Coordinate Measuring Machine Operates Without Compressed Air
Mitutoyo America Corporation announces the release of the MiSTAR 555 CNC shop floor coordinate measuring machine to its CMM product line that operates without compressed air.
Mitutoyo America Corporation announces the release of the MiSTAR 555 CNC shop floor coordinate measuring machine to its CMM product line that operates without compressed air and on conventional 120V 20 amp electrical service. The CMM is a compact, space-saving in-line or near-line CNC coordinate measuring machine designed for high-speed, high-accuracy measurements with accuracy assurance from 10°C to 40°C. It features an open-structure design with a single support moving bridge enabling users to mount workpieces from the front, rear and right for installation and a walk-up inspection station for easier operability. The modular control unit and PC are stored in the base of the main body structure, reducing the installation area to approximately 70% from a conventional moving bridge model for location flexibility. The CMM also uses a scale detection system with a high resistance to airborne contaminants, eliminating the need for costly environmental controlled enclosures.
The CMM features several Industry 4.0 integrations, including the company’s smart measuring system, which enables monitoring the operation state required by smart factories and a status monitor that retrieves current CMM status features using the MTConnect protocol. Condition monitor provides a system that collects and evaluates different operational information such as measuring, movement lengths, machine error, probe functions and more for long-term preventative maintenance and machine use statistics.
Schools for mold polishing do not exist and most veteran polishers don't want to teach the subject, so here are a few simple polishing guidelines.
