Leading measurement solutions provider Hexagon Metrology has announced a new frame size for its high-accuracy coordinate measuring machine (CMM) range. The Leitz Reference HP 7.7.5 offers a compact solution ideal for measuring small workpieces with tight tolerances.
Using the proven design of the Leitz Reference line and with a measurement range of 700 x 700 x 500 mm, the Leitz Reference HP 7.7.5 provides the low levels of measuring uncertainty required by precision manufacturers. Equipped with the Hexagon Metrology HP-S-X3 Scanning Probe Head as standard, it can carry stylus configurations of up to 360 mm in length and 150 g in weight.
“The Leitz Reference HP 7.7.5 features all the technology that gives this range its characteristic accuracy, versatility and throughput,” explains Ingo Lindner, stationary CMM Product Line Manager at Hexagon Metrology. “This compact size has a small footprint but huge application potential across a number of industries.”
Designed as a universal measurement system with scope to adapt to a number of jobs throughout the production process, Leitz Reference line machines offer customers an efficient multipurpose solution without compromising on accuracy. Available with PC-DMIS or QUINDOS metrology software, they can also be configured as gear inspection centres.
