CMM Combines 5-Axis Technology and MobilityMarch 1, 2017
Pressure to increase production and minimize waste for increasingly complex parts is driving manufacturers to look for quality control processes that are faster and more accurate. To help companies meet tolerances and achieve repeatability, AIMS Metrology, an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of coordinate measuring machines, has introduced the Revolution Series HB Shop Floor CMM. Designed and built around Renishaw 5-axis technology, the Revolution HB is a 5-axis CMM.
"Speed is critical for manufacturers today," said AIMS Co-owner Mark Gearding. "Parts are becoming more complex with tighter tolerances and customer lead times are shrinking. Part inspections can sometimes take two to three days using conventional methods. The Revolution HB is able to cut inspection time from days to minutes for many applications such as aerospace components."
Constructed with a polymer-cast base and a roll-around stand with casters that can be locked in place, the Revolution HB is easy to move. The machine runs on standard 110 volt power, so the need for shop air is eliminated. Built-in vibration resistance, mechanical bearings and thermal stability give the Revolution HB the durability it needs. "The CMM features a Renishaw PH20 probe head that provides accuracy and repeatability and performs three times faster than conventional probe heads," said a company spokesperson.
