intelligent algorithms, QVI®ZONE3® 3D CAD based metrology software drives the probe, rapidly following the part contour and collecting data points at a user defined velocity and data sampling rate. The scanning probe automatically adjusts point density when the probe is rounding curves. Both programming and measurement times are greatly reduced compared to single point probing.

You can characterize your parts efficiently by using video measurement or edges, and the scanning probe for surface boundaries. For the ultimate in probing flexibility use the scanning probe with a PH-10 articulating head (available exclusively on the SmartScope Vantage 650 with 400 mm Z travel).
