Sensor mounts ZEISS RDS The basis for maximum flexibility The best articulating probe holder in its class enables you to reach virtually all angles via numerous single positions. The ZEISS RDS articulating probe holder is particularly well-suited for measuring complex parts, where features require many styli with different spatial directions. It reaches up to 20,736 positions in 2.5-degree increments – thus providing access to every part feature. This is made possible by the horizontally and perpendicularly arranged rotary axes with rotational ranges of plus/minus 180 degrees. 360˚...

Sensor mounts ZEISS CSC Maximum dynamics and precision More powerful, faster and more accurate – the ZEISS CSC sensor establishes a new standard for continuous articulating units and is thus ideal for the volume measurement demands of complex car body parts. Optical and contact sensors must be optimally positioned for the volume measurement of complex car body parts if they are also to measure difficult-toreach points in the part interior. Long extensions are often required. It is exactly here that the ZEISS CSC opens up opportunities that have been unavailable until now: this is due to the...

The new Continuous Sensor Carrier (CSC) from ZEISS Industrial Metrology allows full rotations of 360 degrees in one direction and supports stylus extensions up to 800 millimeters to provide added flexibility in hard-toreach locations. The ZEISS CSC is intended for horizontal-arm measuring machines used for challenging jobs in prototype construction or in process optimization, particularly in the automotive industry

Touch-trigger sensors Thanks to a unique combination of technical features, the ZEISS RST-P touch-trigger sensor enables a wide range of applications and delivers high precision in all probing directions. This sensor is known for its fast and dynamic capture of measurement data through single-point probing, free from stylus bending and mechanical hysteresis. ZEISS RST-P works according to a dual principle. This means it delivers the actual probing pulse from the piezoelectric elements located in front of the kink point. The three-point bearing also serves as a mechanical kink point that...

Multipoint sensors ZEISS XDT Precision in all probing directions Thanks to a unique combination of technical features, the ZEISS XDT multipoint sensor enables a wide range of applications and delivers high precision in all probing directions. There are many instances when users require the flexibility of an articulating probe holder. Compared to touch-trigger sensors, the ZEISS XDT enables an increase in the operating safety and accuracy of the measurements. Unlike touch-trigger, single-point measuring, single-point scanning with sliding acquisition of measuring points provides a result...

Optical sensors ZEISS ViScan Spotlight on two dimensions The complexity of test pieces today is so extensive that contact or optical sensors alone are no longer sufficient. With the ZEISS ViSCAN 2D optical probe, it is now possible to perform contact and optical measurements on one machine. The hallmark of ZEISS ViScan is its flexibility in all aspects: combined with ZEISS RDS, it permits measurements in all spatial directions without rechucking the part. Different lenses are also available. The working distance is practically independent of the lens used, thus allowing the measurement of...

Optical sensors ZEISS LineScan Point clouds at the speed of light ZEISS LineScan is the tool of choice when capturing the entire surface of forms using point clouds is important – whether for a comparison with available nominal CAD data sets or for the creation of a new CAD model. ZEISS LineScan is extremely fast: up to 700,000 points per second can be captured for high-speed digitizing. The short measuring times lead to a considerable increase in productivity. ZEISS CALYPSO measuring software and the automatic sensor change out on machines featuring mass technology also contribute to the...

Optical sensors ZEISS DotScan More light on the subject Chromatic white light sensors enable the non-contact capture of workpiece topography. These are generally used when sensitive, reflective or low-contrast surfaces make it difficult to use other optical sensors. ZEISS DotScan is an outstanding option for capturing freeform surfaces and even for minute structures. Chromatic white light sensors – and hence also the ZEISS DotScan – are the method of choice, especially when styli or camera sensors reach their limits on sensitive, soft, reflective or low-contrast surfaces. By using ZEISS...
