For each gear type, the software has a unique set of definitions, evaluation algorithms and reporting graphics conveniently packaged in one add-on module, making it easy for users to bring a new capability to their existing CMM. The module supports alignment of the gear axis during measurement using any of the three CMM axes and traditional touch…
Unlike traditional bridge CMMs, the AEROS main structure of support pillars and longitudinal guideways remains static, with only the gantry beam assembly moving during measurement. The open design is extremely adaptable, providing full access to the work area during loading and unloading of parts. It is particularly well suited to SMART factories…
CAMIO 2021 Geometry Validation reduces the time taken when preparing new inspection programs by automatically detecting which surfaces of the CAD model should be used to measure the feature. It ensures that all measurements are taken on suitable surfaces automatically and at the same time provides the programmer with the option to modify the…
The horizontal arm CMMs are supplied in three ranges – the LY-90T table version, LY-90R rail version with single or twin arms, and the shop floor ready HD-90 rail version with single or twin arms, which has been developed specifically for quality control of vehicle bodies and sub-assemblies in car plants.
In terms of speed, all machines now accelerate at 1,900 mm/s2, representing an increase of 15% for the two smaller models and 20% for the largest model. Velocity is up by 38% across the product range to 720 mm/s. As regards accuracy, maximum permissible measuring error on all machines is now 1.7+L/333 µm when measurements are taken of a feature L…
Called FREEDOM ULTIMATE and FREEDOM ULTIMATE SCAN, the new arms are available with measurement volumes from 2.5 to 4.5 metres, according to model. Each complements the comparable size of existing FREEDOM CLASSIC and higher accuracy FREEDOM SELECT products with six axes designed for touch probing, as well as the 7-axis SCAN equivalents for multi-…
The compact StyliCleaner, which has a 70mm (2.8in) x 100mm (3.9in) footprint, is available in two sizes, StyliCleaner8 and StyliCleaner16, designed to decontaminate styli from 0 to 8mm (0.31in) and from 6mm (0.24in) to 16mm (0.62in) in diameter, respectively. The separate control unit may be positioned on the CMM table, or if space is limited it…
Consistent with the aims of Industry 4.0, the new Metrology Gate portal provides remote access to information on the status and performance of all connected metrology devices. Information available includes measurement results and a summary of errors, a record of program changes, uptime of the CMMs and OEE (overall equipment effectiveness).…
CMM manufacturer LK Metrology has for the first time diversified into the supply of 3D articulating arm metrology systems with the launch of a range of 24 portable measuring arms called “Freedom.”
A range of coordinate measuring machines has been introduced by British manufacturer LK Metrology that offer high accuracy and repeatability in a compact footprint. Manufactured at the company's factory near Derby, the new ALTERAC machines are available in three sizes - 7.7.5, 10.7.5, and 10.7.7 - their respective X-, Y- and Z-axis movements…
LK Metrology Inc. has introduced a new ALTERA coordinate measuring machine called the SCANtek 5, which is coupled with Renishaw’s REVO-2 scanning system and multiple-sensor technology to offer manufacturers a 5-axis solution for inspecting dimensional accuracy and surface finish of components.
Metrology software has challenges in most application environments, and LK Metrology’s new 8.5 version of its CAMIO coordinate measuring machine software has a range of new features to help meet those challenges.
LK Metrology Inc. has undertaken a targeted CMM assistance program for medical equipment manufacturers that is fully functional and ready to support and enhance their manufacturing capabilities during the COVID-19 crisis.
Part of the RENK group, Horstman is a manufacturer and global supplier of suspension systems for heavily armored and tracked vehicles. It also produces safety-critical engineering components allied to its core products for the sub-sea and aerospace industries. Because of the critical nature of its products, the company has invested in new CMM…
Nightforce Optics in Orofino, Idaho, manufacturers riflescopes and other high-precision optics. To achieve quality specifications, the company upgraded its technology with a new CMM that supports a probe.
WLR Precision Engineering is a contract machining specialist in Wilford, Nottinghamshire, and the company was using a pair of 15-year-old coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) in its inspection room. Looking to upgrade the technology, WLR Precision invested in two CMMs manufactured by LK Metrology. Soon, they had largely superseded the older CMMs. 
At the U.S. transmission plant of a global automotive manufacturing group, component inspection times have been reduced by half or more by upgrading the company’s coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) to incorporate 5-axis scanning technology in addition to touch probing.
