The DuraMax RT measuring machine from Zeiss Industrial Metrology is designed for in-line process control of gear wheels. Now equipped with a rotary table, the compact horizontal-arm measuring machine uses a precision system to turn the workpiece with the corresponding side facing the stylus. This enables the stylus system to capture information such as the geometry of the gear wheel in a simple process without repeatedly traveling to a new position, the company says. The rotary table can be freely positioned on the measuring plate and removed in just a few steps. Equipped with Zeiss’s measuring software, the DuraMax RT can also be used as a universal measuring machine when needed. Its benefits include a small footprint and lower power consumption, the company says.
