Original Press Release:
TESA MICRO-HITE 3D is a High Accuracy, Affordable Coordinate Measuring System
NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI-The new TESA MICRO-HITE® 3D coordinate measuring system from Brown & Sharpe TESA is an affordable high accuracy measuring instrument designed to fill the operational gap between precision hand-held measuring instruments and high-end coordinate measuring machines.
The all Swiss-made TESA MICRO-HITE 3D coordinate measuring system features a light alloy base fitted with a granite measuring table. The patented opto-electronic measuring system, developed in conjunction with TESA's MICRO-HITE® Electronic Height Gage, provides high accuracy and repeatability to 3 µm.
The offset triangular bridge design provides a low center of gravity and optimum stiffness-to-mass ratio. Air bearings provide frictionless motion in all three axes.
The TESA MICRO-HITE 3D coordinate measuring system offers an accuracy of 0.003 + 3(L/1000) mm. Measuring volume is 460 mm (15.74 in.) X 510 mm (17.71 in.) X 420 mm (19.68 in.).
The new measuring system is equipped with TESA REFLEX(TM) software. This intuitive software allows operators of all skill levels to perform 1, 2, and 3D measurement routines quickly and easily without the need for computer keyboard entries. All operations are controlled through an ergonomically positioned control panel. The patented Zmouse(TM) provides instant control of the measuring system from anywhere in the work envelope.
The TESA MICRO-HITE 3D coordinate measuring system includes the TESASTAR® Touch Trigger Probe or the TESASTAR-I® Indexable Probe. Both probes feature adjustable trigger force from 0.1 N to 0.3 N. The TESASTAR-i Indexable Probe is adjustable to 168 positions in 15º increments.
The TESA MICRO-HITE 3D coordinate measuring system is available with an optional fine adjustment. By adding a CCD camera, it can be converted into non-contact measuring system.
