Coord3 Introduces Benchmark CMM
December 6, 2013—The new Benchmark CMM from Coord3 offers a high performance budget CMM with the added benefit of a small footprint. The unique ‘half-gantry’ advanced alloy design has its X and Y axis at the same level, providing increased rigidity and offers a metrology platform for high accuracy small and medium part CMM inspection.
The open structure Benchmark provides suitable ergonomics for the inspection of high volume production parts or single part inspection in the smaller manufacturing operations. Its compact size is suitable for production CMM or quality room applications and fits through a standard door width. The full air-bearing Benchmark CMM, with accuracy of 2.5 microns and a measuring volume of 500mm x 400mm x 440mm comes standard with a Renishaw touch-probe.
Benchmark is available in manual or CNC configurations. Manual units can be upgraded to full CNC in the field at a later date, offering a two-phase investment in CMM technology. The CMM can be used in job shops and can also be used as a programmable production gage. In addition, optional wireless thermal compensation allows the Benchmark to measure accurately in shop conditions.
This Benchmark CMM is equipped with TouchDMIS software for CMM usability, offering the world’s first all TOUCH CMM software with full CAD capability. TouchDMIS requires just a few hours of training and an incredibility short learning curve. TouchDMIS takes the ‘expert’ out of CMM measuring and programming.
