A CNC system that combines high accuracy with automatic CNC measurements to greatly improve productivity and efficiency. Automatic orientation control for the detector unit enables this system to automatically execute high-speed, operator-less measurements. Available with the standard column specification (Z-axis traverse of 350mm) or an extended specification (Z-axis traverse of 550mm) for handling taller workpieces.
For a measurement system to be able to achieve high accuracy, the base, which forms the foundation of the system, must be completely rigid. Therefore, we utilized FEM structural analysis simulation to thoroughly analyze the base and its application. The result is the development of a high-rigidity base.
Attaining the ultimate level of improvement in the manufacturing accuracy of the column guide surface, which is critical for achieving perfect straightness, and adopting Mitutoyo’s proprietary system and mechanisms have led to the achievement of the ultra-high column straightness of 0.05μm/100mm (in narrow range)
The system is supplied as standard with the Automatic Adjustment Table (A.A.T.) positioning and leveling function, freeing the operator from the task of centering and leveling the workpiece. High- precision glass encoders are used to reduce positioning errors and achieve high-speed automatic centering/leveling, which contributes greatly to reducing the total measurement time from workpiece setting to workpiece measurement.
