LK Metrology Introduces 5-Axis Multi-Sensor CMM for Complex Component Inspection
March 26, 2019
LK Metrology, Inc. has introduced a new Altera CMM called the Scantek 5, that is coupled with Renishaw’s Revo-2 scanning system and multi-sensor technology to offer manufacturers a 5-axis solution for inspecting dimensional accuracy and surface finish of components.
The Altera Scantek 5 features a ceramic construction of the CMM beam and spindle, which combines optimal stiffness-to-weight ratio for exceptional responsiveness with mechanical and thermal stability for consistent performance across all manufacturing environments.
The Scantek 5 multi-sensor package includes Renishaw's proven, intuitive Modus software for importing data, controlling the CMM, acquiring results and reporting, including GD&T (geometric dimensioning and tolerancing) labelling. The machine's high scanning speed of 500 mm per second boosts measurement throughput, shortens production lead-times, provides a comprehensive awareness of product conformance, and prevents the metrology department from becoming the bottleneck in the factory.
A wealth of textual and graphical reporting functionality is offered, including multi-part inspection for series production and real-time reporting during program execution. Data exchange to third party applications such as Excel, XML or SQL is provided, as well as to Q-DAS for statistical process control.
