API debuts vProbe handheld tactile probing system

Friday March 29, 2019
March 29, 2019 – API has introduced its 6DoF vProbe, a handheld tactile probing system, to perform part inspections conventionally performed by large fixed coordinate measuring machines (CMM).

The wirelessly operated API vProbe allows measurement of intricate part features, including those outside the tracker’s line-of-site, providing fast and accurate manual part inspections. 

The vProbe can be used with API's portable RADIAN Pro and Plus Laser Tracker range, extending their dimensional measurements capabilities.

The lightweight, fully integrated vProbe, with easy-hold grip, turns a laser tracker into a truly portable CMM with its integrated, repeatable, quick-change ruby styli, while offering tactile scanning with instant part alignment correlation feedback. 
vProbe features a six-hour battery life, LED indicator and dual styli mount with toggle switch that can carry stylus extensions of up to 500mm, providing measuring access to deep part features and further increasing laser tracker production-floor measuring capability.

The combo package is ideally suited to a wide-range of large volume metrology applications found across the full depth of manufacturing industries including aerospace, shipbuilding, heavy machinery, military and defense.
