Control show Nikon to offer increased accuracy and productivity
Germany – Nikon Metrology will be presenting the latest version of its high energy 450kV Computed Tomography for high density parts or aluminium castings
Nikon says that productivity improvements with its Altera bridge CMMS will be demonstrated by the latest laser scanners and automated scanning solutions. The robot-mounted Laser Radar for inline car inspection is also intended to deliver improved productivity.
Nikon will also be presenting its premium range of video measurement and microscopy solutions. The high power Microfocus 450kV Computed Tomography XT H 450 system is described as offering the necessary source power to penetrate through high density parts and generate a scatter-free CT volume with micron accuracy. Nikon Metrology’s 450 kV microfocus source is claimed to give industry-leading performance for small high density or small to medium castings, with 25 micron repeatability and accuracy. Multi-sensor ALTERA CMM for best-in-class combination of productivity and flexibility Improved productivity, enhanced metrology and greater flexibility are the hallmarks of this new generation of premium quality CMMs from Nikon Metrology.
Multi-sensor Altera CMM, combined with Camio and a wide range of tactile and optical sensors, combines to present a range of highly accurate CMMs that provide true support for multi-sensor measuring applications. When equipped with the LC15Dx, which achieves 1.9 µm MPEP accuracy, this laser scanning based system is claimed to further closes the gap with tactile measurement systems.
Nikon says that its robot-mounted Laser Radar (LR) can provide a distinct alternative to traditional car body inspection methods, such as fixed inline camera systems or horizontal arm CMMs located in a separate measuring room. The company says that LR can measure almost any surface, including highly reflective bare body panels, shiny painted surfaces and lights. The LR can be used for both body-in white (BIW) and Flush-and-Gap inspections on finished cars.
