The Figa shopfloor coordinate measuring machine (CMM) from Coord3, a Perceptron company, is designed to perform demanding gaging operations on the production floor. Even with a minimal footprint, the machine provides a measuring volume of 600 × 560 × 500 mm. The horizontal bearing ways are completely enclosed and fully protected with no exposed cabling. High-resolution glass measuring scales provide a thermally inert measuring accuracy. Open access to the measurement space provides for ergonomic operator loading or applied automation.

The CMM can be equipped with any Renishaw touch trigger or scanning probes. An integrated probe or stylus change rack is rigidly mounted to the rear of the machine structure so it does not impede on the available measuring volume.

Using a standard pallet truck, users can relocate the Figa CMM to various inspection points on the shop floor. Anti-vibration leveling feet and a “plug-and-measure” design speed setup at the new gaging station without the need for compressed air.

TouchDMIS measuring software enables operation by shop operators, and part programs can be programmed for CAD either online or offline.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Raising the Bar with Ballbar Testing

    Few manufacturing companies rely on ballbar testing to maintain machine tool accuracy as thoroughly as Silfex. Now, advanced training and a move to a Renishaw QC20-W wireless system have enabled the company to take the benefits of ballbar testing to a higher level.
