Coordinate measuring can be carried out quicker with the latest development from Carl Zeiss (Maple Grove, MN). Its Contura G2 coordinate measuring machine (CMM) line now comes with dynamic navigator technology that delivers a considerable improvement to scanning speed without sacrificing measuring accuracy.

Faster CMM scanning need not compromise accuracy


Higher productivity than traditional scanning is achieved through very short calibration times; very fast determination of size, form, and position; and precise measurements even with complex stylus systems. Additional benefits include the self-centering probing function, mechanical collision protection, and automatic counterbalancing every time the stylus is changed. Styli with a length of up to 500 mm and weight of up to 500g can be used.

The Contura G2 navigator is available with measuring ranges of X=700, Y=700, and Z=600 mm and X=700, Y=1000, and Z=600 mm. It also achieves a length measuring error threshold of MPEE=1.5 + L/333 as an HTG measuring machine (high temperature gradient) for the expanded temperature range of 18-26°C. Equipped with additional temperature sensors, the measuring machine can also be operated with minimal climatization.—[email protected]
