Carl Zeiss offers a variety of contact sensors, such as the RST-P and DT sensors for single-point measurement as well as the third generation scanning with the active VAST sensors from Carl Zeiss. They allow you to quickly, precisely and reproducibly inspect form elements such as roundness or straightness in a single measuring run.
Trigger sensor for fast, dynamic capture of measuring values through single-point probing
Ideal for the automotive, engineering, tool making and mold making industries
Very robust, integrated dynamic system delivers hugh reproducibility with single-point measuring
DT has a self-centering feature and permits complex stylus configurations as a result of its automatic weight balancing
Different styli can be used in one configuration
Passive sensor as a replacement for trigger sensors
Increases operational safety and the accuracy of the measurements
For light, short and symmetrical stylus configurations. e.g. star probe
For the measurement of parts that require many angular positions of the stylus
VAST XT gold, VAST XT
Active scanning technology from Carl Zeiss
High-speed scanning for each measuring task
Complex and heavy styli combinations without a loss of accuracy for stylus lengths up to 500mm and stylus weights up to 500g
For form and position measurements, curve and freeform measurements, and reverse engineering
Can be combined with navigator technology
Active scanning probe for contact scanningand single-point measurements
Collision protection in all directions
Higher dynamic through optimized joints
Scanning speeds up to 300 millimeters/second
Easy use of stylus lengths up to 800mm, stylus weights up to 600g and asymmetrical stylus configurations
VAST gold - primarily with Navigator technology - drastically increases the measuring performance and thus productivity
VAST XTR gold
VAST XTR gold is based on the VAST XT gold design. The navigator and performance functions are fully supported by VAST XTR. The VAST performance function enables the stylus to scan interrupted contours without sacrificing speed or precision.
Key differentiating feature is the integrated swivel joint which enables the stylus mount to turn as far as possible in 15 degree increments and thus always be positioned at the right angle to the part.
VAST XTR with the integrated swivel joint is as reliable and accurate as traditional “fixed” styli.
VAST XTR gold is also suitable for rotationally symmetric workpieces such as ventilation gears or turbines. Thanks to the swivel joint, the probe reaches interior gears that until now could only be measured using complex stylus configurations.
New sensor also has a particularly positive effect on large and heavy parts, e.g. in shipbuilding, in wind power or in the heavy equipment industry.
