Until recently, conventional 3-axis CMMs proved largely sufficient. A probe attached to a third moving axis measured a part’s physical characteristics. But slower cycle times, limited flexibility [5 to 7 1/2 degrees of polarity] and lack of mobility have proved problematic in an Industry 4.0 environment.
DAYTON, Ohio—(March 5, 2018) With lead times shrinking and the demand for parts with multiple features and tighter tolerances growing, fabricators have little time to spare for new equipment demonstrations. Yet the need to find the right quality inspection equipment is higher than ever. That’s why ABLE Machine Tool Sales Inc., the New England distributor for Dayton, Ohio-based AIMS Metrology’s Revolution Series coordinate measuring machines (CMM), is bringing the technology to its customers’ doorsteps.
