Hexagon Metrology launches the 7.10.7 SF, a new generation of shop-floor coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) specially designed to excel in harsh industrial environments. The device's computer, controller and interface boxes are housed in one self-contained unit for easy transport on the shop floor. The CMM has a measuring stroke of 710mm x 1010mm x 680mm, and uses standard 110/220 volt single phase outlets with no need for shop air. A major new feature is the integrated and flexible part fixture system enabling customers to locate up to four 300mm x 300mm fixture plates or one 500mm fixture plate on the table. Using a unique kinematic locating system, the fixture plates can be quickly loaded and unloaded, allowing users to swap individual parts or part types in a matter of seconds.
