There are two main styles of extensions used on most probe systems. The two styles offer unique capabilities based on touch probe style, the access to features, and capabilities of your CMM. CMM Probe Extension

The most common extension style is where the extension is used between the touch probe and stylus as shown above. This provides a low cost solution to most inspection needs. The concern that is raised by using this method is the increase in probe pre-travel and repeatability. The longer the extension, the greater the inaccuracies.

The second extension style is the use of extensions the mount between the probe head and touch probe body, as illustrated below in the kit table. This style moves the touch probe closer to your features and reduces potential probe error by reducing the length of the distance between the stylus ball and theĀ touch trigger probe.

Autojoint to M8 bush extension bars

CMM Style: Manual and DCC

The PAA family of extension/adapters are used with autojoint probeheads such as PH10M PLUS to allow use of M8 threaded probe systems. Through the use of the PAA adapters, the CMM can easily switch bewteen scanning operations using a SP25 scanning probe to tactile touch operations using a TP20 or similar M8 threaded mount.
