At Control 2022 API presents the vProbe. vProbe achieves CMM-level accuracy when measuring components of any volume. It features automatic probe recognition, smart buttons, and has a working battery life of up to 8 hours. It offers tactile measuring sensor provides the ability to perform accurate CMM-style measurements directly on the production floor. Integrated with the API Radian Laser Tracker series, vProbe significantly enhances the measuring capabilities and functionalities of traditional Laser Trackers.
Accurate 3D measurements of internal and external features

vProbe is a wireless, hand-held, lightweight, tactile probe with easy hold grip that allows users to perform extended coordinate measuring functions by inspecting intricate internal and external features or part characteristics providing fast and accurate dimensional measurements. vProbe offers more versatility than a portable arm CMM, greater accuracy, and consistent measurements making it inherently more suitable for medium and large parts. The RFID probe stylus recognition feature of the New vProbe eliminates the need to manually select the probe stylus, ultimately removing potential for error. Additionally, Smart Buttons create a better user experience, minimizing trips to the computer to select common functions which are now integrated in the probe. Dynamic tactile scanning capability provides instant coordinate feedback, and the integrated battery provides up to 8 hours of measurement activity. Styli lengths up to 500mm with a variety of tip sizes can be accommodated.
