Features of the Centering Gauge Swing Type 

  • Centering Gauge Swing Type is the ultra-high precision 3D touch sensor (probe) with higher quality than that of Point Finder series.
    Use it for all kinds of measurements such as for reference position, inside/outside diameters, centering, angle, groove width, and height.
  • Supersensitive CT board is built-in the Centering Gauge Swing Type and it doesn't cause 'Chattering' phenomenon.
     ※Chattering: When the stylus touches to a workpiece, the LED flashes on and off
      because of the variation of both voltage and current occured by electrical resistance.
  • Thin workpiece is measurable because the contact pressure between the stylus and workpiece is lower.
  • It doesn't cause the triangle error.
  • Iron and nonferrous metal materials are measurable. It's unaffected by oil film.
    Use "Point Finder-i" [Internal Contact Type] for measuring metal and nonmetal materials such as plastic, wood, etc. →【Point Finder series】
  • Safety design enables the stylus swing toward X, Y and Z-axes directions and prevents the Centering Gauge Swing Type itself from breakage. Especially, swing width toward X and Y-axis is ±50mm !
  • All models have a buzzer. It beeps at the very same time when the stylus touches a workpiece and the LED emits.
  • With nonmagnetic stylus, magnetic force doesn't affect to the measuring.
    → Check the detail of 【Nonmagnetic Stylus】
  • Customized model with a connector (but no CT board) can take information as an external trigger code. However, the code is read out as analog signals, so it's neccesary to translate the analog signals into the digital ones.

Comparison between Swing Type and Point Finder [External] 

Centering Gauge Swint Type is the 3D touch sensor with higher pricision rather than Point Finder [External Contact Type].
Use Point Finder-i [Internal Contact Type] for the measurement of metal and nonmetal materials such as plastic, wood, etc. →

*1:'Repeatability' is a level to show the repeat accuracy of the standard stylus
  when it returns to the original position.
*2:You can change the size of stylus instead of the standard one.

How to measure 

  Centering Gauge Swing Type makes it possible to measure reference position, inside/outside diameters, centering, angle, groove width, and height. Those measurements are very important before the metal working.

 With Centering Gauge Swing Type, it is easy to measure the angle of narrow workpieces, which angle gauges can't measure, on the machine tools.


point finder makes it easy to measure angle of a workpiece.
