Renishaw’s XM-600 laser measurement system
West Dundee, Illinois – Renishaw will feature the XM-600 laser measurement system at IMTS 2018, booth #135509, September 10-15 in Chicago.
Using technology developed for the XM-60 multi-axis calibrator, the newly launched XM-600 offers enhanced capability to connect directly with Renishaw’s range of universal CMM controllers (UCC). This enables faster and easier error mapping, measuring all six degrees of freedom from a single set-up, in any orientation for linear axes.
The XM-600 communicates easily with Renishaw UCC software during the calibration routine to quickly build a complete error map of the CMM. This functionality is supported by UCCsuite V5.4 and higher, enabling the map of a CMM within half a day.
Since it maintains the same compatibility with CARTO software as the XM-60, the XM-600 is the ideal calibration solution for any manufacturing facility that uses both machine tools and CMMs.
