The probing detection mechanism in tactile micro CMMs is a crucial factor in improving a probing error and measurement uncertainty and thus, over the last decade, the research and development activities related with probing detection systems have become a key focus for micro-CMMs[1][2][3]. However, in recent years, the trend of research in the field have shifted on possibility to reduce the dimensions of the stylus system itself. This is due to the increasing volume of complex micro-parts being manufactured. In this paper, current available of stylus system that have been develop for the micro-CMM will be reviewed. The critical factors and parameters in reducing the dimension of styli from the smallest dimensions (of the order of 100 μm) to a diameter of 10 μm or lesswill be investigated.
