As a result of new developments in the theoretical knowledge of the very smallest particles on the planet, some physicists are now calling into question the principle of equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass into question.
FARO®, one of the world’s most trusted sources for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM/CIM, public safety-forensics and 3D machine vision applications, introduces the new FARO® QuantumM FaroArm®. This addition rounds out the next generation FaroArm® portfolio led by the QuantumS FaroArm®, which was announced August 3, 2017.
Doncasters Precision Castings – Deritend, is a leading manufacturer of investment cast and machined industrial gas turbine airfoils. These airfoils are manufactured in nickel and cobalt based superalloys. The company is committed to growth and it backs this commitment with a willingness to invest in continuous improvement through lean manufacturing and rapid prototyping. As a result, it has seen considerable growth in demand for its machining services, which support its investment casting business. This demand has led to a significant investment of over £2 million in Mazak machine tools, infrastructure and manufacturing software to efficiently machine over 14 new products.
Quality assurance is vital for accurate production of patient-specific joints and prostheses, therefore Baltic Orthoservice uses a multi-sensor CMM and laser scanner in conjunction with a micro-CT system. The multi-sensor CMM is used for fast surface and screw hole inspection of the 3D-printed implants. The XT H 225 CT system is used to guarantee internal structure quality and geometrical accuracy between CAD implant model and manufactured implant. The combination of these technologies enables Baltic Orthoservice to achieve the best accuracy and highest quality for a wide variety of medical devices.
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.
