LSP-X1h Probe Head

September 13, 2012

Hexagon Metrology announced the release of the LSP-X1h probe head for analog scanning on select Global Silver Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs). The high accuracy 3D analog scanning probe rapidly collects thousands of data points for precise evaluation of complex part features. It supports single point probing, high-speed scanning, and self-centering modes in lengths ranging from 20 to 225mm in vertical orientation and 50mm in the horizontal orientation. The LSP-X1h provides simultaneous and unclamped probing in all axes, always orthogonal to the contact surface.

The LSP-X1h attaches to TESASTAR-m indexable articulated probe heads. This enables long styli with small external diameters to reach all features on a part. It is ideal for measuring gears and other parts with complex features. "The LSP-X1h is a logical extension to our scanning sensor family," said Milan Kocic, Software and Sensor Product Manager, "It adds more versatility and usability to the already extensive offering from Hexagon Metrology."
