Attaching the KM80 quill adaptor plate
Mounting the SP80 and SP80H on the CMM via the KM80 is the recommended method due to its inherent stiffness, as well as the reduced overall Z length when compared to the alternative mounting options (KM6080 or SM80). The KM80 has the same mechanical footprint as the PH10MQ (80 mm × 80 mm), and is attached to the CMM quill using 4 × M3 or M4 screws in the corners of the plate. Orientate the KM80 to the CMM axis as shown below, such that the front of the SP80 probe (as indicated by the LED) faces forward.
