Formtracer Extreme CS-5000CNC / CS-H5000CNC Measurement Systems Mitutoyo - Indicate Technologies

Formtracer Extreme CS-5000CNC / CS-H5000CNC

The Formtracer Extreme CS-5000CNC/ CS-H5000CNC measurement device achieves fast and precise measurements by simultaneously capturing surface roughness and contour in a single trace. It operates at high speeds while maintaining high levels of accuracy.

Product Features 

The Z1-axis detector is equipped with an anti-collision safety device that automatically halts the machine in case of a collision between the main body and a workpiece.

Models featuring the a-axis allow the detector unit to be power tilted, facilitating uninterrupted measurements on both horizontal and inclined surfaces.

Models with the Y-axis table enable positioning in the Y-axis direction, expanding the measuring range to accommodate multiple workpieces.
The remote control unit enables secure, effortless, and swift measurements.

The key tops display icons for easy identification of the currently selected axis, providing convenient guidance for operators.

Technical Specifications


Technical Data

The Formtracer Extreme CS-5000CNC/ CS-H5000CNC measuring device integrates a Mitutoyo Laser Holoscale in the X1- and Z1-axes to achieve precise and simultaneous measurements of surface roughness and contours. 

The Z1-Axis detector uses an active control technique, enabling a broad range of measurement capabilities while maintaining consistent dynamic measuring force. With fast drive speeds in its X1- and Z2 axes, the unit allows rapid positioning and enhances efficiency for accurate measurements on multiple profiles and workpieces.
