Shanks

Shank

Shanks are used to mount the probe head to the quill of the machine.There are a range of shanks suitable for all Renishaw manual and motorised probe heads (except PH6 and MH20), as well as the TP1 probe. There is also a range which is specific to the PH6 and MH20. The correct shank must be chosen to suit the mounting facility of your CMM.

Standard base diameter for all shanks (except PH6 and MH20) is 41.35 mm - 41.45 mm (1.62 in - 1.63 in).

Standard base diameter for only PH6 and MH20 shanks is 18.9 mm - 19.1 mm (0.74 in - 0.75 in) unless otherwise stated.

All dimensions in mm (in).
