IMTS Preview: Wenzel
The all new LH Generation will be the highlight of the Wenzel Booth at IMTS 2012 (Booth E-5261) and the company will be presenting their new generation of CMMs. Wenzel has expanded the successful LH series with robust features and a new innovative design. With the new generation of air-bearing CMMs, Wenzel continues to improve precision, efficiency and longevity. The new LH Series models LH 65, LH 87 and LH 108 are extremely functional, effective, flexible, reliable and easy to operate.
Wenzel will also be showing their dedicated gear tester range, WGT, representing the ultimate in gear testing performance from Wenzel GearTec. All axes are made from natural South African Impala granite, guaranteeing excellent thermal behavior. Air bearings on all linear axes ensure smooth running and high accuracy performance with no mechanical wear over the life of the machine. WGT models feature fully counterbalanced tailstock, as standard, to support longer gears, tools and shafts with parts easily loaded due to its ergonomic design.
In the same booth, Wenzel will demonstrate the highly compact desktop CT exaCT XS. The exaCT XS is a suitable solution for the volume measurement of plastic parts and components with low density. Thanks to its optimized dimensions and low weight, it can be placed on desktops or portable trolleys easily. The device is controlled by a modern touch-screen monitor. The innovative and user-friendly operating concept allows the user to setup a measurement within a few minutes. All components of the exaCT XS are integrated in one unit. This ensures a very small footprint.
The final machine Wenzel will be showing is the XO5.7.5 equipped with a PH20 Renishaw probe. The Wenzel XO is a cost effective derivative of the world renowned Wenzel LH series of intrinsically accurate CMMs. XO utilizes the industry standard Renishaw TP20 and TP200 probing systems. Wenzel XO is also available with the new high speed PH20 head, the probing system that will be on display in the Wenzel Booth.
