Noncontact CMM

November 26, 2007


The Maxos CMM solution includes a noncontact light probe, a bridge or horizontal gantry, a turntable option, installation, custom programming, training and maintenance. The system is designed for automated high-speed production inspection. It can inspect polished and unpolished metal, plastics and glass. Applications include the inspection of turbine blades, pump components, medical components and other high-precision components. The system collects individual points at a rate of 100 per second. By measuring with a single point of light, the system eliminates the inaccuracies inherent in contact measurement on very small radii or extremely sharp edges.
