API presents the new and improved vProbe in online demos. vProbe achieves CMM-level accuracy when measuring components of any volume. API’s new vProbe is smaller and lighter. It features automatic probe recognition, smart buttons, and has a working battery life of up to eight hours.
“The new and improved API vProbe tactile measuring sensor provides the ability to perform accurate CMMstyle 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.”, summarises Jan-Hendrick Lott, General Manager von API für die Region EMEA, on the performance of the new measuring sensor.
Accurate 3D measurements of internal and external features
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.
Easy, error-free application through Smart Buttons for common software functions
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 probe stylus recognition feature of the New vProbe eliminates the need to manually select the probe stylus, ultimately removing potential for error. Additionally, Smart Buttons create a better user experience, minimising trips to the computer to select common functions which are now integrated in the probe. Dynamic tactile scanning capability provides instant coordinate feedback, and the integrated battery provides up to 8 hours of measurement activity. Styli lengths up to 500mm with a variety of tip sizes can be accommodated.
Applications of the 3D measuring system – demo options both on site and virtual
vProbe is ideal for applications in component measurement, hidden point measurement, quality assurance, fixtures, jig and tooling, reverse engineering, scanning and all other precision measurement applications.
