The adapter plate is the central interface between the CMM and your workpiece. Especially at the interface to the probe you cannot make any compromises. Or can you estimate what an adapter plate made of cheaper material will do in the overall system of your coordinate measuring machine? Original ZEISS adapter plates are manufactured exclusively by ZEISS in Germany. The quality is constantly monitored in accordance with our strict testing procedures.
ZEISS Adapter Plates
Avoid incorrect measurements and incorrect operation
ZEISS adapter plates identify the stylus system via an integrated ID chip in the measuring software and thus prevent operating errors and incorrect measurements. Another advantage: With the originals, more information such as measuring force or angle of the active probe system is available on the control panel display. The adapter plates are available to suit the respective systems: ZEISS VAST, VAST XXT, XTR, RDS or ST/ST3. Benefit from adapter plate packages, where you can obtain a number of adapter plates at a reduced price.
Accelerate stylus change and measuring time
Only with original ZEISS adapter plates can you use features such as a quick stylus change that shorten your measuring processes. The Quick Change function allows you to perform stylus change up to 60% faster, thus saving you up to 14 seconds per stylus change. This is worthwhile for complex workpieces that require several stylus changes. The FlyScan function allows the stylus to move straight over a recess and continue scanning on the other side without interruption. Nevertheless, the software evaluates the correct measuring points. Depending on the workpiece, this process can save up to 70 percent of the measuring time, e.g. for a tip circle measurement on a gear. For accuracy reasons and chip compatibility, these performance optimizations are only possible with original ZEISS adapter plates.
