Brunson 233 Series Heavy Duty Metrology Stand

Product Description

233 Series Heavy Duty Stands

Shorter Version of the Popular 230 Series

The 233 Series metrology stands are virtually identical to the 230 Series, but are all somewhat shorter. This stand has a working height range from a minimum of 37″ (94 cm) to a maximum of 56.5″ (143.5 cm), as measured from the floor to the top of the intermediate tube, on which all instrument mount accessories are attached. The stand height specification quoted above does not include the added height and vertical range of any of our stand accessories or instrument adapters.

We have a number of stand adapters, slides, lifts, and various instrument mounts that fit into the intermediate tube. 

The 233 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. The stand has excellent stability; it 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.
