The success of Aberlink’s recently launched Xtreme CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine has prompted high levels of demand for practical demonstrations. To enable potential users who are unable to visit an Aberlink demonstration facility to witness the cost-effective CMM in action, the company has manufactured a quarter-sized version. Aberlink Sales Representatives are now able to carry the smaller portable version of the Xtreme CMM in their cars, visit potential customers’ premises and prove on-site the outstanding capability and speed of the Xtreme CNC CMM.
The Xtreme is designed with a novel non-Cartesian structure and uses linear motors and mechanical bearings. This advantageous arrangement ensures that the new Aberlink CNC CMM maintains its impressive accuracy at very fast measurement rates and does not suffer from the accumulative inaccuracies that occur in conventional 3-axis Cartesian CMM arrangements. As its name implies, the new Xtreme CNC CMM offers customers a robust solution for undertaking precise inspection routines wherever they are required.
The Xtreme utilises Aberlink’s renowned 3D CNC software, ensuring greater user productivity and profitability. A welcome bi-product of any Aberlink CMM inspection routine is that a simultaneous picture of the measured component is created on the computer screen. Dimensions between the measured features, mirroring those that appear on the component drawing, can then be simply picked off as required. In essence this ‘smart’ software represents an intelligent measuring system that is able to automatically recognise and define the various features being measured. Aberlink 3D is claimed to be the easiest to use and most intuitive CMM software currently available.
