Manchester Metrology invests in new Aberlink Xtreme

Precision measurements in even the most extreme manufacturing environments – CMM accuracy wherever you need it.

Manchester Metrology has recently invested in a new Aberlink Xtreme CMM which is being installed on 15th March.  An exciting new service, the Aberlink Xtreme CMM is ideal for inspecting smaller accurate parts in house.

The Xtreme is a revolutionary shop floor CNC CMM designed using a non-Cartesian structure and utilising linear motors and mechanical bearings. It is therefore an extremely robust, stand-alone inspection unit that is sold at a price that means precision measurements can now be made anywhere that you want them.

The award-winning Xtreme CNC CMM provides a robust solution for providing precision inspection results. The unique CMM’s advantageous configuration ensures that it maintains its accuracy at very fast measurement rates and does not suffer from the accumulative inaccuracies that occur in conventional 3-axis Cartesian designs.

The Xtreme is a self-contained inspection unit. It has no air bearings, so no requirement for compressed air – just plug it in and go. Built-in temperature control and a compact footprint allows the Xtreme to be placed wherever it is needed.

Another unique advantage of the Xtreme is that all of the struts are controlled to operate at 40°C. This means that the measurement structure of the Xtreme will always be at a constant temperature even when the ambient environment is not controlled and hence measurement accuracy will be maintained.
