The new Flexible Intelligent GAuge (FIGA) is a one-piece symmetrical design using CNC machine tool technology.
The new FIGAShop-Floor CMM from COORD3 has been developed for the production shop and will perform most demanding production gauging applications.
With a minimum footprint FIGA offers a generous measuring volume of 600mm x 560mm x 500 mm. The horizontal bearing ways are completely enclosed and fully protected with no exposed cabling. High-resolution glass measuring scales provide a thermal inert measuring accuracy. Open access to the measurement volume provides for ergonomic operator loading or applied automation.
Elliott Mills, CMM Product and Sales Director says, “FIGA represents a return to the origins of the COORD3 manufactured cantilever style CMMs using mechanical bearings. Today’s fusion of proven design philosophy, with 40 years of CMM metrology experience and the latest technology, result in the FIGA’s unparalleled measurement solution for the global manufacturing community.”
FIGA can be supplied with any of the full range of Renishaw® Touch Trigger or Scanning Probes. An integral probe or styli change rack is rigidly mounted to the rear of the machine structure so it does not erode the available measuring volume.
Standard with the FIGA CMM is TouchDMIS™ measuring software, the new benchmark

for ease-of-use. The one-touch “Program Launch” in TouchDMIS allows the machine to be operated by shop operators and part programs can be programmed for CAD either on or off line. The software allows fully-customizable inspection reports can be set up to provide only the information needed to monitor both individual part quality and process capability.
Relocating FIGA to a new point-of-inspection on the shop floor is easily handled by a standard pallet-truck. Integral anti-vibration leveling feet allows for rapid set-up at the new gauging station without the need for compressed air and offering a unique ‘plug-and-measure’ solution.
