The RA is a CNC horizontal arm CMM and can be supplied with touch trigger, scanning or optical probe systems. The RA is mainly used in the automotive and supplier industries, tool and die making and for gauges and fixtures. The machines are also shop hardened allowing for their installation close to the point of production.

 

The mechanical bearing of the RA series are top mounted. This design allows the easy placement of heavy components up to complete vehicles on the CMM. Linear guideways ensure precise movement in the X axis; precision rollers support the Y and Z axes. The machines are available in duplex configuration (RAD) increasing Y measuring volume. The extremely stable steel band protection system prolongs the life of the working parts of the RA measuring machine. The arms can work individually or in a joint coordinate system. The machine designs are modular allowing the machines to be build to suit an applications precise measuring volume.

 

Mobile control elements are optionally available for maximum flexibility and ergonomics. The RA series is characterized by design simplicity, easy maintenance and high robustness. The RA can also be operated manually. This allows for example the marking of models in mould making and design.

 

Advantages at a glance: 

 

  • Touch Probe, Laser Scanning, Optical and Milling Applications
  • Standard and Premium accuracy model available for different accuracy requirements
  • High precision encapsulated Linear Guideways bearings on X and Z for extended life
  • Optional pneumatic disengageable drive allowing manual operation
  • Y Arm produced from carbon fibre with bonded hardened steel bearing surfaces for reduced mass, increased rigidity and less thermal distortion
  • Scale mounted on underside of arm to eliminate contamination
  • Duplex models have 100 mm arm overlap
  • Motion path blending optimization for cycle time reduction and smoother motion
  • Optional Pneumatic vibration isolation system


Arm Machine RSplus

The RSplus is a CNC horizontal arm CMM and can be supplied with touch trigger, scanning or optical probe systems. The RSplus is suitable for full Body-in-White (BIW) automotive applications, mould and die and toolmakers. Typical parts are complete vehicle bodies and individual assembly groups, plastic interior parts, seats and large components of all kinds. The machines are also shop hardened allowing for their installation close to the point of production.

 

The linear guideways of the RSplus are side mounted. Precision roller bearings provide the highest level of speed and precision. The machine designs are modular allowing the machines to be build to suit an application precise measuring volume. The superior design and compact arrangement of the guide elements of the X axis provides perfect accessibility for measuring and maintenance tasks from all sides. By this construction, the CMM can easily be moved to another location.

 

Duplex models are supplied to increase the measuring range in the Y axis. The arms can work individually or in a joint coordinate system. The RSplus can also be operated manually. This allows for example the marking of models in mould making and design. Mobile control elements are optional and available for maximum flexibility and ergonomics.

 

Advantages at a glance:

 

  • Touch Probe, Laser Scanning, Optical and Milling Applications
  • Standard and Premium accuracy model available for different accuracy requirements
  • High precision encapsulated roller bearings on X and Z for extended life
  • Optional pneumatic disengageable drive allowing manual operation
  • Low wear vibration free linear toothed drive belt provide smooth arm motion. Motor drive belts provide zero backlash solution
  • Easy maintenance - Bearing cassette design of Y axis allows for bearing exchange without disturbing machine geometry unlike competitors’ machines which need to be stripped as a major overhaul
  • Duplex models have 100 mm arm overlap
  • Optional pneumatic vibration isolation system

The machines are also more shop hardened allowing for their installation close to the point of production. The machines are also shop hardened allowing for their installation close to the point of production.

 

The mechanical bearing of the RAplus series are top mounted. This design allows the easy placement of heavy components up to complete vehicles on the CMM.

 

RAplus machines are designed with higher dynamics to allow machines to pace production and measure more parts per hour. The Z axis is encapsulated for improved temperature stability. The RAplus Series is available in single or dual arm configurations. The RAplus can also be operated manually. This allows for example the marking of models in mould making and design.

 

Advantages at a glance:

 

  • Touch Probe, Laser Scanning and Optical inspection applications
  • Toothed linear allowing manual operation drive belts provides vibration and stress free low maintenance solution
  • Y Arm produced from carbon fibre with bonded hardened steel bearing surfaces for reduced mass, increased rigidity and less thermal distortion
  • Scale mounted on underside of arm to eliminate contamination
  • Duplex models have 100 mm arm overlap
  • Optional Pneumatic vibration isolation system
  • Bellow covers to Z-axis for dirt protection
