The Smart Measuring Lab by ZEISS

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.

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Launches New Rotary Tables for Optiv Performance 663/664

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.

The REVO multi-sensor system is one of Renishaw’s flagship products and enables CMM users to perform 5-axis measurement on a 3-axis co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM). It measures 1000s of points/sec and operates at speeds up to 500 mm/s. As the head is much lighter and more dynamic than the CMM, it is able to quickly follow changes in the part geometry without introducing harmful dynamic errors.
