Mitutoyo America Corp.’s QM-Height Series measures height, height difference (step), inside/outside widths, inside/outside diameters, circle pitch, and free-form surface max/min heights to ±(2.4+2.1L/600) μm. Simple-to-use control panel enables most measurements to be made with one keystroke.
The coordinate measuring machine (CMM) manufacturer is entering the portable measuring arm market with the Freedom line of 24 3D articulating arms. A 6-axis model for touch probing and a 7-axis version for multisensor metrology including laser scanning are available in two accuracy levels.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s R12 is a 12-megapixel version of the company’s AICON SmartScan white light scanner. The higher-resolution camera increases the accuracy of a system known for versatility and portability.
Software and hardware training for customers will be a major focus of the new location.
