Riftek’s RF609 series inner diameter hole measurement probe now Wi-Fi enabled
Riftek RF609 series laser triangulation probes are specifically designed for precision geometric measurement and inspection of small inner diameter holes, typically from 9 mm to 48 mm. Now available, with full support from Riftek’s exclusive UK and Ireland distribution partner Ixthus Instrumentation, a newly released version adds a Wi-Fi interface to the device to facilitate wireless measurement of borehole diameter.
Developed for use as part of a CNC machine’s automatic tool changing system, these ultra-compact measurement probes measure the distance to the hole surface as the probe is rotated and moved axially into the hole; synchronously measuring the polar surface coordinates, which are interpreted through PC software to “build a 3D geometric model pattern with micron-level accuracy”.
The new RF609 Wi-Fi is a rechargeable battery-powered device, supplied as a complete system, with mains charger, cables, PC software and a detailed operation manual.
Two measurement versions
The device is available in two measurement versions, allowing a range of inner diameter measurements to be made: 9 to 19 mm or 16 to 48 mm diameter with maximum bore length of 139 and 143 mm respectively.
Both probes feature the 48 mm diameter main controller, battery and Wi-Fi housing, with an extended shaft that houses the laser triangulation sensor scanning head. A 16 mm diameter shaft facilitates straightforward collet mounting on the CNC.
