The new Legex 574 Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) from Mitutoyo America Corporation provides ultra-high accuracy (MPEe = [0.35+L/1000] mm), large measuring range (X:510mm, Y:710mm, Z:455mm), high traverse speed (200mm/sec.) and a 200kgf worktable loading capacity.
The Legex 574 is driven by MCOSMOS (Mitutoyo Controlled Open System for Modular Operation Support) software with modules supporting virtually every CAD format while providing routines for in-line measurement, data feedback and process management.
According to Mitutoyo, construction of the Legex 574 incorporates the latest technologies. For example, spheroidal graphite ductile cast iron is used for the chassis which, together with air-damped spring isolators, effectively attenuate vibration. Finite Element Modeling (FEM) analysis is used to ensure outstanding geometric accuracy by minimizing the deformations caused by normal machine operations. Also, thermally-stable components and real-time temperature compensation maintain extremely high accuracy under a wide range of operating temperatures (64.4° to 71.6°F / 18°C to 22°C).
