The Swiftfix modular workholding system works with portable arms CMMs laser scanners and optical and multisensor vision machines
The tripodmounted laser is aligned with an angular interferometer from the machine spindle housing and an integrated angular reflector The true angular position of the axis is calculated through a combination of the rotational position recorded by the XR2039s internal encoder and measurements from the laser and the angular optic mounted on the XR20W Driving the rotary axis to a series of points produces data used to determine a machine39s overall axis accuracy Completed data can be saved for later analysis
IK5000 version 2962 introduces functionality for measuring and graphic evaluation of 3D contours using multisensor and tactile measuring machines
More than 100 machine tools are involved in the production of turbine components at Siemens Energy in Charlotte The plant uses the TDM tool data management system to optimize all the complex instructions and production data mdash from the planning and programming stages including CADCAM simulation right through to presetting and tool preparation at the machining centers
The SFP1 surfacefinish probe makes the REVO fiveaxis CMM head function as a ldquosingle platformrdquo metrology system with a surfacefinish measurement capability of 63005 Ra
