Coordinate Measuring Machines Provide a Range of Capabilities

Gear Expo 2017: Zeiss will introduce its line of DuraMax coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) for application flexibility.

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.
