Contact-Only Measurement System

Vision Engineering is partnering with Aberlink Ltd to provide a contact-only measurement system to its range of metrology systems. This partnership will see Vision Engineering branding Aberlink's new Extol shop floor CMM as Deltron.

Deltron is a shop floor hardened non-Cartesian CMM with a delta robotic mechanism designed for repeatable motion, fast acceleration and a high level of measurement accuracy. The delta mechanism on Deltron operates with a maximum vector speed of 500 mm/sec and a maximum vector acceleration of 750 mm/sq. sec.

Deltron is built with temperature sensors to help ensure the measurement results are as though they were performed at 20 °C. This means the system can be positioned anywhere it is needed, next to a machine tool, in a manufacturing cell or used in a dedicated inspection area.

The cylindrical measuring volume of the system is 14.5" (370 mm) dia. x 10.6" (270 mm) in height. The measuring accuracy of 2.6 + 0.4L/100 µm incorporates 0.1 µm resolution scales and a granite base holds samples up to 440 lbs. (200 kg).

Deltron is delivered with ViTouch3D, an easy to use software suitable for a range of capabilities.

Güven Türemen, Vision Engineering's Group Commercial Metrology Manager, said, "We are delighted to partner with Aberlink in adding Deltron to our growing metrology product range, the first of a number of collaborative and innovative products between our companies. We use Aberlink CMM technology in our own manufacturing facilities in Surrey, UK, and in Connecticut. We know how important it is to have a robust and easy to use CMM in the heart of our machine shop to ensure consistent quality and compliance. Our emphasis has always been on ergonomics and ease of use in a production environment. Aberlink has taken delta positioning technology, widely used in automation, to create a true shop floor product for use close to the point of manufacture."
