Linearity is a term used to describe mathematical relationships, but it also refers to a type of high-performance motor. Basically, the technology uses linear motion to move a payload at a specified acceleration, speed, travel distance and accuracy. You’ll see linear motors used in gimbals, rotary tables, 6-axis robot arms and coordinate measuring machines like AIMS’ 5-axis LM and its new Summit 10.10.10.
Although our clients recognize the need for precise metrology solutions, buyers are not always familiar with coordinate measurement machines and their specific capabilities. Here, we provide answers to our most frequently asked questions regarding CMM technology and how it can benefit your manufacturing process.
A retrofit will extend the service life and improve the performance of an older coordinate measurement machine (CMM) for a fraction of the cost of buying a new machine. More than just a software update, a CMM retrofit may involve replacing the controller, providing any relevant software upgrades, replacing measuring scales, rewiring, and more.
You'll start to see a surge in consumers purchasing electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrids in the near future. So how does this impact us in the industrial manufacturing space? Well, the EV and hybrid market space will need our coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and applications to meet demand for quality automobiles. Read below for more insights on CMMs in the electric vehicle and hybrid market space.

Linear Motor CMM
While most electric motors have round stators and rotors to produce rotational force known as torque, linear motors are longer and have straight stators and rotors to create linear force. Low- and high-acceleration models operate slowly over long distances or quickly over short distances, respectively.
