Aberlink Xtreme CNC CMM
Designed using a non-Cartesian structure and utilising linear motors and mechanical bearings, as its name implies, the 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 allow the Xtreme to be placed wherever it is needed.
Another unique advantage of the Xtreme is that all of the struts are temperature controlled to operate above ambient air temperature. This means that the measurement accuracy is maintained even when the surrounding environment is not temperature controlled.
The innovative Xtreme CMM is an evolution of CMM technology. However, it is the price of this machine that is the primary reason why the new Xtreme has had such a significant effect on the market.
