Aberlink Xtreme Non-Cartesian Shop-Floor CMM Launched

Precision measurements in even the most extreme manufacturing environments – CMM accuracy wherever you need it.

Designed using a non-Cartesian structure and utilising linear motors and mechanical bearings, as its name implies, the Xtreme CNC CMM provides a robust solution for providing precision inspection results. The unique CMM’s advantageous configuration ensures that it maintains its accuracy at very fast measurement rates and does not suffer from the accumulative inaccuracies that occur in conventional 3-axis Cartesian designs.

The Xtreme is a self-contained inspection unit. It has no air bearings, so no requirement for compressed air – just plug it in and go. Built-in temperature control and a compact footprint allow the Xtreme to be placed wherever it is needed.

The innovative Xtreme CMM is an evolution of CMM technology. However, it is the price that the Xtreme CMM will be sold for that is perhaps the primary reason why the new Xtreme will have such a significant effect on the market, with the potential for multiple units replacing a single inspection room CMM, ensuring that measurement is provided close to where it is required.

Key Features

  • No compressed air required – the Xtreme is ‘plug and go’
  • The Xtreme’s mechanical bearings mean that it is robust, so ideal for less than perfect environments
  • Built-in temperature control – accuracy is maintained even when ambient temperature is not controlled
  • Aberlink’s revolutionary easy to use measurement software
