With DuraMax, Carl Zeiss offers a compact 3-D coordinate measuring machine. DuraMax Gear marks the evolution of DuraMax into a shop floor gear wheel measuring machine. "This enables us to fulfill the requests of many customers and introduce gear wheel measuring technology with small machines that can be used as close to production as possible," says Alexander Dollansky, product manager at Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology. The key features of DuraMax Gear are its suitability for a rough production environment, the high permissible temperature fluctuations, the proven and pioneering Zeiss measuring software, its small footprint and the attractive price. DuraMax, as a gear wheel measuring machine, is suited for process control on the production floor, for quick in-between inspections of small workpieces and for testing volume parts directly in production. Because of its accuracy, DuraMax is also suitable for many requirements in gear wheel measuring technology. DuraMax Gear comes with the required software and hardware, including stylus material for a broad range of applications. If the product being tested changes, standard inspection procedures often require new, expensive modifications. DuraMax Gear, however, is a CNC all-rounder that, when combined with CAD-based Calypso and Gear Pro involute measuring software, quickly, easily and reproducibly measures all changes. DuraMax Gear is available as a tabletop machine or with an optional base. Its design enables part loading from four sides.
With Calypso measuring software and Gear Pro involute, which was specially developed to measure spur and helical gears, it is now possible to complete all jobs in daily gear measurement. This includes spur and helical gears, and splines in accordance with the applicable standards. With the Calypso QS-STAT OUT log output option included with delivery, customers are well-equipped to assess processes using a comprehensive, statistical evaluation of quality information relevant to production.
