DAYTON, Ohio—(September 4, 2019) AIMS Metrology, an OEM for 5-axis coordinate measuring machines, will hold a Metrology Forum at its Dayton, Ohio production facility October 2-3, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Manufacturers are invited to attend the event which will feature guest speakers from Honda and Renishaw. Visitors will also get the chance to see firsthand the unique technology behind AIMS’ Revolution Series 5-axis LM and HB CMMs.

“We are encouraging manufacturers to bring a part for inspection evaluation,” says Mark Gearding, vice-president of AIMS. “This type of analysis helps us to determine whether or not the company needs a lab-grade or mobile 5-axis CMM. It also helps us to evaluate what type of probe head the part needs and what goals the company has in terms of tolerances, throughput and automation.”

Dan Sokolow, engineering coordinator for Honda Transmissions Manufacturing, will address visitors Oct. 2. He’ll talk about the cost analysis and ROI behind replacing custom gauging with the HB, the industry’s only mobile 5-axis CMM, and its potential for automation. On Oct. 3 Renishaw’s Chief Industrial Metrologist Ken Bergler will focus his discussion on REVO 2 5-axis scanning and demonstrate SFP2’s 6-axis capabilities along with other advances in probe heads.

Demonstrations will feature AIMS’ laboratory grade LM CMM with a Renishaw 5-axis REVO 2 head and the mobile HB CMM built and designed with Renishaw’s PH20 5-axis touch trigger system. Personalized tours will be available upon request.

AIMS was founded in 2009 to equip the industry with the tools to perform accurate, flexible three-dimensional inspection for in-process and post process parts.  In 2015 the Dayton, Ohio- based OEM launched its line of Revolution LM and HB series coordinate measuring machines designed and engineered to introduce and bring Renishaw 5-axis measurement technology to the shop floor and the laboratory. AIMS’ Revolution line of CMMs are exclusively supported by Renishaw technology through probe heads, touch probes, scanning probes, incremental encoder scale systems, change racks, styli, controls, and Modus software. Faster measuring speeds, enhanced accuracy, higher throughput and lower cost of ownership make the Revolution series products especially suited for the quality control process demands of efficiency-driven manufacturers and the growing number of smart factories and automated operations. In addition to matching customer requirements with the right turnkey CMM system, AIMS provides installation, service/support and training. Machine retrofits and refurbished equipment are also available.
