IBS PRECISION ENGINEERING INTRODUCES NEW TRISKELION 70 ULTRA-PRECISION TOUCH PROBE

IBS Precision Engineering developed an ultra-precision touch probe system, the Triskelion probe, which is suitable for point measurements as well as scanning. Its excellent measuring uncertainty and full 3D measurement capabilities make this probe suitable for ultra-precision 3D metrology. Possible applications include 3D ultra-precision (micro-/nano-) CMMs as well as on-machine metrology on machine tools.

Recently, a new Triskelion with an extremely small probe sphere (70 µm) has been introduced as well: the Triskelion [70]. This probe sphere makes it possible to measure even smaller optical features, but also small holes in mechanical items like injection nozzles.

What are the differences between the "standard" Triskelion and the Triskelion [70] “mini” probe?

Changed probe tip material:
Conventional probe tips are made of ruby. Such spheres are widely available for diameters down to about 0.3 mm. Smaller spheres are much more difficult to obtain and their sphericity is much worse. In order to obtain a probe tip smaller than 0.1 mm in diameter, a different type of stylus has been applied.
