PHS-2

PHS-2 is designed to meet the arduous requirements of 'body-in-white' measurement, where fine angular position and long reach are needed.PHS-2 arm

System components

PHS-2 head

The PHS-2 servo positioning head features continuous servo drive in two axes, enabling the probe configuration to be positioned at almost any angle.

The PHS-2 head is not locked into position in the same way as a PH10 PLUS indexing head. Instead it is driven to the required position and, when a probing point is taken, the axes of the head latch simultaneously with the axes of the CMM to give accurate measurements.

A range of different probes can be fitted and automatically exchanged. These include touch-trigger probes and third-party laser / optical sensors.

PHA kinematic adaptors

  • PHA1 is fitted to a PH10M PLUS / PH10T PLUS for rapid mounting to KM1 / KM2
  • PHA2 is fitted to a horizontally installed PH10M PLUS / PH10T PLUS for rapid mounting to KM1 / KM2
  • Enables programming of existing parts without needing to rewrite programs for the PHS-2

PHS kinematic mounts

  • Enable quick fixing of the PHS head to the CMM for fast interchange with other heads
  • KM1 is designed for through quill cabling
  • KM2 is designed for round quill cabling
