Zeiss DuraMax Evolves Into Shopfloor Gear Wheel Measuring Machine
September 24, 2015
Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology will feature the Zeiss DuraMax. With DuraMax, Zeiss offers a compact 3-D coordinate measuring machine. DuraMax Gear marks the evolution of DuraMax into a shopfloor 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, LLC.
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 and its small footprint.
DuraMax is designed 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 designed 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 developed to measure spur gears, it is now possible to complete all jobs in daily gear measurement. This includes straight and slanted-tooth spur gears, and splines in accordance with the applicable standards. With the qs-STAT interface option, customers are well-equipped to assess processes using a comprehensive, statistical evaluation of quality information relevant to production.
