A clean stylus ball on a CMM or Equator is key to achieving repeatable metrology results. Contaminant build up on the
stylus ball from general use (especially when scanning) can lead to poor metrology results; in order to combat this,
frequent inspection and cleaning of the stylus ball will ensure that results are as accurate as possible.
OPTiMUM™ diamond styli range for extreme measurement applications. OPTiMUM diamond styli offer long-lasting scanning performance in demanding applications. The range has been specifically developed for use within metrology applications that require a hard-wearing stylus. The principal advantage of its chemical vapour deposition (CVD) diamond-coated spheres is that they will maintain their roundness and will not suffer from material ‘pick up’ or premature wear when
scanning abrasive materials or soft aluminium alloys.
