CMM Provides In-Process Measurement without Setup, Breakdown
Smart Manufacturing Experience 2018: The Mach Ko-ga-me coordinate measuring machine (CMM) from Mitutoyo is designed to be fast, compact, lightweight and easy to mount, making it suitable for automated cells.
The Mach Ko-ga-me coordinate measuring machine (CMM) from Mitutoyo is designed to be fast, compact, lightweight and easy to mount, making it suitable for automated cells.
The company guarantees temperature accuracy from 10° to 35°C for flexibility and performance. It can be mounted on on the machine tool frame. It provides CMM capabilities without the space requirements of a full-sized machine as well as in-process measurement without setup and breakdown, according to the company. The three-axis CNC measuring head is designed for accuracy, speed and flexibility for a range of configurations and inspection applications both in the lab and during the manufacturing process. As a standalone inspection system in the quality lab or in the manufacturing environment it functions like any other CMM, measuring parts individually or with part programs. As a process inspection system within computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), it can be implemented near-line with human part loading or in-line with robotic part loading for automated closed-loop control process.
Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.
Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.
Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
