Renishaw Manual probe Heads
Adjustable Manual probe
An adjustable manual head gives a manual machine the added
capability of probe reorientation,
the probe to address the surface at the best angle to get
the most accurate result. Choose from a range of indexing or
If a manual machine has been chosen then fitting a system
that allows the probe tip to be orientated to inspect a
wider range of complex features can not only dramatically
reduce the total cycle time but enables more complex feature
measurement to be undertaken.
MH20 Manual swivelling probe head
The A axis rotates through 93 in the X-Y plane. The B
axis rotates through 300 in the Z plane. A thumbwheel
locks the swivel in any position. Qualification must
take place after each head adjustment and TP20 modules
can be changed repeatably.
MH20i Manual indexing probe head
The A axis rotates through 90 in the X-Y plane. The B
axis rotates through 180 in the Z plane. A lever locks
the head in one of up to 168 repeatable positions, set
at 15 increments.
MH8 Manual probe head
The MH8, positionally repeatable in 168 positions, is
designed for use on small manual CMMs with short probe
extensions and carries M8 probes.
MIH Manual indexing probe head
The manually indexable head - MIH - is positionally
repeatable in 720 positions. It features an LCD display
and Autojoint probe mounting. The MIH is designed for
use with long probe extensions for larger components.
The MIH-S (manual indexable head - serial) is an
enhanced version of the standard MIH which provides
feedback of status and lock position to the CMM computer
over an RS232 link via the MIH-SI interface.
PH1 Manual Probe Head
The A axis rotates through 115 in the X-Y plane locked
with hexagonal key. The B axis rotates through 360 in
the Z plane. This probe head is offset from the mounting
shank Z axis.
PH5 Manual Probe Head
This is a 5-way fixed head, which accomodates up to five
The PH5/1 model incorporates B axis rotating through 360
and limited overtravel protection.
PH6 Manual Probe Head
This is a compact, vertical probe head for a single
probe, with a choice of integral cables.
The PH6A is designed for use with autojoint probes and
allows you to change probes or add exstentions without
having to requalify the probe.
The PH6M is a fixed head with autojoint connection for
probes and adaptors, for use with TP7M, SP600M and
