5-Axis CMMs for Smart Factory Environments

Advanced Industrial Measurement Systems (AIMS) has engineered coordinate measurement machines (CMMs) that can perform fast, accurate inspections and gather data.

AIMS will demonstrate at its booth its Revolution Series HB Shop Floor CMM fitted with a Renishaw 5-axis PH20 probe head. Visitors can also see AIMS' lab-grade Revolution Series LM demonstrated at Renishaw's booth #135509. The LM is fitted with a Renishaw 5-axis REVO 2, which is able to collect workpiece data with 2-D and 3-D tactile probes, a surface roughness measurement probe or non-contact vision probe.

The HB has a polymer cast base that includes vibration resistance and thermal stability. "The only 5-axis mobile CMM in the industry, the HB monitors data process flow in real time because the PH20 quickly obtains high-density points for feature size, location and form for accurate and actionable data," said a company spokesperson. "The hard bearing machine does not require air and can be moved onto the shop floor to gather data at the point of use."

The lab-grade LM is built with linear motors that work off of permanent magnets that do not wear out. Electronic signals are sent to the motor, using the natural force of the magnet to generate a small magnetic field that interacts with the magnets. The LM has a granite work plate and aluminum mobile bridge for higher rigidity and lower inertia.

AIMS engineers will be available to talk about the HB and LM along with the OEM's total aftermarket support program and retrofit services along with Renishaw MODUS software. AIMS will also display custom gauging designed and built by CMI, a division of AIMS.
