Hexagon Metrology’s Brown & Sharpe 4.5.4 SF is the company’s latest generation of shop floor coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) designed to excel in harsh manufacturing environments.
With a focus on portability, the new CMM has a footprint of 52.2 by 32.8 by 79.5 in. Its computer, controller, and interface boxes are integrated into one unit with locking wheels, and the system uses standard 110/220-V outlets with no need for shop air.
Thermal isolation and temperature compensation elements help to ensure accuracy in changing shop floor environments, and standard elastomeric dampers isolate the measuring platform from most vibrations.
Inverted, high-resolution Heidenhain scales, covered ways, and internal cable management protect machine components from ambient dust and debris while minimizing friction. Hardened linear drives and recirculating bearings contribute to the CMM’s overall durability, the company states. For extreme environments, an optional active vibration dampening system is available.
This CMM comes standard with PC-DMIS software.
