Inspection Services

Zeiss Micura CMM

Our Zeiss Micura is located in a temperature and humidity controlled inspection laboratory. A dedicated HVAC system with 5 averaging temperature sensors maintain temperature variations under 0.5 degree Celsius.

The Micura is equipped with a VAST XT gold sensor with navigator technology, providing active scanning. This sensor enables high-speed scanning featuring up to 200 measuring points per second. As a result, form and location parameters such as roundness and flatness can be precisely captured, in addition to geometric features, in a short time. The sensor can be equipped with extremely small stylus tips. The smallest stylus in use has a diameter of 0.3 millimetres. The Micura provides a measuring volume of 500 x 500 x 500 millimetres.

Our Zeiss Micura has been calibrated and certified to accuracy and repeatability of under 0.3 microns (0.0003 mm or 0.0000118 inches) for components under 100 mm long (4 inches). This is an incomprehensible level of accuracy. Consider that the wavelength of the visible light is 0.4 to 0.7 microns, we can claim measurement capability that exceeds the maximum resolving power of an optical microscope. 

Zeiss Centermax CMM-1

Our Zeiss CenterMax is also located in our temperature controlled inspection laboratory. HVAC systems maintain temperature control under 0.5 degrees Celsius of variation.

While the Zeiss CenterMax is designed to be used on the shop floor, and boasts temperature stability from +15ºC to +40ºC, with dynamic pneumatic vibration insulation and full dust and contaminant isolation, having a CMM with this level of isolation in a laboratory environment enhances accuracy even further. Using the same VAST XT gold high-end sensor from Ziess and navigator technology high-speed scanning of 200 measuring points per second is possible. The CenterMax enables large part inspection covering a volume of 1100 x 1200 x 700 millimetres.

Our Zeiss CenterMax has been calibrated and certified to accuracy and repeatability of under 0.4 microns (0.0004 mm or 0.0000157 inches) for components under 100 mm long (4 inches).

Alicona µCMM

Our Alicona µCMM is a purely optical CMM machine used to measure extremely tight tolerances in high accuracy. The Alicona enables us to combine the advantages of tactile coordinate measuring technology and optical surface measuring technology and measure the dimension, position, shape and roughness of components with only one sensor.

The optical CMM offers high geometric accuracy of several optical 3D measurements in relation to each other, enabling the measurement of small surface details on large components and precisely determining the position of these individual measurements in relation to each other. The spectrum of measurable surfaces includes all common industrial materials and composites such as plastics, PCD, CFRP, ceramics, chrome, silicon.

The µCMM allows volumetric accuracy under (0.8 + L/600) μm within it's measurement range of 310 mm x 310 mm x 310 mm, while collecting up to 500 million datapoints.

 

With our 150A objective, single surface measurement accuracy is enhanced to an unbelievable level of (0.15 + L/50) µm for full volumetric surface finish evaluation down to a level of 0.03 Ra μm and 0.02 Sa μm.

 

Radius measurement of down to 2 μm can be performed as well for non-contact evaluation of edge honing on sharp edges.
