Low Tip Force Inductive Probes

AT – Feather Touch Spring Push
  • , ± 1, ± 2,5, ± 5, ± 10 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracies as low as 1 µm
  • Up to 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Tip force of 0.18N (options available)
  • IP50 Sealing
  • Spring acctuation

Feather Touch Probes have been designed to gauge delicate surfaces such as glass, thin sections, pharmaceutical products and tiny electro mechanical components. Whereas the traditional gauging probe exerts a force of 0.7N, the Feather Touch probe when operated horizontally exerts a mere 0.18N. This is achieved by replacing the naturally elastic gaiter with a close tolerance gland. On pneumatic versions air leakage through this gland is less than 2.5ml per second at 1 bar pressure, avoiding surface contamination while still providing a degree of cleaning the probe bearing.

AW/S – Feather Touch
  • ± 5mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracies as low as 1 µm
  • Up to 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Tip force of 0.3N
  • IP50 Sealing
  • Spring acctuation

The Ultra Feather Touch probe has so light a tip force, it is a viable alternative to a non-contact sensor in many applications. With various tips available in ruby and nylon, the UFT is already being used to check glass, rubber, semi-conductor wafers and other delicate materials.
