Q-Mark Product Spotlight: Ultra-Light Styli

ULTRA-LIGHT STYLI

Ever-increasing accuracy requirements are driving probe sensor technology to higher levels of sensitivity. In many cases, this drive has reduced the amount of stylus weight that a probe sensor will tolerate. Q-Mark has responded to this need by producing a full line of ultra-light styli and stylus extensions.

In the pictures, three Q-Mark styli plus one 50 mm extension (Figure 1) weigh 4.40 grams, combined. By contrast, a newly minted nickel (Figure 2) weighs over half a gram more.

We achieve this extraordinary weight reduction by incorporating titanium and carbon fiber elements in our products. Since we do all the manufacturing and assembly, we can monitor the product weight at every step of the process. Titanium and carbon fiber offer the added benefit of very high stiffness-to-weight ratios.

If your CMM needs to go on a weight-loss campaign for the sake of accuracy, turn to Q-Mark for immediate gratification.
