Focusing on the details

We have state of the art technology and expertise to fully inspect anything from single components to assemblies up to 2000 x 1200 x 1000mm.

Our technology is based on two systems: a Crysta Apex S544, with a repeatability of 1.7 microns, and a larger Crysta Apex C122010, operable within 2.3 microns.

Both are the best inspection systems currently available - high-speed, moving bridge co-ordinate measuring machines on a granite base, which also provides the Y-Axis guide way. A self-adjusting air bearing on each axis gives excellent stability during high-speed movement and measurement.

The moving bridge is constructed of low mass alloy. The X beam and Z spindle surfaces are oxide coated to form an extremely hard surface, which gives added stability and wear resistance.

Additional features include:
  • Integral Mitutoyo SRD Linear Encoders.
  • CNC operation via Machine Control Unit Model CMMCJ. This provides full digital servo control for high speed, high accuracy positioning with 3-axis vector drive and automatic computation of all acceleration and deceleration.
  • Circular Path motion for continuous movement between relative positions.
  • A Windows compatible and programmable scanning and profile analysis module. This allows easy transfer of data to and from CAD systems.

FUNCTIONALITY IS EXPANDED BY:

A CAT1000P geometric CAD programming module. This utilises CAD data to simplify Geopak part program creation.

Geometric elements can be selected for automatic measurement and comparison to their nominal values. Potential probe collisions are automatically detected, providing an error-free program. Standard STEP CAD can be used, and formats such as IGES, VDA-FS, CATIA, Parasolid, Solidworks and PRO/E.

A CAT1000S CAD surface analysis program.

This compares 3D measured surface data to an imported CAD surface model. Measured points are graphically displayed, magnified, colour coded and superimposed on the CAD model. By zooming, panning and scrolling, the graphic screen output can show the deviation of each point within selected tolerances.
