Perceptron has extended the range of its high performance COORD3 'UNIVERSAL' coordinate measuring machines by introducing the 7.7 model, offering 1000mm x 700mm x 700mm measuring range and the revolutionary new Perceptron ScanR™ laser scanner.
"Larger models of COORD3 UNIVERSAL Bridge CMM were initially launched into the vertical bridge CMM market two years ago; the latest model line addition extends the reach of the UNIVERSAL into the largest CMM market sector offering a tremendous opportunity for further brand growth," says Elliott Mills, Perceptron's CMM Product and Sales Director.
The UNIVERSAL CMM applies a 'design-for-manufacture' focus dramatically reducing CMM assembly and calibration times allowing COORD3 to compete in all global markets even against low-cost Chinese CMM manufacturing operations used by many big name competitors.
The UNIVERSAL CMM's utilizes a high-technology alloy moving frame design that provides the benchmark for dynamics and measuring accuracy performance. This design overcomes the issues associated with operating traditional granite CMM structures, in the typical, less than perfect, CMM operating environments.
UNIVERSAL also includes an 'industry-first' wireless CMM thermal compensation system of both machine and part, allowing the measuring system to automatically and dynamically compensate for changes in the CMM operating environment. Gold-plated 0.1µm measuring scales are free-floating in support tracks, eliminating any CMM structural changes from influencing its measuring accuracy.
UNIVERSAL CMM's provide a highly rigid structural coordinate measuring platform, allowing the use of point-to-point, analog contact scanning and the Perceptron laser scanning sensors. The very latest Perceptron ScanR™ Laser Scanning Sensor offers the world's first green CMM laser sensor allowing inspection of traditional difficult highly reflective parts integral in a fully automated inspection which included full geometrical feature extraction from the generated point-cloud in the supplied TouchDMIS software.
The COORD3Universal CMM family of machines is currently available in model sizes from (X) 1000 mm x (Y) 700 mm x (Z) 700 mm to 3000 mm x 1500 mm x 1200mm.
