ZEISS spotlights several new technologies at IMTS
ZEISS Industrial Metrology has announced it will feature several new products at IMTS 2014 that enhance customer productivity, increase accuracy and reduce energy consumption.
The new ZEISS CONTURA coordinate measuring machines with navigator technology for active sensors allow faster scanning of circular features while also increasing accuracy. navigator will automatically calculate the optimal scanning speed based on tolerances, feature size, probe stiffness and probe weight. ZEISS CONTURA aktiv now comes standard with navigator, following suit with ZEISS PRISMO and ZEISS ACCURA which already integrate this technology. The QuickChange option, which accelerates how fast the machine automatically changes sensors, is also available for the ZEISS CONTURA aktiv. ZEISS AirSaver option can also be integrated for more savings as it reduces compressed air consumption by up to 60 percent depending on the application. The proven features of the CONTURA also include its efficient, highly precise air bearings.
The new ZEISS CALYPSO 2014 software contains dozens of new commands that shorten the time it takes to create a measurement program. Some key highlights include touch-enabled functionality allowing faster modification of 3D models and measurements, 100 percent measurement run simulation, and the ability for a user to adapt the interface to their own personal needs.
There will also be new laser line and surface finish sensors, flexible surface and roundness measurement systems, plus temperature and data management tools on display.
The New ZEISS CONTURA
The all-new affordable ZEISS CONTURA CMM offers flexible, reliable and uncompromising quality assurance. The latest generation is even more precise, is available in more sizes, and comes with even more sensor options. Our industry-leading active scanning technology and CALYPSO 2014 software let you measure faster, increasing your throughput. Designed and assembled in the USA, the CONTURA maintains its place as the standard in its class.
ZEISS Industrial Metrology is a leader in CNC coordinate measuring machines and complete solutions for multidimensional metrology in the metrology lab and production. The company is a recognized partner to the automotive industry and its suppliers. 2,400 employees from manufacturing sites in four countries and more than 100 sales and service centers supply customers around the world.
The offering encompasses bridge-type, horizontal-arm and inline measuring machines, as well as form, contour and surface measuring machines. All relevant modules, such as controllers, software, measuring systems and sensors are developed and manufactured in-house. Recent new developments include a system to measure extremely small parts and a computer tomograph for industrial quality assurance. DuraMax, a small CNC measuring machine, allows a particularly cost-effective entry into the ZEISS scanning world.
With its optical and tactile measuring systems, ZEISS has added image processing to the application spectrum of coordinate measuring technology. Synergies have been used to create optical sensors and optimized software. The image processing software is integrated into CALYPSO CAD-based measuring software, enabling a measuring system to perform both optical and tactile measurements.
The extensive CALYPSO software library enables users of ZEISS measuring technology to perform almost any measuring task. The efficient Navigator technology is of particular importance for maximum accuracies and simultaneously high measuring speeds. The offering is rounded off with extensive customer services, contract measurements, part inspection using computer tomography and online services to ensure optimum machine uptimes.
