Flexible CNC measuring stations with high precision

Contour measuring systems from ACCRETECH

Contour measuring systems

Flexible contour measuring gauges for various applications

Angles, radii, distances and coordinates of work pieces can be determined with the highly precise ACCRETECH contour measuring systems.

Due to the elimination of the ball screw and the nut, the inspection instruments work at a low vibration with a resolution of up to 0.31 nm. Another major advantage of linear technology, is it requires little maintenance and will maintain the measurement accuracy over the life of the gauge much better than tradition ball screw approach due to the reduction in mechanical wear. This gives our customers enormous cost savings over the life of the system.

The SURFCOM NEX 030 and the SURFCOM NEX 040 contour measuring systems are available for two-dimensional, tactile contour measurement. These are both flexible CNC measuring stations for various measurements. SURFCOM NEX 030 with a measuring accuracy of ±(1.5+|2H|/100) µm, standard version is suitable for measuring all contour geometry and surface of standard work pieces. SURFCOM NEX 040 with a high measuring accuracy of ±(0.8+|2H|/100) µm, suitable for measuring highly precise contour geometry such as ball screws or ball bearings.

ACCRETECH keeps a wide range of stylus for contour measuring gauges on hand so that even hard to reach geometries can be measured. Stylus can be swapped out quickly thanks to kinematic magnetic holders with high positioning accuracy. Profile, roughness or contour measurements are easy to conduct, and the process is efficient.

The software for operating the profile gauge tools is deliberately kept simple and self-explanatory. Measurements of roughness or surface for example are fully automated. Even calibration and adjustment are easy for the user to do, which saves times.

Benefits of ACCRETECH systems for contour measurements

ACCRETECH systems help with profile measurements by characterising details such as contour and surface. The benefits of using highly precise systems are as follows:

  • High measuring and positioning speed:
    Thanks to the patented linear drive motor, the systems work low on vibration and a resolution of up to 0,31 nm. The user measures work pieces efficiently while being low on maintenance cost.
  • Automated balance of temperature effects:
    The temperature sensor of the SURFCOM NEX series compensates the deviation of standards which naturally happens during profile measurements. Hereby, the accuracy of the systems is guaranteed in a temperature range of 20°C ± 5°C. The system measures contour and roughness and is therefore flexible in usage.
  • Detector and probes that reach even difficult positions:
    ACCRETECH has a broad portfolio of systems for contour measurements which are able to measure even positions that are difficult to reach. The user can change the probe arm easily and quickly.
