Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Upgrades Scanning Sensor Range
New Versions of HP-S-X1 Series Scanning Probes Offer Better System Flexibility and Robustness09 June 2016
Featuring small external dimensions and supporting stylus lengths of up to 225 mm, HP-S-X1 probes enable coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) to take measurements of features deep inside a workpiece. Magnetic interfaces allow automated stylus changes, and they support all standard inspection modes including single-point contact measurement, self-centring measurement and continuous high-speed scanning, providing quick and precise data acquisition for all kinds of surface contours.
The HP-S-X1 range of tactile scanning probes includes the HP-S-X1C centrally-mounted version for high-stability in measurement and the HP-S-X1S and HP-S-X1H models, which offer the option to use an indexing probe head for better part accessibility. In the latest versions, the HP-S-X1C and HP-S-X1H models accept horizontal styli of up to 100 mm, while the HP-S-X1S can now take horizontal styli of up to 20 mm without changing modules. A standard interface allows all the probes to be used on Hexagon probe heads.
“The latest versions of the HP-S-X1 scanning probe have been redesigned to improve durability, and also allow better setup flexibility without the need to change modules,” explains Micha Neininger, Product Manager – Sensors at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “Usually, to get this range of stylus configuration options, you would need a multiple-module system. With the HP-S-X1 range, users save the time it takes to change modules, so they are always able to apply the best configuration for the job, without compromise.”
The latest versions of the HP-S-X1 compact scanning probe range are available to order worldwide from today. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
