It was all "Hands Off" at our Tech Lunch Event Featuring the latest in Non-Contact Scanning Equipment
On October 10th, CMMXYZ opened its doors to welcome roughly 50 industry professionals representing 24 companies from across Southern Ontario. Our latest open house focused on “hands off” non-contact measurement equipment. On display in our showroom that day were 3 very different systems:
- Leica AT960 SR Scanning Tracker
- The brand new 85 Series Hexagon Absolute 7-Axis Scanning Arm
- AICON Smart Scan: a white light, optical scanning system
One of the many benefits of attending this type of event is that you can quickly evaluate what equipment works best for your application. Several attendees brought their manufactured parts with them which we quickly set up and scanned on a few different systems. This allowed our visitors to compare each system in terms of ease-of-use, accuracy and set up time.
One of the most popular items on display was the newly re-designed 85 Series Hexagon Absolute Arm. The new design allows the laser scanner and pistol grip to be completely removed facilitating easy probing in tight spaces. The wrist now features a display screen that allows for measurement result oversight. These new features allow for improved usability and versatility without compromising on speed or accuracy.
Our goal at this event was to educate Quality professionals in alternative means of measurement. Most who work in the precision measurement field these days are familiar with the standard CMM type of inspection, but with the Ontario manufacturing sector becoming increasingly more diverse and reporting standards more stringent, companies are looking for solutions that utilize cutting-edge technology tailored to their specific needs ranging from quick & easy colour mapping to high-end white light scanning.
At CMMXYZ we are proud to be North America’s leading independent CMM measurement services provider. Remember, if you can make it, we can measure it!
