  • Maintaining Longevity Of Large Bridge CMM

    Regular maintenance programme enables over two decades of precision with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence

    Founded over 57 years ago, China Airlines is the main airline carrier in Taiwan, operating over 1 400 flights per week to 118 airports in 115 cities across Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. With a fleet of 84 aircraft, regular engine repairs and maintenance programmes are crucial.

    Medical Checks for Each Engine

    With over 2 000 employees located at two manufacturing hubs in Taipei and Kaohsiung, 80 engines are repaired and maintained each year between the two sites. The aeroengine is transported to the hub in Taipei located at Taoyuan Airport where it is carefully dismantled, which begins the process to establish if general maintenance or repair is needed.

  • AIMS to present Metrology Forum Oct. 2-3

    AIMS Metrology, a manufacturer of 5-axis CMMs, will hold a Metrology Forum at its Dayton, Ohio, production facility Oct. 2-3, 2019. from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event will feature guest speakers from Honda and Renishaw, and visitors will see the technology behind the company’s Revolution series 5-axis LM and HB CMMs.

    Visitors are encouraged to bring a part for inspection evaluation, so that company representatives can help them determine whether they need a lab-grade or mobile 5-axis CMM and select the most appropriate probe head.

    Dan Sokolow, engineering coordinator for Honda Transmissions Mfg., will address visitors Oct. 2. He’ll talk about the cost analysis and ROI behind replacing custom gauging with the HB mobile 5-axis CMM and its potential for automation. On Oct. 3 Renishaw’s Chief Industrial Metrologist Ken Bergler will focus his discussion on REVO 2 5-axis scanning and demonstrate SFP2’s 6-axis capabilities, along with other advances in probe heads.

  • LK Introduces Compact Multi-Sensor CMMs

    LK Metrology has announced its new, ALTERAC ceramic-bridge coordinate measuring machine (CMM) range. Using the latest metrology software, multi-sensor technology and CMM designs, the compact systems are intended for demanding quality control applications.

    The new range of CMMs has been introduced offering high accuracy and repeatability in a compact footprint. Manufactured at the company’s UK plant, the new ALTERAC machines are available in three sizes – 7.7.5, 10.7.5, and 10.7.7 – their respective X,Y,Z axis movements being 700 x 650 x 500 mm, 1,000 x 650 x 500 mm and 1,000 x 650 x 650 mm.

    ALTERAC is equally at home in an inspection department or on the shop floor, especially as pneumatic mounts isolate the CMM from nearby sources of low frequency vibration such as large machinery. The CMM controller may be either stand-alone, or integrated into the machine base with an arm mounted monitor and keyboard, providing the customer a choice that best suits the installation site. The inclusion of Renishaw encoders with 0.05 μm resolution optical scales for high volumetric accuracy not only leads to outstanding metrology but also provides immunity to the ingress of contaminants.
