Gram gauge and tools

  • Pérová váhaEnables the adjustment, reset and checking of probe trigger force settings on all standard Renishaw CMM touch-trigger probes
  • Setting the optimum trigger force using the gram gauge maximises a probe's performance
  • Can be used to set trigger force settings over a range from 4 grams to 35 grams
  • Scale graduations are set at 1 gram intervals which is sufficient for all probe force measurements on CMMs
  • Due to the use of SI units, the trigger force for probes is given in newtons - 1 gf = 0.01 N

    Trigger force is the amount of pressure applied by the helical compression spring onto the pivotal plate and bearing points to hold the stylus mount in place.
