Solartron Metrology contact digital gauging probes or displacement sensors provide the gauge builder with the most cost-effective solution for a range of dimensional precision measurement and positioning applications.
A pneumatic displacement sensor (gauge probe) allows the number of parts in the fixture to be reduced resulting in improved reliability and reduced fixture cost. It also allows for fast automatic loading of the part into the gauge as the displacement probe tip can be in the fully ‘retract position’ when this is occurring.
The benefit of using a pneumatic push displacement sensor (gauge probe) compared to a spring push probe is that there is less need to design mechanisms to bring the contact senor tip onto the part being measured thus simplifying the overall gauge design. A pneumatic displacement sensor (gauge probe) allows the number of parts in the fixture to be reduced resulting in improved reliability and reduced fixture cost.
