Zeiss will introduce its line of DuraMax coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) for application flexibility. These machines said to handle challenging production environments while providing a range of capabilities, including the essentials, four-axis measurements with a rotary table and high-temperature-resistant options.

The rotary table option enables four-axis scanning with a footprint 60 percent smaller than the old design. Measuring rotationally symmetric parts such as shafts, bearing rings and gear wheels is more efficiently with a rotary table. To ensure stable measurements in high temperatures, the high-temperature gradient system has an operating temperature range ranging from 15 to 40°C. When just the essentials are needed, customers can choose the standard or table-top model.

All models are equipped with a Vast XXT single versatile sensor, which provides precise measurements of a broad range of materials, quickly capturing the contours of workpiece features and scanning in four axes when combined with the rotary table.
