Hole measurement probe now Wi-Fi enabled
08 June 2021
RIFTEK RF609 series laser triangulation probes are specifically designed for precision geometric measurement and inspection of small inner diameter holes, typically from 9 to 48mm.
Now available with full support from Riftek’s exclusive UK and Ireland distribution partner, Ixthus Instrumentation, a newly released version adds a Wi-Fi interface to the device to facilitate wireless measurement of borehole diameter.
Developed for use as part of a CNC machine’s automatic tool changing system, these ultracompact measurement probes measure the distance to the hole surface as the probe is rotated and moved axially into the hole; synchronously measuring the polar surface coordinates which are interpreted through PC software to build a 3D geometric model pattern with micron level accuracy.
The device is available in two measurement versions allowing a range of inner diameter measurements to be made: 9 to 19mm or 16 to 48mm diameter with maximum bore length of 139 and 143 mm respectively. Both probes feature the 48 mm diameter main controller, battery and Wi-Fi housing with an extended shaft that houses the laser triangulation sensor scanning head. A 16 mm diameter shaft facilitates straightforward collet mounting on the CNC.
