Improved vProbe Offers Production Floor CMM Measurements

The new and improved API vProbe tactile measuring sensor provides the ability to perform accurate CMM-style measurements directly on the production floor. Integrated with the API Radian Laser Tracker series, vProbe significantly enhances the measuring capabilities and functionalities of traditional Laser Trackers.

vProbe is a wireless, hand-held, lightweight, tactile probe with easy hold grip that allows users to perform extended coordinate measuring functions by inspecting intricate internal and external features or part characteristics providing fast and accurate dimensional measurements.

vProbe offers more versatility than a portable arm CMM, greater accuracy, and consistent measurements making it inherently more suitable for medium and large parts. The RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) probe stylus recognition feature of the vProbe eliminates the need to manually select the probe stylus in the metrology software, ultimately removing the potential for error.

Additionally, Smart Buttons create an improved user experience, minimizing trips to the computer to select common measurement functions which are now directly integrated in the vProbe.

Dynamic tactile scanning capability provides instant coordinate feedback, and the integrated battery provides 6 hours of measurement activity. Styli lengths up to 500mm can be accommodated with a variety of tip sizes can be accommodated.
