Zenith 3 CNC CMM

Affordable large precision measurements

The Zenith 3 CNC CMM is the result of a design evolution of the award-winning Zenith too range of machines, taking into account over 20 years of CMM design experience while retaining the hugely competitive price that its predecessor was famed for - making large scale CMM measurements simple and affordable.

Engineering Evolution

Many of the Zenith 3's design improvements revolve around the right leg of the machine, which has been modelled on the hugely successful, larger, Azimuth CMM.

Superior Design

The bridge and all moving parts are light and this, combined with superior design, means that the Zenith 3 has low inertia and therefore optimal acceleration characteristics. The improved Zenith CMM is fast, minimising inspection times.

Improved Accuracy

Greater air bearing separation results in greater stiffness, and so has improved the accuracy significantly. The first term error for the Zenith 3 CMM is more than a micron better than the Zenith too.
