6″ Magnetic Mount for Portable CMM with 3-1/2″ Threaded Ring
Includes Black Hard Plastic Carrying Case
Magnetic Mounts are an excellent way to mount a portable CMM arm or laser tracker on a ferrous surface (like a steel plate or table). Some customers use them as a flexible mounting solution on a large steel table, or they may even mount them directly on the bed of a machine tool. Our magnetic mounts turn on and off using a hex key allen wrench so they can be quickly and easily be moved while measuring a large part on a table. In some cases, customers even use a mag mount to put the portable CMM right on the part being measured. This helps ensure that your part will not move relative to your measurement device. Our 6in magnetic mount is recommended for use with all portable measurement CMM arms, including those produced by FARO, Hexagon / Romer, Kreon, and Nikon (up to 12ft long). For measurement arms greater than 12ft in length, we recommend our 8in magnetic mount. We also recommend the 6in magnetic mount for use with the latest generation of smaller laser trackers, like the FARO Vantage S and FARO Vantage E, API Radian, API Omnitrac 2, API OT2 Core, Hexagon / Leica 401,402,403, and the Hexagon/ Leica 930 and 960. For previous generation laser trackers, like the Leica 902 or the FARO blue body laser trackers (including the Ion, Xi, X, Si and I models), we recommend the 8in version. In instances where you may need to mount a laser tracker horizontally on a wall or upside down, we always recommend the 8in version. Our magnetic mounts include a universal stainless steel 3-1/2″-8 mounting ring. Each mag mount is shipped in a hard case with custom foam to ensure that they are easy to transport to your work site. We also offer adapters for the 3-1/2″-8 ring for customers needing to use the magnetic mount with a 5/8″ thread for a laser scanner or tribrach, as an example. In all cases, we have you covered if you need to mount a portable CMM to a magnetic surface.
