Hexagon Metrology (North Kingstown, RI, US) reports that its 4.5.4 SF coordinate measuring machine (CMM) has been updated to expand capabilities. This shop-floor CMM now includes integrated workspace LED lighting to assist the operator in poor lighting conditions. In addition, the bolt-hole pattern in the CMM's granite base has been revised to accommodate a 300-mm kinematic plate for repeatable dedicated fixturing. Among other improvements are granite etching to define the measurement envelope in the X and Y axes, optional programmable status lighting on the Z axis that signals the machine’s progress in the measurement routine, power switches located on the front of the machine to add ease-of-use, and an integrated monitor and keyboard arm. The 4.5.4 SF CMM can fit through a standard size door and located anywhere dimensional inspection is needed. The 4.5.4 SF also uses standard 110/220V outlets with no need for shop air. Other features such as advanced thermal isolation, temperature compensation and covered bearing ways help enhance the unit's durability.
