Spherical styli have the largest field of application because they have the same probing behavior in every direction. They are therefore suitable for all common measuring tasks such as measuring bores and surfaces. The larger the stylus sphere size, the larger the mechanical filter. This means that the profile of your workpiece is smoothened, which is often required in form measurement. The deviation from the ideal sphere shape is usually shown in Grade. ZEISS styli spheres have Grade 5 as standard, but can also be offered in a higher Grade 3 for special requirements. Styli with a straight shaft are the most simple designed styli. The full shaft length can be used as measuring length.
Silicon nitride styli are just as universally applicable as ruby styli. However, they show less material deposits when scanning aluminum or other soft materials. ZEISS uses carbide shafts for standard styli. These represent a good combination in terms of weight, rigidity and thermal expansion.
Depending on the material of the styli and the workpiece, wear of the styli may occur. Therefore, we recommend to check the styli regularly for wear. Also remember to clean the styli or replace them if necessary. ZEISS Styli Cleaning Wipes are available.
