The world’s fastest CNC vertical axis, in-line coordinate measuring machine with world-beating acceleration (8,660mm/s2 ), measuring speed (at the moment of contact: 20mm/s) as well as drive speed. This system contributes to the reduction in total cost as an auto- measurement system, either in a line or at line side where a reduction in measurement time is required, and can also serve as a dedicated machine or a substitute system for gauges.
In consideration of installation between processing machines, the width of this machine has been reduced by 15% compared with its predecessor, thus contributing to a reduction in line length. Open access to the measuring area from the front/back and left/right has increased flexibility in the routing arrangements for a workpiece.
Real-time thermal compensation applied to measurements and origin- setting assure excellent accuracy (referred to 20°C) over a much wider range of ambient temperature than conventional CMMs. The graph below shows the effectiveness of the scheme in maintaining accuracy over a range of more than 30°C.
This series has improved dust resistance relative to its predecessor by installing all drive system and scale units in the dust-tight enclosure on the machine top. The control unit and PC are installed in the dust-tight rack.
The ease-of-maintenance construction and air-free operation means less chance of maintenance problems occurring.
Generally, during production, the temperature of a workpiece differs from that of the measuring machine due to processing and washing and is always changing. To support in-line operations, the machine must continue accurate measurement (referred to 20°C) even while the size of a workpiece is changing due to this temperature difference. The following graph shows the high degree of compensation resulting when a MACH-V series machine (at 20°C) measured a certain workpiece while it cooled from 40°C towards 20°C.
