Peak scanning performance guaranteed


Active scanning sensor

Ideal sensor for contact scanning

The active scanning sensor offers higher dynamics through optimized moving masses and higher rigidity resulting from optimized joints.



Fast scanning with navigator technology

ZEISS VAST gold is the ideal sensor for contact scanning and single-point measurements with long styli up to 800 mm and stylus weights up to 800 g. Asymmetrical stylus configurations can also be used with ZEISS VAST gold.

ZEISS VAST gold is also known for its high scanning speeds with navigator technology. Thanks to the integrated collision protection, ZEISS VAST gold is extremely robust. Dynamic damping enables continuous operation.

The probing force can be adjusted to the stylus geometry and the workpiece material, and is always constant – it can be programmed between 50 and 1,000 millinewtons.

VAST Gold enables tactile scanning and single point measurement with maximum performance.

Increased measuring performance

In combination with navigator technology in particular – object-oriented ZEISS CALYPSO software featuring automatically generated measurement strategies – ZEISS VAST gold increases the measuring performance and thus productivity considerably. The FlyScan and QuickChange technologies in the Performance Package ensure maximum productivity.

The short travel path on FlyScan results in time savings of up to 40 percent. The QuickChange function accelerates the automatic change out of measuring styli by up to 60 percent.

Highest flexibility

With the ZEISS Articulating Stylus, the stylus can be adjusted to any angular position between -135° and 135°. A new angular position can be set in just a few seconds, saving both time and storage space for fixed position stylus systems.

Due to the combination with the high-precision ZEISS VAST gold measuring head, the stability of the articulating stylus delivers high accuracy.
