Reference Spheres/Bodies (29)
Sphere diameter and surface condition of calibration Spheres depend on the type of coordinate measuring machine, sensors and probe Sphere size. Especially with small probe Sphere diameters, for example, it is important to use a suitable calibration Sphere to avoid shaft interference. With optical sensors, a matt Sphere surface is required for reliable measurement.
Which body for what?Reference spheres made of ceramic are available in different sizes, all of which can be mounted on Sphere holders with M6 thread. The following sizes and variants are recommended:
Probe Spheres < 1 mm: Measuring Sphere 8 mm
Probe Spheres 1-2 mm: Measuring Sphere 15 mm
Probe Spheres > 2 mm: Measuring Sphere 25-30 mm
Measuring rings are used to calibrate optical-tactile measuring instruments (e.g. ZEISS O-INSPECT). Optical templates are suitable for calibrating the ViScan camera and other 2D sensors. A calibration strip is required for self-centering probing at one point, for example to calibrate the rotary table axis of a CMM. All measuring bodies are supplied with a calibration certificate.
