The Optiv Performance 443 provides users with a precision system at an affordable price, according to supplier Hexagon Metrology. The device is capable of both contactless and tactile measurement procedures. The comprehensive options package includes tactile scanning, touch-trigger probes, vision sensors, chromatic white light and through-the-lens lasers.

As the only machine of its class, the Optiv Performance 443 can be provided with the company’s Dual Z-Design. The design involves two vertical Z-axes that can be moved independently of one another. One is intended for optical sensors, and the other holds tactile sensors. While the tactile sensor takes measurements, the axis with the optical sensors is located outside the measuring range. As a result, there is plenty of space for any type of sensor to be used with the measuring machine. The unit can thus, for example, be combined with a motorised indexable head for probes and a high-speed scanning sensor.
