Brunson 230 Series Metrology Stand

Product Description

230 Series Heavy Duty Stands

One of our most popular series of metrology stands

Any of our 230 Series metrology stands are an excellent choice for average shop and plant requirements. This stand has a working height range from a minimum of 43″ (109 cm) to a maximum of 68.5″ (174 cm).

A variety of stand adapters, slides, lifts, and various instrument mounts fit into the intermediate tube. 

The 230 Series is also available in a “hollow” version, which means that there is an unobstructed vertical path straight down through the center of the stand. This is useful in certain applications when it is critical to position the stand over a specific point. Any stand or accessory designated as “hollow” has this characteristic.

Stands in this group are used to support all types of metrology instrumentation, from portable CMM arms to laser trackers and scanners, to theodolites, to laser alignment devices. Our customers are always putting something new on this stand, which attests to its popularity and flexibility. Stability is the keyword here; this stand maintains instrument position very well, but it is not the type of stand that you throw over your shoulder and carry around! Mobility around the shop floor is permitted using the drop-down casters under the heavy-duty tribrach base which are engaged and released by a foot pedal. An air-check mechanism provides backup protection to prevent sudden drops of the instrument column in case the operator simultaneously releases the collar lock and main handle while disengaging the ratchet pawl.
