5-Axis CMM's Now Built for Smart Factory Environment

To meet demand for 100 percent part inspection, the ability to process big data and measure complex features in a smart factory environment, Advanced Industrial Measurement Systems (AIMS) has engineered coordinate measurement machines (CMMs) that can perform fast, accurate inspections and gather intelligence.

AIMS' Revolution Series HB Shop Floor CMM is fitted with a Renishaw 5-axis PH20 probe head. Its lab-grade Revolution Series LM is fitted with a Renishaw 5-axis REVO 2 which is able to collect work piece data with 2D and 3D tactile probes, a surface roughness measurement probe or non-contact vision probe.

The HB has a polymer cast base that includes vibration resistance and thermal stability. The only 5-axis mobile CMM in the industry, the HB monitors data process flow in real time because the PH20 quickly obtains high-density points for feature size, location and form for accurate and actionable data. The hard bearing machine doesn't require air and can be moved on to the shop floor to gather data at the point of use.

The lab-grade LM is built with linear motors that work off of permanent magnets that don't wear out. Electronic signals are sent to the motor, using the natural force of the magnet to generate a small magnetic field that interacts with the magnets. The result is precise positioning and reliability along with little to no maintenance. The LM has a granite work plate and aluminum mobile bridge for higher rigidity and lower inertia.

AIMS engineers will be available at IMTS to talk about the HB and LM along with the OEM's total aftermarket support program and retrofit services along with Renishaw MODUS software.
