Probe Features an Integrated Swivel Joint
The Vast XTR gold probe from Carl Zeiss is designed for flexible and accurate measurements and is said to increase productivity.
The system’s standard, fixed stylus makes it well-suited for parts with many features and angular positions, such as those on gear housings for helicopters and locomotives, the company says. The probe can also be used for rotationally symmetrical workpieces, such as ventilation gears and turbines. Vast XTR gold is available for the following Zeiss systems: Accura II, GageMax, Prismo and MMZ T II.
