Hexagon Metrology announced the release of the Optiv Classic 443 tp, the newest model in the Optiv Classic series. Each unit comes touch probe-ready and includes a high-resolution CCD (charge-coupled device) camera for multi-sensor applications with micro- to nano-scale precision measurement requirements.
According to the company, the Classic 443 tp boasts a first term accuracy of 1.9 microns, making it ideal for the inspection of small scale features and parts like micro-hole dies, sieves, filters, fiber optics and inkjet nozzles as well as complex, densely populated precision parts from the medical, aerospace, electronics or automotive industries. This entry level, high-capacity multi-sensor CMM (coordinate measuring machine) provides more than five times the measurement volume of the Optiv Classic 321GL tp.
The unit includes calibrated lighting, a high-resolution color CCD camera, and a multi-segment LED triple angle ring light to create better contrast for edge detection. The multi-sensor CMM features a 12x CNC motorized zoom for continuous adjustment of field of view and resolution, and an LED status indicator providing a quick visual check of the machine's status.
It comes standard with PC-DMIS Vision image processing software and optional online 3D CAD capabilities for live programming of the machine to compare measured values to nominals.
