Werth Introduces New Fiber ProbeJuly 1, 2012
The Werth Fiber Probe can be as small as 20m in diameter to measure inside of small features such as tiny holes and slots. Previously, features under around 300m were either measured optically at the surface of the part or measured by inserting very small feeler gage pins. The first method provided no information about the characteristic inside the cylinder or slot. The second method generally provided whatever information the operator wanted to report. The self-illuminated sphere of the Fiber Probe is positioned via CNC positioning into the hole and slightly deflected on the workpiece. The sphere is mounted exactly in the focal plane of the optics and its deflected position is measured optically. Thus, accurate and repeatable measurements inside tiny features can now be made non-destructively on a production basis, the company said. Calculations of cylindricity, taper, perpendicularity and vector angles of holes are now possible with the Werth Fiber Probe.
