PROFILER R Tactile Roughness Sensor
Tactile sensor for roughness measurement on CMMs
Measuring all common roughness parameters, the PROFILER R can be automatically swapped on to several different scanning sensors, adding surface profile inspection to the program without the need for reclamping.
Designed to measure alongside a range of scanning sensors, the PROFILER R has its own clamping system. The unique integration method allows tool exchanges be made automatically using a standard tool changer, and enables very high positioning accuracy and controlled probing without the risk of errors or operator variability associated with manual roughness measurement devices.
With the ability to rotate through 360° and pivot by 180° the PROFILER R offers maximum flexibility and accessibility. After the support adaptor touches the workpiece, the measuring stylus is extended and moves along the surface to collect the measurement data, while the PROFILER R itself remains still throughout the measurement.
Complementing existing scanning sensors for CMMs, the PROFILER R can be automatically swapped on to a probe head to measure in the same program, reducing transport and setup times and increasing efficiency.
Integrated rotary and pivoting axis
With a measurement length of up to 15 mm and the ability to rotate through 360° and pivot by 180°, the PROFILER R makes programming simple and maximises part accessibility for reduced operator workload.
Extremely high positioning accuracy
The PROFILER R's integration with the probe head provides excellent accuracy of positioning, minimising the margin for error compared to manual profiling and rendering additional tools unnecessary.
Powered by the probe head for simple exchanges, the PROFILER's wireless data transmission increases its flexibility as a measurement tool.
One report for all results
The PROFILER R is optimised for use with the QUINDOS roughness module, and results can be reconciled directly with measurements taken by other sensors within the same program to generate one report for all the results.
Analysis to industry standards
Supporting all common roughness parameters to DIN EN ISO 4287 and DIN EN ISO 13565 standards, including arithmetical mean roughness value (Ra), average roughness profile height (Rz) and the mean width of profile elements (RSm), the PROFILER R integrates seamlessly into a quality assurance setup.
