Launch of the AccuFlex series of coordinate measuring machines – Metrology and Quality News

Made to Measure launched the AccuFLEX series of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). Built in the USA, this new line of machines includes bridge, shop, horizontal and gantry models to serve a wide range of industries and applications.

“Our AccuFLEX wallet is unlike any other in the industry. It not only meets current customer needs, but is designed to support the changing environment with its open software platform,” said Sven Bley, president and CEO of Made to Measure. “Each machine comes with either Modus or Verisurf software, but customers have the freedom to use virtually any CMM software.”

Each AccuFLEX CMM is powered by Renishaw controllers, amplifiers and scales, allowing the use of any Renishaw probe head technology. Options include Renishaw’s 3-axis PH10, its 5-axis PH20, as well as its revolutionary 5-axis scanning REVO-2. Renishaw controllers are not only compatible with all of its probing systems, but also with all of its sensors, which are I++ DME compliant, allowing integration with almost any CMM software. Additionally, with Renishaw’s durable gold plated scales, superior reliability and repeatability as low as 1.9 µm can be achieved.

Additionally, the AccuFLEX CMM lineup easily brings together non-contact measurements at the highest level of accuracy with Nikon’s L100 and LC15DX CMM laser scanners. Each machine is equipped with Tsunami’s air filtration system, which removes virtually all contaminants from the compressed air system.

“Made to Measure not only sells AccuFLEX CMMs, but our team of metrologists and technicians use them every day. We know firsthand the accuracy, speed and flexibility required to inspect large volumes, tight tolerances and complex geometries. We provide CMMs that deliver superior capabilities and bring unparalleled value to every customer project,” Bley said.

AccuFLEX CMM Portfolio

AccuFLEX elite is a traditional bridge-style CMM that offers uncompromising accuracy and versatility. Its all-granite construction provides stable performance. With a hysteresis-free belt drive, smooth repeatable motion can be achieved. It is ideal for serving the medical, aerospace, plastics and machining industries. AccuFLEX elite is available in a range of measurement volumes from 500 x 600 x 400 mm to 1500 x 2500 x 1400 mm.

AccuFLEX enduro is a rugged CMM designed to withstand the harsh conditions of a workshop. Its compact size, absence of air and temperature compensation allow it to be easily positioned next to a production line. With a measurement volume of 700 x 600 x 500 mm and a measurement accuracy of 2.5 + L/300 µm, the AccuFLEX enduro is an operator-friendly CMM that does not require trained metrologists to operate. The axes have high precision linear guides with a speed machine dynamics of 700 mm/sec and an acceleration of 1200 mm/sec/sec.

Atlas AccuFLEX

AccuFLEX skyline is a horizontal arm CMM ideal for measuring exceptionally long or tall parts, including body-in-white components and sub-assemblies. This flexible machine is built with a granite base, spring-balanced Z-axis and advanced composite Y-axis for stability. It is available in one or two arm configurations and is suitable for the workshop. It best serves the automotive industry, large assemblies and sheet metal fabricators.

Atlas AccuFLEX has an open access structure, allowing easy inspection of large parts. This gantry CMM offers high-precision bearings in all axes, enabling it to measure large or heavy parts with accuracy from 5+L/350µm.
