The unique CMM’s configuration ensures that it maintains accuracy, at very fast measurement rates and does not suffer from the accumulative inaccuracies that occur in conventional 3-axis Cartesian CMM designs.
The Xtreme CMM offers a self-contained inspection unit with no air bearings and with the PC monitor conveniently mounted atop the CMM enclosure . Built-in temperature control and a compact footprint allow the Xtreme to be placed wherever inspection is needed including adjacent to CNC production machinery.
Another unique advantage of the Xtreme is that all of the motion struts are temperature controlled ensuring measuring accuracy is maintained even when the environment is not temperature controlled.
The Xtreme CMM is offered at a price point close to traditional manual CMMs with avolumetric accuracy of 3µm + L/250mm. The cost effective Xtreme solution allows use at various locations on the manufacturing floor forming part of a decentralization coordinate metrology strategy inline with the trend away from the centralized quality lab CMM.
The Xtreme CMM comes with Aberlink’s own measuring software renowned for its simplicity and ease of use. Inspection reports can be in the form of fully dimensioned graphical representations created directly on screen.
The success of Aberlink’s Xtreme CMM since launch has justified the company’s contention that industry needed a cost-effective robust CMM that could provide accurate measurements at point of manufacture and allows parts to be inspected within machine-tool cycle times.
