The success of Aberlink’s recently launched Xtreme CNC coordinate measuring machine (CMM) has prompted high levels of demand for practical demonstrations.
To enable potential users who are unable to visit Aberlink’s regional demonstration facilities to witness the cost-effective machine in action, the company has manufactured several quarter-sized, versions. Aberlink sales representatives are now able to carry the portable technology demonstrators in their cars, visit potential customers’ premises and prove the capability and speed of the Xtreme CNC CMM.
The Xtreme is designed with a novel non-Cartesian structure and uses linear motors and mechanical bearings. This advantageous arrangement ensures that the new Aberlink CMM maintains its accuracy at fast measurement rates and does not suffer from the accumulative inaccuracies that occur in conventional 3-axis Cartesian arrangements.
As its name implies, the new Xtreme offers customers a robust solution for undertaking precise inspection routines wherever they are required.
The CMM utilises Aberlink’s 3D CNC software, ensuring greater user productivity and profitability. A welcome bi-product of any Aberlink inspection routine is that a simultaneous picture of the measured component is created on the computer screen. Dimensions between the measured features, mirroring those that appear on the component drawing, can then be simply picked off as required.
In essence this smart software represents an intelligent measuring system that is able to automatically recognise and define the various features being measured. Aberlink 3D is the easiest to use and most intuitive CMM software currently available.
