Due to the component complexity and high customer demand in the business field “contract manufacturing-Linz”, we set up an air-conditioned measuring room and purchased a 3D coordinate measuring machine in 2012. After several technical meetings with the relevant manufacturers, the decision was made in favour of the “Zeiss” brand.
Peter Köck and an employee from the mechanical production department immersed themselves in the measuring machine’s complex control software “Calypso” for several days during the product training. With the software in harmonic interaction with the machine, the team selected features used in the design drawings and created measuring sequences with object-oriented programming. The technical possibilities range from single-point measurement to scanning a contour of measuring tasks. In addition, the measurement reports can be adapted to individual requirements.
With a measuring range – X = 1200 mm Y = 2400 mm Z = 1000 mm, the entire product range in the field of mechanical production is covered.
The following activities are performed:
Arena entrance tests (comparison measurements)
Monitoring of measuring equipment
Monitoring of mechanical production (preventive measures)
Programming and measurement of components for sampling
Did you know that a normal human hair is between 0.05 and 0.07 millimetres thick?
With our 3D measuring machine, we achieve a measuring accuracy of 0.0019 millimetres!
If you divide 1 human hair with a thickness of 0.06 millimetres into 30 parts, 1 part is approximately 0.002 millimetres and would correspond to the measuring accuracy of the machine.
WARNING: Please don’t try, you won’t be able to do it anyway!
The optimal measuring room temperature is 20°C? The temperature is controlled by means of air conditioning and for this reason it is very important that the measuring room is only opened when necessary in order to avoid possible fluctuations (the temperature has a very high influence on the measurement result).
With the implementation of the 3D coordinate measuring machine, we have achieved the framework conditions for the Champions League. Thanks to the outstanding commitment of our employees, we will reach the finale and win.
Let’s get the title!
