Axiom Too CMM

CNC Machining Inspection Plant

The Complete Shop Floor Inspection 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 solid granite 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.

Capacity – X = 640mm, Y = 1200mm, Z = 500mm
