Benchtop Optical CMM Upgradeable to Multi-Sensor Launched

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence has announced the launch of its Optiv Performance 322 coordinate measuring machine (CMM) at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2018, The Optiv Performance 322 is a customizable benchtop CMM with upgradability which caters to a variety of applications.

Weighing under 400 lbs, the fixed bridge and moving table-type machine is light enough to be placed directly on existing workbenches and relocated without recalibration by a Hexagon engineer. In addition, the machine allows for high speed (300 mm/s) and acceleration (500 mm/s/s) due to the stiffness of its granite construction. The CMM features temperature compensation technology that calculates a correction value for measurement deviations to ensure users get stable results. The Optiv Performance 322 is designed for the inspection of sheet metal stampings, injection-molded plastic parts, profile scanning, and more applications.

Equipped with PC-DMIS software, the benchtop CMM is designed for flexibility and can measure a range of different parts. The CMM is available in an entry-level vision-only configuration. However, the future-ready machine’s 3D accuracy specification and pre-cabling enables in-field upgrades to a complete 3D multi-sensor solution supporting a range of contact and non-contact sensors, reducing customer requirements for multiple products in the inspection area. The system is built on a modular concept, so the sensors, controllers, PC and measuring software can be customized and scaled to changing requirements.
