Based on advanced head, sensor, controller and new Verisurf software techniques 5-axis CMM technology delivers unprecedented measuring speed and flexibility, while avoiding the speed versus accuracy compromises inherent to conventional techniques.
5-axis motion enables the stylus to follow a continuous path around complex components without having to leave the surface to change stylus cluster or index the head. Controller algorithms that synchronize CMM and head motion produce an optimal tip path and minimize CMM dynamic errors.
There are extensive productivity gains from 5-axis as it greatly reduces the number of setups and special fixturing, as well as fewer special probes and probe-changes that are typical with 3-axis probing.
