Due to the global sales success of the recently launched Xtreme CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), Aberlink will be demonstrating a new, larger volume version of the novel machine at the forthcoming Control Exhibition (stand 7207).

To help satisfy the growing demands for automated inspection, an Xtreme CMM fitted with a new 16 Digital Input / Output Interface, will be shown being robot loaded. The easy to use I/O Interface will work with any Aberlink CNC CMM and can be quickly configured by the CMM user. Aberlink Xtreme CMMs represent a robust solution for providing precision inspection results. The unique CMMs' advantageous configuration ensures that they maintains their accuracy at very fast measurement rates and do not suffer from the accumulative inaccuracies that occur in conventional 3-axis Cartesian designs.

Also being put through their paces, will be several versions of Aberlink's best-selling Axiom too CMMs featuring a new temperature compensation facility. Now, in addition to multiple part temperature sensors, each of the CMMs' X-Y-Z axis will include temperature sensors. The popular CMMs will be running the latest version of Aberlink's MK4 Vision software featuring a wider range of new non-contact measurement functions.

An Axiom too HS, fitted with a PH10T-TP20 probe, will be demonstrated running Aberlink's latest CAD software modules. The HS is the high-specification variant of Aberlink's Axiom too CMM. In addition to boasting an enhanced accuracy specification, the impressive speed of the HS variant enables it to perform a remarkable number of inspection tasks in a fraction of the time normally taken.

Last but not least, Aberlink's large Zenith 3 1500, CNC CMM, fitted with a PH10M-SP25M, will illustrate the latest Aberlink 2D and 3D scanning capabilities that are designed for applications such as reverse-engineering CAD models.
