June 3, 2016. AIMS Metrology will feature coordinate measuring machines engineered to raise throughput and reduce operation costs while maintaining submicron accuracy at IMTS 2016, Booth # E-5836. The OEM manufactures, assembles and ships its machines from its recently expanded Dayton, Ohio facility and provides comprehensive service support. AIMS will demonstrate its Revolution LM series which employs linear motors with a Renishaw REVO 5-axis scanning system. AIMS also recently introduced its Revolution Series HB Shop Floor CMMs. Designed and built around Renishaw 5-axis technology, the Revolution HB is the only mobile 5-axis CMM on the market. Both models are especially suited to the needs of the automotive, aerospace and medical markets.
