Leitz Reference HP

Leitz Reference HP - Fast and versatile inspection

Leitz_Reference_HP-M
The Leitz Reference HP (High Precision)is a bridge-type CMM and gear inspection center with movable portal - the ideal machine in its class for complex measuring tasks, combining high accuracy with optimum throughput. Available in various sizes, it ensures a fast, precise and cost-effective inspection of workpieces.  Equipped with the LSP probe system, the Leitz Reference can accomplish inspection tasks in single-point probing and High-Speed-Scanning mode. The Leitz Reference HP is also available with the Option XT (eXTended temperature range). With this option the CMM can be integrated in production easily.

The machines of the Leitz Reference HP series are economical scanning CMMs for solving complex measuring tasks. They are equipped with the Leitz LSP probe system developed and manufactured by Hexagon Metrology GmbH in Germany. It can execute both quick single-point probing for all typical measuring tasks and High-Speed-Scanning for form and contour measurements.

The accuracy of the measuring results and its universal applicability are decisively based on the 3D probe system. During every operation, it measures the surface of the part in the X, Y and Z directions simultaneously and, hence, automatically in the direction of the surface normal. Measuring without clamping the axes - this means that the probing system is positioned perpendicular to the surface of the part - the actual direction of the surface normal is determined for every measuring point. Thus, the deflection of the stylus can be calculated and compensated.

The Leitz Reference HP is not only a coordinate measuring machine. It can also be used as a gear inspection center in combination with the software QUINDOS. Over 30 packages, such as, for example, gears, bevel gears, worms, worm wheels, step gears, scroll and screw compressors are available.

With the Option XT - including a sophisticated temperature compensation - the Leitz Reference HP measures reliably throughout the extended temperature range of 15 to 30 degrees Celsius. Indispensible for measuring in a production environment.

LSP-S2 Probe Head (Leitz Reference HP 600/700/900)

With horizontal probe extensions of up to 800 mm length the continuous High-Speed-Scanning probe head LSP-S2 allows the measurement of features deep inside a work piece. Its integrated automatic weight balance system can carry styli configurations of up to 1000 g. LSP-S2 is the ideal probe head for long styli.

Probing deflections are measured via high resolution Linear Variable Differential Transducers (LVDT). The LSP-S2 supports all the standard probing modes like Single Point Probing, Self-Centering as well as Continuous High-Speed-Scanning for fast and accurate form and profile measurements.

Like all other Leitz probe heads, the LSP-S2 provides simultaneous and unclamped probing in all axis, always orthogonal to the surface. This allows the correct compensation of any styli deflection.

LSP-X3 Probe Head (Leitz Reference HP 5.4.3)

A compact, cost-effective but extremely accurate, 3D scanning probe head which can carry up to 360 mm long probing extensions and styli clusters.

The LSP-X3 offers fast single-point probing for all standard measuring tasks as well as High-Speed-Scanning for form and profile inspection and is ideally suited for dimensional control of small to medium high-accuracy prismatic parts and complex geometries.

An automatic tool changing capability allows styli change within a measuring program without the need for probe requalification. Magnetic clamping of styli on the head permits fast and reliable changes.

CMS 106

The CMS 106 laser scanning probe provides many benefits for metrology in a complete and powerful turnkey package via rapid point-cloud capture, including: Feature inspection to CAD (Thin walled / sheet metal parts), free form surface inspection to CAD and  reverse engineering.

CMS 106 key features:

  • Fully automatic – No complicated settings or parameters to worry about
  • High precision – Sensor accuracy of ±20um
  • Unique “3 x zoom” variable optical resolution - user selectable 25mm, 60mm or 120mm line length with up to 1000 points per line. Perfect for quick surface inspection of large areas or measurement of small isolated features.
  • Real time automatic laser power control – Unique, technology allows the laser intensity to be optimised 10 times during measurement of every single point
  • Reliable and reproducible results at all times plus a high measuring acceptance angle of ±60°, even on machined surfaces
  • Suitable for measuring almost any material, including machined, semi-finished, stamped, forged, cast, painted metals, sand cores, carbon fibre, plastics, clay, rubber, wood and ceramic.
  • Fully compatible with several probe changers for multi-sensor measurement
