New Coordinate Measuring Machine Improves Accuracy in Fabricating Complex Glass Shapes

Precision Electronic Glass (PEG) recently installed a coordinate measuring machine to perform nondestructive measurements of complex shapes. Accurate measurements are critical to meeting stringent specifications and assuring consistency in glass parts used in x-ray, CT-scans, fiber optics, chromatography instruments, CO2 laser and other scientific, analytical or industrial instruments. The new CMM removes the human error and subjectivity from the inspection process while improving accuracy and making communication with customers easier during prototype development or the production run.

The CMM compares relations to multiple datum surfaces such as concentricity, run out, roundness, etc. Measured data is documented and downloaded automatically into an easy-to-read report which can be retrieved in an instant, ensuring that quality and adherence to specifications is maintained throughout the fabrication process. Low contact between the CMM and the piece being fabricated minimizes the chance of scratches and chips. The CMM probe moves around the product, significantly reducing operating cost and allowing PEG to be more competitive in the market.
