Carl Zeiss Industrial Measuring Technology Introduces New Multi-Sensor Spectrum CMM



MINNEAPOLIS, March 24 - Carl Zeiss Industrial Measuring Technology today introduced at WESTEC '03 (Booth # 6022) the new SPECTRUM multi-sensor coordinate measuring machine (CMM). This new bridge-type CMM was designed to meet the market's demand for an economical, high-performing CMM with sensor upgrade capability. SPECTRUM covers a wide range of applications and gives users access to a variety of Carl Zeiss and Renishaw probing technologies.

Equipped with the RDS (rotary dynamic sensor) system, SPECTRUM can measure extreme complex geometries. The RDS articulating probe offers +/- 180 degrees of bi-directional rotation and permits indexing steps of 2.5 degrees reaching 20,736 individual positions. With the ViSCAN optical probe and the DTS non-contact trigger probe, the operator can perform optical measuring tasks in all directions.

SPECTRUM models offer x, y, z measuring ranges from 700 x 700 x 600 mm to 1000 x 2100 x 600 mm. A raised bridge option, available with the 1000 mm models, increases the effective Z-axis measuring range to 780 mm. Ceramic guideway technology provides high stability against temperature changes and all dynamic influences. The machine's accuracy of up to MPEe 2.5 + L/250 is guaranteed over a temperature range from 18 to 24°C (64-75°F).

SPECTRUM is equipped with a C99 ISC (Intelligent Scanning Controller) that permits future upgrades to scanning probes. Dual graduated-control joysticks offer precise control of the 3-axis movement. The variable speed control feature changes or pauses CNC program measuring speed which aids during program verification. Zeiss wrap-around patented air bearings in all three guideways provide rigidity and stability at maximum speeds and accelerations.

SPECTRUM is available with Windows-based Calypso CAD software. Calypso can be combined with HOLOS, designed for the measurement of 3D surfaces and DIMENSION, a software designed for reverse engineering tasks.

Carl Zeiss Industrial Measuring Technology, headquartered in Oberkochen/Germany with manufacturing plants in Oberkochen and Minneapolis/USA, is the technology and market leader of coordinate measuring technology. The full-service supplier of metrology equipment employs 1,300 people worldwide and generates a revenue of EURO 300 millions.
