Werth WFP/S: The Most Successful Microprobe in the World – Now in Freeform Scanning Mode
The Werth Fiber Probe, with multiple patents, has been used exclusively with Werth coordinate measuring machines for many years. Due to its outstanding properties, such as maximum precision paired with very small probe sphere diameters, it has been proven many times over in the marketplace. With several hundred installations, it is by far the most successful microprobe in the world. With modern signal processing and 64-bit control technology, a freeform scanning mode is now possible without the use of predefined contours. The user simply selects the start and end points for the scan path and the sensor follows the unknown contour automatically.
Software integration is completely analogous to the functions of conventional measuring probes. This makes it easier for the user to operate. With negligible contact force in the µN range, the Fiber Probe ensures that work pieces will not be damaged, even when scanning freeform contours. The probe shank length, probe electronics, sensor offset and sensor drift have negligible effects on the measurement results. Another advantage is simple operation while observing the probe sphere with the camera.
The versatile WFP/S can be used in medical technology (implants), the watch industry (miniature gears) and automotive technology (fuel injection systems).
