Benefits: Ruby sphere suitable for general measuring tasks Carbide shaft with high stiffness Stepped shaft to provide higher stability Proven ZEISS quality through the use of selected materialsApplication:Star styli are star-shaped combined sphere styli, which allow probing in any direction on the workpiece. While with sphere styli the probing of side surfaces is only possible to a limited extent, with star styli you can select the styli for probing which is orthogonal to the surface being measured. The stepped shaft has the advantage of a greater shaft thickness, which is reduced towards the measuring tip. This stepped shaft increases the stability of the shaft while maintaining the same length (depending on the sphere diameter). At the same time, however, the usable measuring length is reduced.Product information:Ruby styli are the standard for almost all applications and are available in a variety of different diameters. Another advantage is that ruby spheres can be produced in very small diameters (from 0.12 mm). On the other hand, ruby has weaknesses at the continuous scanning of certain materials and surfaces. With extremely soft materials, e.g. aluminum, material from the workpiece can be deposited on the ruby surface (material deposit). Very hard and rough surfaces, e.g. castings, on the other hand, cause abrasion of the sphere (material removal). The shape of the sphere changes as a result and loses accuracy. ZEISS uses carbide shafts for standard styli. These represent a good combination in terms of weight, rigidity and thermal expansion.Product note:Depending on the material of the styli and the workpiece, wear of the styli may occur. Therefore, we recommend to check the styli regularly for wear. Also remember to clean the styli or replace them if necessary. ZEISS stylus cleaning Wipes are available.To learn more about ZEISS styli, book our free stylus eLearning on the ZEISS eLearning platform.
