The new BENCHMARK™ CMM from COORD3 offers a high performance budget CMM with the added benefit of a small footprint. The unique ‘half-gantry’ advanced alloy design has its X and Y axis at the same level, providing increased rigidity and offers an outstanding metrology platform for high accuracy small and medium part CMM inspection.
The open structure BENCHMARK provides outstanding ergonomics and is ideal for the inspection of high volume production parts or single part inspection in the smaller manufacturing operations. Its compact size is ideal for production CMM or quality room applications and fits through a standard door width.
The full air-bearing BENCHMARK CMM, with accuracy of 2.5 microns and a measuring volume of 500mm x 400mm x 440mm comes standard with a Renishaw touch-probe.
BENCHMARK is available in manual or CNC configurations. Manual units can be upgraded to full CNC in the field at a later date, offering a two-phase investment in CMM technology. The CMM is the ideal Job Shop CMM and can also be used as a programmable production gage. In addition, optional wireless thermal compensation allows the BENCHMARK to measure accurately in shop conditions.
This BENCHMARK CMM is equipped with TouchDMIS™, the ‘game-changing’ software for CMM usability, offering the world’s first all TOUCH CMM software with full CAD capability. TouchDMIS requires just a few hours of training and an incredibility short learning curve. TouchDMIS takes the ‘expert’ out of CMM measuring and programming.
The software’s Measurement Wizard and Construction Professor minimize user input to the software; and access to the DMIS programming language is not required for measurements, programming or editing. TouchDMIS is loaded with innovative time saving features. Built in intellect provides the user with screen dynamics minimizing selection choices and eliminating traditional function searches. Rich screen graphics display every action before execution guiding the measuring process and eliminating potential user errors. Measured data can be presented as a unique Blueprint Report whereby a fully dimensioned drawing of the measured part is created for fast and easy interpretation of measured results.
Coord3 Industries, based in Torino Italy, is an ISO 9001:2000 certified CMM manufacturer with subsidiary operations in the USA, China and India.
