, VAST XTR gold

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

    DT DynaTouch
  • 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
    VAST gold
  • 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.
