The CRYSTA-Apex EX 500T/700T/900T series are CNC CMMs equipped with the PH20 5-axis control touchtrigger probe. The 5-axis operation reduces the time required for probe rotational movements and allows more flexible positioning. This also ensures easy access to complex workpieces and saves time both during programming and measurement. In addition to 3-axis point measurement similar to conventional coordinate measuring machines, the PH20 probe head also supports ‘head touch’ operation for quick point measurement using the two rotational axes of the probe only, with no movement required along the CMM axes. The PH20 incorporates a TP20 probe and allows use of modules designed for the TP20. Automatic probe changes with a module changer is also supported with the use of the TCR20 change rack (OPTION).
- Incorporates PH20 5-axis touch-trigger probe
- Ultra-high speed 5-axis control touch-trigger probe
- Smooth 5-axis control drastically reduces measurement time (typically 40-65%) for probe rotation
- 5-axis design provides highly efficient measurement method of “head touch” for point measurement by moving the probe head only in two axes
