ACCURACY AND SIMPLICITY COMBINED WITH PORTABILITY
The HandyPROBE™ line-up is a portable optical CMM specifically designed for use on the shop floor. Thanks to its metrology-grade accuracy and dynamic referencing capabilities, the HandyPROBE delivers unmatched accuracy regardless of the measurement setup, instabilities of the environment and user experience level. Without the requirements of a rigid measurement setup, the complete measuring system—the part, optical tracker, and wireless probe—can all be moved freely at any time during the measurement sequence. The HandyPROBE is simply the best metrology solution for measuring geometrical entities on parts of any size directly on the production floor.
Achieve Metrology-grade Accuracy
The HandyPROBE is your go-to portable optical CMM to acquire highly accurate, reliable and repeatable 3D measurements—right on the shop floor.
- Dynamic referencing
Optical reflectors ensure that accuracy is never compromised because of shop floor conditions.
- Reliable acceptance test
The HandyPROBE’s acceptance test follows the ISO 10360-12 standard and is ISO 17025 accredited.
- Measure parts with a wide range of sizes
Get accurate measurements of parts ranging from 0.2 to 6 meters (0.7 to 20 feet) in size.
- Metrology-grade measurements
Benefit from an accuracy of 0.025 mm (0.0009 in) with a traceable certificate.
- Consistent accuracy over time
No accuracy drift over time in your quality control workflows thanks to an easy field calibration procedure.
Take it Anywhere. Use it Anywhere.
Because there is no physical link between the probe and system, the HandyPROBE can easily be brought to wherever the part is for maximum adaptability.
- Arm-free system
Tackle any inspection, anywhere, with ease thanks to an arm-free system that offers unprecedented freedom of movement.
- Versatile measurement capabilities
Measure objects of any size or geometry with confidence.
- Take it anywhere
The system, tripod and accessories fit into a single, portable carrying case for easy travelling to remote production sites.
