CMM technology on show at Austech

WITH a broad range of the latest metrology equipment on display, Hi Tech Metrology will be able to demonstrate an extensive array of dimensional measuring solutions to visitors at Austech 2009.

The solutions presented include the latest developments in coordinate meas urement (CMM) technology, with key industry brands such as Brown & Sharpe, and Sheffield, both running what is now becoming the global-stan dard metrology software platform – PC- DMIS.

Being shown for the first time in Australia will be the new Discovery series III from Sheffield Measurement.

Sheffield’s original Cordax Discovery CMM created the concept of affordable automatic dimensional inspection at the point of manufacture on the shop floor and this next generation Discovery III now offers higher accuracy, improved thermal performance, a new industrial design and expanded control options.

Available in three measuring ranges from 500x600x400mm – 760x1000x600mm, this new CMM is sized to suit the majority of manufactured parts.

As well as an extensive display fixed metrology technology on the company’s two stands – Stand B25 and C25 – there will be an impressive display of portable measuring equipment from Faro, and the latest non-contact vision measuring system from MicroVu, the Vertex 420.
