M5

M5 extensions are tailored to VAST stylus systems. Their diversity unites the material (length 40 mm) and its unique processing: They are based on bending and torsion-resistant carbon fiber technology, which ranks higher than the metal solutions even in the lower price segment. With three available versions, ZEISS REACH CFX 1, CFX 3 and CFX 5, the extensions correspond to the accuracy level of the respective coordinate measuring machine.

Our portfolio for M5 stylus extensions

Our portfolio for M5 stylus extensions

The extremely flexurally and torsionally stiff carbon fiber extensions, manufactured exclusively by ZEISS, make it possible to replace metallic extensions, which - especially in the production environment, but also in the measuring room - are not sufficiently stable in length when exposed to temperature fluctuations to meet the requirements for measurement uncertainty. We recommend the following probe extensions for your measuring machines: ZEISS REACH CFX 1 for: ZEISS SPECTRUM, ZEISS CONTURA and comparable CMMs ZEISS REACH CFX 3 for: ZEISS PRISMO, ZEISS PRISMO fortis, ZEISS ACCURA and comparable CMMs ZEISS REACH CFX 5 for: ZEISS PRISMO verity, ZEISS PRISMO ultra, ZEISS MICURA, ZEISS XENOS and comparable CMMs
Suitable for your accuracy requirements

Suitable for your accuracy requirements

CFX 1 is on par with extensions made of titanium or aluminum in terms of price, but performs significantly better than metal in terms of precision. CFX 3 is priced in the mid-range segment, with significantly higher accuracy than CFX 1 extensions. CFX 5 rounds off the portfolio and meets the highest technical demands. This quality is unsurpassed on the market. At the same time, the higher-quality extension can be used to achieve higher accuracy even with machines in the lower price segment. Or, to put it another way : high-quality ZEISS REACH CFX carbon fiber extensions prevent a downgrade in machine accuracy.
