Alternative quill adaptor plates

Attaching the KM6080 quill adaptor plate

The KM6080 (60 mm × 60 mm) is attached to the quill using four screws. It is important to orientate the KM6080 on the quill such that the probe is aligned facing forwards (with the LED facing towards the front of the CMM).

Attaching the SM80 quill adaptor plate

Screw the shank firmly to the SM80 and offer it up to the quill. Slot the shank into the fixing mechanism of the CMM and tighten. Care should be taken to ensure that the SM80 is held as securely as possible. To ensure that the probe will be aligned facing forwards (with the LED facing towards the front of the CMM), position the SM80 in the quill such that the touchel connector is facing towards the rear of the quill (facing towards the rear of the CMM).

NOTE: Poor shank mounting can impair measuring accuracy and therefore this mounting method should be avoided wherever possible.
