Coordinate Measuring Machines

CMMs - Small & Medium

Using the mini and medium class coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Metrology you can measure small and medium-size parts three-dimensionally without having to sacrifice performance and accuracy. Quickly create part programs directly from CAD models.

Profit from increased quality and process improvement with the aid of these stationary coordinate measuring machines. CMMs in this class are appropriate for measuring tasks in nearly every industry where accuracy, repeatable results and automated measuring of dimensions is required.

Whether you are looking for an entry-level model or already have experience with coordinate measurement systems and are now looking to improve quality assurance or increase inspection capacity - we have the products and expertise you require.

CMMs - Large

The largest stationary gantry- and bridge-type 3D coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Metrology will give you gargantuan performance. It is not just the capacity of these giants of the world of coordinate measuring systems that leaves all others in the shade: they also impress with robust materials, a stable structure and high accuracy - on the production floor, in a production cell or in the measuring room. The CMMs can act as a standalone system or as a station in a production cell.

The strengths are particularly apparent when they are used for three-dimensional measurements for large components and assemblies in the aerospace industry, defense, ship building and in the power generation industry. If you want to measure a large item with high performance, you will be making the right choice with these coordinate measuring machines.

CMMs - Horizontal Arm

The advantages of the horizontal arm coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Metrology are particularly apparent when inspecting sheet metal parts in the car industry, or other large-volume components in the aerospace, ship, defense, appliance, machinery and railway industries. Their open structure permits direct access to the workpiece and therefore significantly eases loading and unloading. Horizontal CMMs can also be integrated as a component of an automated production line such as automotive body-in-white.

A large number of applications are covered with different designs and varying price-performance classes.

CMMs - Shop Floor

Shop floor conditions may suggest that accurate measurement results on the factory floor would be impossible to obtain. However, using specialized shop floor hardened coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Metrology, measurement accuracy is ensured even in the production environment. Ideal for lean manufacturing and cellular layouts, automated inspection is possible right at the point of production. Specialized software interfaces allow even unskilled operators to inspect parts with point-and-click ease.

Products in this class maintain high accuracy over large temperature ranges. Thanks to special shop floor features and automatic temperature compensation, performance is not degraded by harsh environmental conditions in production, such as vibration and dirt.

Laser Tracker Systems

A long-term standard in industrial metrology: Laser Tracker Systems lead the field in terms of the accuracy, reliability and durability of portable coordinate measuring machines. A laser tracker from Hexagon Metrology is a portable measurement system that relies on a laser beam to accurately measure and inspect in a spherical volume of up to 160 m [525 ft].
Expansion or automation of the system with hand-guided scanners, wireless probes or robot applications open up an enormous number of possible applications. The effect: rapid and highly accurate measurements fed directly into production leading to cost savings and quality improvements.

Measure where no other CMM can go
The Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 is a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) that allows extreme precision over ultra large distances. It is powered by its own internal battery and is able to work in the most demanding environment, yet maintains the highest level of precision and the largest ever work envelope.

Changing laser trackers forever
The Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 from Leica Geosystems is a portable measurement system that relies on a laser beam to accurately measure and inspect in a spherical volume of up to 160 m [525 ft]. The Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 can gather 3D coordinates in 3 ways: by following a small mirrored sphere, also known as a reflector; by tracking a Leica T-Probe, a hand-held “walk-around” wireless contact probe; or by tracking a Leica T-Scan, a contactless high-speed laser scanner. Which measurement method you should use will depend on your application.

Laser Scanners

Laser scanners play a key role in quality assurance. 3D digital capture of shapes and surfaces using lasers is an effortless and precise process. The industry uses laser scanners primarily for the quality control of geometries and surface, but also for reverse engineering, fit and finish, and assembly applications.

A 3D scanner can be quickly and easily attached like a probe to a measuring arm or can work to the highest accuracy as a part of a Laser Tracker System or fixed coordinate measuring machine. Software generates 3D data in real time from the scanner-created point cloud and recognizes deviations from the CAD data immediately.

Non-contact scanners accurately capture millions of points within seconds. The resulting point cloud can then be used to create a CAD model to reproduce, redesign, inspect or archive the part.

Freedom of movement
ROMER Absolute Arm with integrated scanner - 3D digitizing, 3D modelling, point cloud inspection, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping or copy milling: this system is an all-purpose metrology tool for a multitude of applications

Leica T-Scan TS50-A high-speed hand scanner
Leica T-Scan TS50 is a high-speed hand scanner for large-volume portable applications. This third-generation Leica T-Scan is more accurate, provides a better performance on challenging material types and offers double the point acquisition rate compared to the previous generation.

Portable Measuring Arms

Portable measuring arms allow you to take measurements directly in the manufacturing environment, where process improvements are the most beneficial. No long installation times, simplicity of operation and ever-reliable 3D measurements: articulated arms which can be equipped with different length probes and scan heads to measure even difficult-to-access points either optically or by touch.

The attractive price-performance of these portable coordinate measuring machines when compared with CAD data or reverse engineering techniques means they are finding use in a wide range of industries.

ROMER Absolute Arm
