Hexagon Metrology, Inc. has announced that precision component manufacturer Milwaukee Machine Works has purchased a Leitz PMM-G coordinate measuring machine.
The Leitz measuring machine has a measuring capacity of 3 meters wide by 4 meters long, and 2.5 meters high. The PMM-G is a gantry configuration machine that allows large-scale parts up to 30,000 pounds to be moved inside for precision measurement. It also boasts the highest accuracy specifications for its size, according to the company, enabling precision measurements to be made for case, cover and housing parts for the wind, off-highway and mining industries that comprise Milwaukee Machine Works’ typical customer base.
“This new machine is a huge enhancement to our capabilities,” says Mike Manna, general manager of Milwaukee Machine Works. “We are known for tackling the toughest, highest precision, turning and machining jobs in the business—jobs that other shops just don’t have the capability or expertise to handle. Now we will have a measuring machine with the size, capacity and accuracy to handle the very largest parts we are capable of making—single parts that are the size of small cars.”
