Zeiss Expands High-accuracy MICURA CMM Line

Maple Grove, Minn., Aug. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ideal for measuring small, intricate parts, the MICURA CMM from ZEISS Industrial Metrology with active scanning and submicron accuracy, now includes a model with an even larger measuring range. ZEISS will introduce this new MICURA model at IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show), in Chicago, September 10-15, 2018. The new system can handle bigger parts with a 40 percent larger measuring range of 500 x 700 x 500 millimeters and has a machine-mounted controller, saving floor space.

ZEISS MICURA comes with the VAST XT gold or the VAST XTR gold active scanning sensor. The speed and precision makes it a valuable inspection solution for medical devices and implants, optics and electronics. The VAST XT gold sensor enables high-speed scanning featuring up to 200 measuring points per second. Angled features are best suited for the VAST XTR gold sensor. Its integrated swivel joint enables the stylus system to turn as far as possible in 15 degree increments and thus always positions the stylus in the direction of the feature being measured. This saves time and money because fewer stylus systems and modifications are required, and it minimizes the need for a rotary table.

ZEISS MICURA is available with user-friendly CALYPSO metrology software that works with all ZEISS systems. This includes an extensive and expanding portfolio of coordinate measuring machines, optical systems, computed tomography machines and more.
