Orbit® Low Tip Force Probes

DT/S – Spring Push
  • Low tip force as low as 0.18N (options available)
  • 2,5,10,20 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracies <0.1 µm
  • Better than 0.01 µm resolution
  • Better than 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Range of tips available
  • Spring actuation
  • IP50 sealing
  • Excellent sideload capability

Feather Touch transducers have been designed especially to gauge or measure delicate surfaces such as car windscreens, pharmaceutical bottles, electro-mechanical components and plastic parts. Where as a traditional transducer exerts a tip force of approximately 0.7 N, the Feather Touch exerts a mere 0.18 N when used in the horizontal position. This reduction is achieved by replacing the gaiter with a close tolerance gland.

DT/P – Pneumatic Push
  • Low tip force as low as 0.18N (options available)
  • 2,5,10,20 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuraciey <0.1 µm
  • Better than 0.01 µm resolution
  • Better than 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Range of tips available
  • Pneumatic actuation
  • IP50 sealing

DW/S – Spring Push
  • Ultra Low tip force as low as 0.03 to 0.06N
  • 10 mm measuring range
  • Accuracy as low as <0.1 µm
  • Better than 0.01 µm resolution
  • Better than 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Nylon and Ruby tips available
  • Spring actuation
  • IP50 sealing

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 in ruby and nylon the UFT is already being used to check glass, rubber, semiconductor wafers and other delicate materials.
