High-throughput CMM laser interferometry surface measurement systems
can be negatively affected by plant low-frequency vibrations, which can distort the interferometry measurements and deliver inaccurate readings. Here's how to prevent that from happening.
Retrofitting CMMs or articulated arms with new laser scanners is one affordable option among many that shops are considering.
Inspection of a bore in an open setup often requires multiple measurement steps and mathematical calculations, but portable CMM technology from FARO can alleviate much of this work by allowing the user to fix the part in one spot, take several points to create an alignment of X- and Y-axes, and measure the bore. Software then determines the position of the bore and its deviation from the called out position.
Their new ROMER Absolute Arm provides 3D scanning that measures any type of part with minimal alterations, regardless of the material or shape.
Their purchase of CMI Technology will allow them to control quality and delivery time frames for components they manufacture for their LM and HB Series CMMs.
They are awarded $100,000 to develop technology that will reduce CMM set-up time and increase reliability of the operator interface.
The new HP-S-X1 scanning probe series from Hexagon has been redesigned for greater durability and improved setup flexibility without the need to change modules.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the metrology equipment and systems that will be exhibited on the show floor at McCormick Place in Chicago from September 12-17.
The new ROMER Absolute Arm 77 Series PCMM from Hexagon is ideal for safety-critical applications in aerospace, defense, medical, and more.
