The MCAx Manual Coordinate Measuring Arm - a precise, reliable and easy-to-use portable 7-axis measuring arm. It's the perfect partner for the ModelMaker MMDx/MMCx digital handheld laser scanners and Focus 10 Handheld scanning/inspection software. This total solution’s accuracy, capability and portability make it feel perfectly at home in the metrology lab, on the shop floor and in-the-field. The MCAx arm can be equipped with a wide range of probing systems for laser scanning, touch-trigger measurements and continuous scanning. The new 7-axis MCAx range of articulated arms is available with a measurement volume ranging from 2.0 and 4.5 meter diameter.


 Nikon Metrology combines 50 years’ experience of Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) metrology with 25 years’ experience of X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) to develop a new “absolute accuracy” Metrology CT system. MCT225 provides Metrology CT for a wide range of sample sizes and material densities with 

9+ L/50 µm accuracy in accordance with the VDI/VDE 2630 guideline. All internal and external geometry is measured efficiently in a single non-destructive process. A full 3D visualization of the sample volume additionally provides valuable insights into part deformations, porosity, and internal structural integrity.

Digital laser scanner LC15Dx from Nikon Metrology brings scanning to the range of tactile measurement accuracy -

 For over a decade, Nikon Metrology pioneered laser scanning and gradually sharpened the capabilities of this non-contact measuring technology. Nikon’s superior optics combined with innovative 3D laser scanning technology resulted in this new, groundbreaking Nikon scanner. The LC15Dx digital laser scanner is a new milestone, as it brings laser scanning in the accuracy range of tactile inspection. LC15Dx is a viable alternative to a tactile probe for an increasing number of high precision CMM applications, including molds, small turbine blades, medical devices and other complex geometry.

Applying New Laser-Scanning Technology
Here’s why many of today’s manufacturers are considering retrofitting CMMs and articulated measuring arms with laser scanners.

High-Resolution Microscope Provides Large Depth of Field
Nikon Metrology offers the NeoScope II, a high-resolution scanning electron microscope (SEM) that produces images with a large depth of field at magnifications.

Nikon Metrology Partners With Penske Racing
Penske says Nikon technology will aid its continuous improvement efforts.

Nikon Opens New Tech Center
Nikon Metrology recently hosted more than 100 metrology and manufacturing professionals to introduce a new Technology Center at its American headquarters in Brighton, Michigan.   Brighton Mayor Ricci Bandkau was on-hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and Gary Vasilash, editor-in-chief of “Automotive Design and Production” keynoted with an address on the state of the automotive industry. (“Automotive Design and Production” is a property of Gardner Publications, which also publishes “Modern Machine Shop.”)   With the theme “Advances in Industrial Metrology,” the opening event offered technology overviews and demonstrations of various new and updated products.

Transforming Industrial Robots into Precision Machine Tools
Robots fitted with an adaptive control system get real-time course corrections throughout the machining cycle.

Multi-Sensor, 3D Metrology System Inspects Complex Shapes
Nikon Metrology’s HN-6060 next-generation, non-contact inspection system features   advanced laser scanning, a five-axis synchronized hardware control, a stiff design and powerful processing software.

Portable CMMs Driven by Common Software Platform
Nikon Metrology (Brighton, Michigan) and Verisurf Software (Anaheim, California) have reached an agreement that enables manufacturers to drive all Nikon portable metrology devices from Verisurf’s common software platform.

Metris Rebrands To Nikon Metrology
Nikon has purchased inspection system manufacturer Metris, which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary rebranded under the name Nikon Metrology. The companies say the merger will synergize their strengths in technology, marketing and services to deliver metrology products with a broad application reach to a worldwide customer base.

Metris Inaugurates New Facility
Metris has inaugurated a new manufacturing facility in Manasssas, Virginia, centralizing production of all its large-volume metrology products. The new facility merges two former offices that originally served as headquarters to ArcSecond and MetricVision, respectively, before Metris acquired both firms in recent years. The 30,000-square-foot facility houses 60 employees and is located in Prince William Technology Park on Innovation Drive.
