Due to their high level of precision, measurements performed with coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) will be a key part of the Smart Factory. At the Control trade fair in Stuttgart from 9-12 May 2017, ZEISS will show visitors how the measuring lab can be networked intelligently in the future.
Renishaw, a world leader in precision engineering technologies, will be exhibiting its extensive range of metrology and additive manufacturing systems on two stands at EMO Hannover 2017 which takes place in Germany from 18 – 23 September 2017. Intelligent machining processes are critical to companies that want to exploit the full benefits of Industry 4.0 and throughout its main stand (hall 6, B46) Renishaw will demonstrate the power of integrating its latest measurement technologies within a manufacturing process.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has extended the accessory range for the Optiv Performance 663 and Optiv Performance 664 coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) by adding two new computer numeric control (CNC) rotary tables and the Optiv Dual Rotary CNC stacked rotary tables as options, substantially widening the application potential of the multisensor machines.
Renishaw will be exhibiting its extensive range of metrology equipment at Control 2017 which takes place in Stuttgart, Germany, from 9 – 12 May 2017. Products highlighted in hall 4, stand 4304, will include a new surface finish probe for co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs), new software for the Equator™ flexible gauge which allows users to fully integrate the system with CNC machine tools, and a new high productivity machining cell concept that demonstrates the power of integrating measurement technologies within a manufacturing process.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence today launched PC-DMIS 2017 R1, the latest edition of the world’s most popular measurement software. ‘R1’ is short for ‘Release 1’ as there are two major releases scheduled for PC-DMIS in 2017, with continued service pack updates to ensure maximum reliability of the platform.
