24.04.2018 - With the new SF 87 Shop Floor Coordinate Measuring Machine, WENZEL has expanded its product portfolio with an entry-level system for the production environment.

thumb wenzel SF 87 1WENZEL’s brand new SF 87 has all the attributes needed for a shop floor CMM, but benefits from an optimum measuring volume for this type of construction in relation to its footprint. Further efficiency gains can be achieved by using more powerful probes and optical sensors.

A measuring volume of 800 x 700 x 700 [mm3] was realized to be aligned with common sizes of metal cutting and forming machines. Thus, this new cantilever measuring machine offers excellent price-performance ratio with a small footprint. High travel speeds and accelerations ensure high productivity. The SF 87 CMM can be used flexibly and can be easily repositioned with a pallet truck.

Ergonomic and user friendly
The intelligent machine concept was designed for high ergonomics and ease of use. This is reflected in many details, such as the variably adjustable working height of the operator station (optional), the compact integration of the computer and controller, the table height and design of the machine covers. This facilitates a pleasant and safe work environment in a limited production space.

Powerful optical and tactile sensors
This new universal device is multi-sensor capable and supports both optical and tactile sensors. With the PH10 motorized head, measurements can be made on difficult to access workpiece features from different angles. The PH10MQ PLUS can be equipped with extensions and powerful scanning probes, such as the SP25M.

In combination with WENZEL optical sensors SHAPETRACER and PHOENIX, components can be digitized quickly and with high resolution. The SF 87 can be equipped with tool change racks to switch probes and extensions automatically
