Styli with M3 thread suitable for ZEISS RST, Renishaw SP and Hexagon HP-S sensors. M3 styli can also be connected to other thread systems using the appropriate adaptors and connecting elements. Styli spheres are made of ruby or silicon nitride. In addition to the standard spherical styli, cylindrical styli made of tungsten carbide and ruby are also available. The standard straight shaft is made of tungsten carbide, but a stepped shaft is also available to provide additional stiffness.
Styli with straight shaft are used for all standard applications.
Styli with stepped shaft for easy accessible parts requiring small spheres.
Cylinder styli measure two-dimensionally and are used to measure thin sheets narrow workpiece edges.
Tip styli are used for self-centering probing of grooves or very small bores.
