Diamond!Scan© pure Stylus M3 XXT, DK3 L50, ThermoFit
✔ Diamond spheres for maximum longevity
✔ Surface resistant to traces of materials resulting from the measuring process
✔ ZEISS ThermoFit shaft for high stiffness with low weight
and low thermal linear expansion
✔ Straight shaft with longer measuring length
✔ Proven ZEISS quality through the use of selected materials
Spherical styli have the largest field of application because they have the same probing behavior in every direction. They are therefore suitable for all common measuring tasks such as measuring bores and surfaces. The larger the stylus sphere size, the larger the mechanical filter. This means that the profile of your workpiece is smoothened, which is often required in form measurement. The deviation from the ideal sphere shape is usually shown in "Grade". ZEISS styli spheres have Grade 5 as standard, but can also be offered in a higher Grade 3 for special requirements. Styli with a straight shaft are the most simple designed styli. The full shaft length can be used as measuring length.
Diamond styli are characterized by their long durability. They are extremely resistant to material deposits and removal. They are, therefore, the ideal tool to use for measuring hard surfaces such as ceramics or for continous measuring on sharp edges. Diamond styli are recommended to be used especially when mostly one segment of the sphere is used while scanning e.g. surfaces. Several institutions such as the German PTB recommend diamond sytli for form measurements with the rotary table. ZEISS ThermoFit stems made of carbon fiber represent an optimum combination of stiffness, weight and thermal expansion. This makes them suitable for particularly demanding measuring tasks.
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 Styli Cleaning Wipes are available.
