Coordinate Measuring Machine
Carl Zeiss offers its SPECTRUM coordinate measuring machine. This bridge-type CMM meets the market’s demand for an economical, entry-level CMM with Carl Zeiss machine, sensor and software technology.
Designed for general measurement, the SPECTRUM can be configured to meet your specific needs. With the Carl Zeiss RDS-C5 articulating probe holder and our XDT multi-point sensor or Renishaw TP20 touch-trigger, this CMM can measure angled features in difficult to reach locations. The articulating probe holder offers +/- 180 degrees of bi-directional rotation and permits indexing steps of 5 degrees reaching 5,184 angular positions for either sensor. SPECTRUM can also be configured with the XDT directly for general prismatic applications.
SPECTRUM models offer x, y, z measuring ranges from 700 x 700 x 600 mm to
700 x 1000 x 600 mm. Hard-coat aluminum guideway elements offer a variety of benefits including corrosion resistance, hardness and wear resistance, electrical resistance, temperature resistance and a low friction coefficient. The machine's accuracy of up to MPEe 2.1 + L/250 is guaranteed over a temperature range from 18 to 22°C (64-71°F).
This system is equipped with a C99L Controller reducing the need for additional floor space. It provides smooth, accurate, high-speed 3-axis CNC movement for all measuring tasks and the dual-joystick panel makes motorized control easy. The ZEISS wrap-around air bearings in all guideways provide rigidity and stability at maximum speeds and accelerations.
SPECTRUM is available with user-friendly CALYPSO metrology software. CALYPSO is a revolutionary CAD-based software with Visual Metrology. There is no time-consuming, structural programming or difficult code and text editing.
From a hot rod hobby, medical molds and shop performance to technology extremes, key relationships and a growth strategy, it’s obvious details matter at Eden Tool.
The pressure on the supply chain is unrelenting for all things faster, better and cheaper. For moldmakers, getting molds built right the first time is critical to meeting these increasing demands. But how?
A review of the benefits of automating CNC machining by measuring and automatically changing the cutting tools as they wear during the machining process, and what a moldmaker should consider before investing in such a technology.
