These systems use a CMM bridge design on both models and are mounted on air bearings that are controlled by a newly designed joystick, providing rapid motorized positioning of the X, Y and Z axes.
The Value model is available as a standard vision measuring machine, a multi-sensor measuring system with touch probe measuring capability and can be converted into a touch-probe CMM by removing the ring light and attaching either the Tesastar m M8 or Tesastar i M8 probe kits. Consecutively, these are programmable manual and motorized articulating probe heads.
The Universal model is available as a multi-sensor system with optical measuring capability, a TTL laser sensor and touch trigger probes.
Both models include a motorized 12x zoom, color camera, and they come standard with white LED multi-ring/multi-segment ring light, back light and coaxial Illumination. The Universal is available with a red LED ring light and a black and white camera as well.
Parts as large as 16" × 20" × 12" (400 × 500 × 300 mm) (depending on configuration) can be measured on both models. Speed is 300 mm/sec with acceleration of 1,400 mm/sec2 in the X and Y axes with speed of 0.05 mm/sec to 200 mm/sec and acceleration of 1,000 mm/sec2 in the Z axis.
