AIMS Metrology’s Summit 10.10.10 coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is engineered with a 5-axis REVO-2 dynamic scanning probe and 1m3 capacity. The Summit gives a range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, and medical, the capacity to handle high volume, large parts inspection. The CMM can be automated with a robot load/unload system or pass through process with a conveyor and provides the industry’s largest workpiece weight of 2,200kg while preserving valuable floor space.

The REVO-2 provides measuring speeds up to 500mm/second and data collection rates of up to 4,000 points per second for increased part throughput. Rapid calibration for all positions expands uptime. Infinite positioning and 5-axis motion offer easy access to difficult features while flexible tip sensing aids accuracy and flexibility.

Dual linear motors work off permanent magnets that don’t wear out. Conventional belt and pulley mechanisms tend to break, resulting in costly service calls and extensive downtime. AIMS’ design minimizes wear and tear for zero maintenance and enhanced uptime. The result is precision positioning and reliability.

Summit’s polymer-cast base has built-in vibration resistance and thermal stability for longer life and greater accuracy, unlike granite shop floor machines. The CMM uses 110/220 volt outlets eliminating the need for shop air. In addition to robotic or pass through conveyor automation, the Summit can be equipped with automatic tool adjustment for tool wear. The Summit supports metal cutting and forming industries and is also suited to composite manufacturing applications.
