Mounting styli on the SH80 and styli orientation
Mounting styli on the SH80
It is recommended that the SH80 is removed from the probe body when attaching styli.
M5 stylus arrangements are directly screwed into the 5-way cube on the SH80. Where required, use step down adaptors to smaller thread styli, or select cubes and knuckles to create the required cluster. However wherever possible, M5 styli should be used to ensure the stiffness of construction.
The stylus cluster can be rotationally adjusted to its required position by adjustment of the 5-way cube as follows:
- Releasing the rotational clamping screw using the 2 mm across flats hexagonal key.
- Rotating the stylus cluster to the required position.
- Tighten the rotational clamping screw to torque of 1.0 Nm.
