Germany, Wetzlar – Upgrade for Leitz PMM C and Leitz PMM Hi coordintate measuring machines

 

 

 

Ultra-high accuracy machines made future ready

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced an upgrade for the Leitz PMM-C and Leitz PMM-Xi coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) to ensure the ultra-high accuracy metrology solutions are more adaptable for user needs now and in the future.

The Future-Ready Concept from Hexagon will optimise the machines for the SENMATION intelligent sensor automation system, by replacing the current pre-cabling with a universal alternative. The new pre-cabling concept will be installed on all standard configuration Leitz PMM-C and Leitz PMM-Xi CMMs allowing for more flexible application changes without costly downtime.

 

 

 

Intelligent sensor automation system to be used within a simple measurement procedure

The SENMATION intelligent sensor automation system allows different probe heads to be used within a simple measurement procedure without human interaction. Automated measurement cycles can be introduced to further increase speed and optimise the manufacturing process. Rework and rejection rates will also be reduced, creating a faster and more reliable quality assurance system.

Both the Leitz PMM-C and Leitz PMM-Xi machines can now handle an extended measurement portfolio including fixed and indexing probes and optical measurement options. Machines with the update will no longer need engineers to switch pre-cabling to facilitate application changes, allowing for better flexibility in the manufacturing process, reducing downtime costs and making the CMM more adaptable to changes in future technologies and processes.

 

 

 

Introduced the Future Ready Concept

“We are always looking for ways to improve and develop our CMMs and have taken the opportunity to make some of our best machines even better,” explains Holger Fritze, General Manager at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Germany. “By introducing the Future-Ready Concept our aim is to eradicate unnecessary downtime for our customers, speeding up measurement routines and allowing more flexibility in their workflows now, and in the future.”

The Future-Ready Concept will be introduced to standard configuration Leitz PMM-C and Leitz PMM-Xi machines from next year. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
