Hexagon Metrology’s comprehensive range of probe heads, probes, probe changers and accessories for coordinate measuring machines represents the latest evolution in probing technology for coordinate measuring.

It includes a broad array of standard equipment precisely designed and built to achieve fast and accurate measurement. The Hexagon Metrology probing systems enhance CMM performance and functionality.

Probe Heads

The probe head forms the heart of every coordinate measuring machine. Combined with a probe, it generates the measurement data during inspection cycles.

Manual heads for touch trigger probes provide excellent basic capabilities. The automatic probe heads extend that capability with a kinematic joint for the coupling of scanning probes and laser scanners. Our continuous wrists offer servo wrist flexibility, where styli can be aligned in any direction.

Touch Trigger Probes

Hexagon Metrology manufactures touch trigger probes for fast and repeatable 3D measurements. They feature long life, accuracy, ease of use, comparatively low cost and excellent access to difficult to reach measuring points. The touch trigger probes are available in four versions with measuring forces ranging between 0.055 N and 0.10 N. Their M8 threaded connections permit direct assembly with nearly all existing manual and motorized measuring heads.

Scanning Probes

Scanning at its best - this is what users can expect with the Hexagon Metrology scanning probes. With both the smallest of these probes, the HP-S-X1 series, and the larger versions, the HP-SX3 series and the HP-S-X5, you can perform fast, accurate contour and shape measurements as well as all standard measurements including discrete scanning, self-centering measuring and continuous highspeed scanning.

Fast and precise measurements with highly accurate sensors – that’s what the 3D Scanning Probes of the HP-S-X series are made for.

Non-Contact Sensors

Optical probes expand the possible applications of a coordinate measuring machine. They are always used when the issue is the exact inspection, with the aid of light or lasers, of delicate parts that do not permit contacting measurement. These parts include, among other items, easily deformable components or circuit boards.

The HP-L Laser Scanner accurately captures millions of points within seconds. The resulting point cloud can then be used to create a CAD model to reproduce, redesign, inspect or archive the part.

The HP-C-VE vision probe is compatible with a series of Hexagon Metrology coordinate measuring machines; this probe uses a two-dimensional CCD sensor.

Roughness Sensors

The texture of a workpiece surface is more important than ever in quality assurance. Using Hexagon Metrology roughness sensors, surface profile can be measured as part of a standard coordinate measuring machine (CMM) inspection routine, without reclamping the workpiece.

Depending on the workpiece type and requirements, the surface can be measured by tactile or optical methods, with all data illustrated on a measurement report.

Complete your CMM with roughness sensors from Hexagon Metrology.

If the measuring depth is insufficient or measurements are necessary in places with difficult access, probe head extensions provide assistance. Hexagon Metrology offers various extensions to increase the measuring range.

Additionally, a wide range of touch trigger probe styli is available in a variety of metals, to fully suit the application. Types include: Disc styli, stylus extensions, star styli, hemispherical styli, cylinder styli, parallel styli, adapters, articulations and crosspieces.

Scanning probes offer the ultimate in precision, but only when paired with the best styli and accessories. Hexagon metrology offers a wide range of styli and accessories for scanning probe applications. Whatever type of styli is needed, from ceramic, tungsten carbide or carbon f ber shafts with ruby, silicon or diamond tips, turn to Hexagon Metrology.

m&h Machine Tool Probing

Touch probes from m&h measure workpieces on milling machines, machining centres, lathes, turning/milling machines, grinding machines, special machines and robots. Constant production quality also requires the use of reliable accurate tooling. One vital requirement is precise tool data. m&h touch probes for tool measurement detect tool length and tool radius directly on the machine.

Sensor, Probe and Styli Changers

The measurement of different parts on the same coordinate measuring machine (CMM) affords a high value of flexibility for different sensor configurations and machine setups.

Hexagon Metrology’s range of probe changer and styli changer racks performs fast and repeatable exchanges of probes, extensions and stylus combinations on the probe heads and sensors. A universal sensor interface option for ultra-high accuracy CMMs also enables the fully-automatic exchange of sensors within part programs.
