PERCEPTRON LAUNCHESCOORD3 UNIVERSAL 5-AXISCMM

Five-axis Renishaw REVO-2 scanning probe permits reduction in CMM inspection and probe calibration times and speeds up QC feedback.

Perceptron, Inc. has launched a full range of 5-axis CMMs complete with the revolutionary Renishaw® REVO-2 scanning probe and a fully-integrated UCC CMM controller and MODUS® metrology software.

Elliott Mills, Perceptron’s CMM ProductSales Director says, “By combining the metrology stability of the COORD3 Universal CMM with the latest Renishaw REVO-2 5-axis measuring system, CMM dynamic error is minimized for high-speed probe motion since all part feature scanning motion is within the REVO-2 head. The REVO-2 is the only scanning system for CMMs that simultaneously controls the motion of three CMM and two probe head axes, while collecting workpiece data using its range of 3D tactile probes, surface roughness measurement probe and non-contact vision probe. It uses laser measurement for precise workpiece measurement at extremely high rates of data capture. Scanning rates of 500mm/sec can now be achieved that are 20 times faster than traditional 3-axis scanning CMMs.

The Universal CMMs utilize a high-technology alloy moving frame design that provides the benchmark for dynamics and measuring accuracy performance. This design overcomes the issues associated with operating traditional build CMM structures, in the typical, less than

perfect, CMM operating environments. A CMM thermal compensation system of both

machine and part, allows the measuring system to automatically and dynamically compensate for changes in the CMM operating environment. This system allows the CMM to perform with

stated measuring accuracy between 16 and 26-degrees C. Gold-plated 0.1µm measuring scales are free-floating in support tracks, eliminating any CMM structural changes from influencing its measuring accuracy.

Universal CMMs have a very efficient design in terms of machine simplicity which improves long-term reliability and ultimately cost of CMM ownership. The COORD3 Universal CMMs have an isostatic design for each axis that provides optimum machine geometrical alignment in the construction of the machine, which ultimately benefits the ability to make accurate field calibrations. Universal has a monolithic base-plate, with integral inverted dovetail guide-way, and a generous 90mm (3.5 in.) x 90 mm (3.5 in.) Z Ram section providing outstanding metrological performances. Direct axis drives, using toothed drive belts, provide the vibration-free motion with zero hysteresis.

Universal CMMs can also be equipped with an optional SZP (Safety Zone Protection System) which uses laser scanners to monitor the defined protection zone when the CMM is in high speed automatic measuring mode. SZP reduces the CMM speed upon infringement of the safety zone by an operator and automatically returns the CMM to its full measuring speed, only after the zone infringement has been cleared. The SZP system allows safe use of the CMM in a production, shop-floor and fully-automated applications.

The COORD3Universal CMM range accommodates part sizes up to 3000mm x 1500mm x 1200mm. COORD3 has already supplied 5-axis CMM’s several North American aerospace manufacturing companies.
