Hexagon Metrology's new generation 7.10.7 SF coordinate measuring machine includes an integrated and flexible part fixture system.
The new feature means users can locate up to four 300 x 300mm fixture plates or one 500mm fixture plate on the table. Thanks to a unique kinematic locating system, plates can be rapidly loaded and unloaded for quick changeover of individual parts or part types.
Other new enhancements include integrated LED workspace lighting, which fully illuminates the measurement volume, overcoming issues that a poorly lit measurement volume hampers productivity. In addition, an integrated message lighting display has been added so users can see the status of the inspection operation from a distance.
The CMM has a measuring stroke of 710 x 1010 x 680mm and uses standard 110/220v single phase outlets with no need for an air supply. The machine's computer, controller and interface boxes are housed in a portable, self-contained unit.
