Zenith 3 CNC CMM

Affordable large precision measurements

The Zenith 3 CNC CMM is the result of a design evolution of the award-winning Zenith too range of machines, taking into account over 20 years of CMM design experience. Many of the design improvements revolve around the right leg of the machine, which has been modelled on the hugely successful Azimuth machine.

The bridge and all moving parts are light and this, combined with superior design, means that the Zenith 3 has low inertia and therefore optimal acceleration characteristics. The improved Zenith is fast, minimising inspection times. Greater air bearing separation results in greater stiffness, and so has improved the accuracy significantly. The first term error for this new model is more than a micron better than the Zenith too.

All of this comes with no cost penalty: The Zenith 3 CMM is the same hugely competitive price that its predecessor was famed for, making large-scale CMM measurements not only simple, but affordable.

Azimuth CNC CMM

From strength to strength

As CMMs get larger, it is not simply a case of scaling up the design of smaller models. The stiffness of the structure is critical, but weight must also be kept to a minimum. The Azimuth CMM is not only Aberlink’s largest in their range of CMM products, but it is the culmination of over twenty years experience and excellence in the design and manufacture of innovative metrology equipment incorporating the very latest materials technology.

The revolutionary bridge of the Azimuth incorporates aluminium honeycomb sheets developed for use in Formula One and the aerospace industry. The remarkable stiffness to weight ratio that this provides gives the Azimuth an edge in both performance and speed. For a machine of this size, the Azimuth is not only fast but extremely accurate. The drive systems designed for the Azimuth offer simplicity and reliability and the novel system used on the Y axis ensures that there is no degradation of performance across the full range of machine sizes offered up to 3m.

A big machine should also be able to measure a heavy component and this is another area where Aberlink has applied innovative thinking. Rather than simply increasing the depth of the granite table, which adds huge cost and weight to the machine, we offer a specially designed load plate to sit on the granite base. This plate can accept up to a six-tonne load which will then be transmitted directly through the feet of the machine bench directly to the floor, meaning no loss of metrology performance whatsoever.

Axiom too CNC CMM

The complete shop floor inspection system

Fast, accurate and reliable, the Axiom too CNC CMM comes in four different sizes with Y axis travel up to 1500mm. The Axiom too can be used with touch trigger probe, continuous contact scanning probe or with Aberlink’s revolutionary non-contact camera system.

The all aluminium bridge structure not only ensures that the Axiom too has low inertia and high acceleration to get the job done quickly, but also that the temperature of the machine rapidly follows the temperature of the room, ideal when the CMM is not housed in a controlled environment. Temperature compensation in the software reports results as if they had been measured at 20°C/68°F

The standard high-tech granite and aluminium table, originally developed for the optics industry, provides fantastic natural damping of high frequency vibration and the granite Y rail allows pre-loading of the bridge air bearings in both directions for superior accuracy.

Axiom too HS CMM

High Spec Shop Floor CMM

Since 2004 the Axiom too CMM has been providing manufacturing industry with a fast and accurate solution for their measurement problems, but as ever, Aberlink are continually striving to improve the solutions which we offer. The Axiom too HS is both faster and more accurate than the standard model, and all without compromising the fantastic value for money for which Aberlink have become renowned.

Rather than using the belt drive system, the Axiom too HS incorporates drive rod technology developed on our larger machines and vision products. This allows even greater accelerations to be achieved meaning that the HS model measures approximately 20% quicker than the standard variant – ideal for high volume measurement.

The Axiom too HS also utilises 0.1µm resolution scales on each axis. Incorporated with state-of-the-art error mapping techniques this means that the HS model is the most accurate machine ever produced by Aberlink – ideal when measuring tight tolerances.

Xtreme CNC CMM

The complete shop floor inspection system

Designed using a non-Cartesian structure and utilising linear motors and mechanical bearings, as its name implies, the award-winning Xtreme CNC CMM provides a robust solution for providing precision inspection results. The unique CMM’s advantageous configuration ensures that it maintains its accuracy at very fast measurement rates and does not suffer from the accumulative inaccuracies that occur in conventional 3-axis Cartesian designs.

Now available in two sizes, the Xtreme is a self-contained inspection unit. It has no air bearings, so no requirement for compressed air – just plug it in and go. Built-in temperature control and a compact footprint allow the Xtreme to be placed wherever it is needed.

Another unique advantage of the Xtreme is that all of the struts are temperature controlled to operate above ambient air temperature. This means that the measurement accuracy is maintained even when the surrounding environment is not temperature controlled.

The Xtreme can be supplied with either a 22″ LED monitor side-mounted on an ergonomic arm or, a touch-screen monitor mounted at head height on the front panel of the machine.

  • No compressed air required – the Xtreme is ‘plug and go’
  • The Xtreme’s mechanical bearings mean that it is robust, so ideal for less than perfect environments
  • Built-in temperature control – accuracy is maintained even when ambient temperature is not controlled
  • Aberlink’s revolutionary easy-to-use measurement software
  • Shortest learning curve of any equivalent system – 1 day without prior CMM experience
