Product Features

  • Insensitive to changes in the environment (vibrations, part displacement, set-up or CMM instability have no impact)
  • Highly efficient at measuring parts that can’t be moved to a granite or cast iron table
  • Ideal for geometric and surface quality control
  • If offers scanning capabilities when paired with a MetraSCAN 3D scanner
  • Part size range : 0.2-10 meters, any type of materials
  • Measurement range up to 16 m3
  • Truly portable and wireless
  • Instant measurement
  • Multi-function buttons for easier interaction with the software

Applications

Inspection

  • Part-to-CAD analysis
  • First article and supplier quality inspection
  • Conformity assessment of 3D models against the original parts/production tooling
  • Conformity assessment of manufactured parts against the originals
  • Alignment
  • Tooling certification
  • Multi-shot measurement (up to 80 measurements/sec.)
  • When used with a MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanner, allows full free form inspection
  • and generates high density color maps
Reverse Engineering
  • Reverse engineering of geometrical entities (spheres, cylinders, planes)
  • When used with a MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanner, allows faster and more accurate reverse engineering of mixed parts
    (geometrical and free-form)

(1) Typical value for diameter measurement on a calibrated sphere artefact.
(2) Based on the ASME B89.4.22 standard. The probe of the HandyPROBE Next is located within a conical socket. Individual points are measured from multiple approach directions. Each individual point measurement is analyzed as a range of deviations in X, Y, Z (value = range/2).
(3)Based on the ASME B89.4.22 standard. Performance is assessed with traceable length artefacts by measuring these at different locations and orientations within the working volume of the C-Track (value = maximum deviation).
(4) The volumetric accuracy performance of the HandyPROBE Next is dependent on the working volume in which the measurement is made: 9.1 m3 (320 ft3) or 16.6 m3 (586 ft3).
(5) The volumetric accuracy performance of the system when using a MaxSHOT 3D cannot be superior to the default volumetric accuracy performance for a given model.
