SURFCOM C5 was designed for fully automatic surface measurements in volume production. Usually, mobile surface measurement systems are used for measurements in volume production. The high amount of manual labor and possible errors and influencing parameters have a negative impact. This is where SURFCOM C5 comes into play. Fully automatic surface measurements are faster, more reliable and cheaper. Five CNC axes ensure that measurement locations can be easily reached. In addition to the CNC axes in the X-Y-Z direction, SURFCOM C5 features a cross feeder and a tilt axis for the sensor. This ensures that measurements can be made in all orientations. The open system design is based on the 3D measuring machines with a large measuring table and hard stone. This is ideal for implementing individual loading strategies and part-specific fixtures. Fully automatic measurements enable higher measuring throughput. Large parts such as crankcases and cylinder heads can be measured quickly thanks to the high positioning speed of 100 mm/s. The X tracing driver features a linear drive, which is free from vibrations and thus considerably faster. The non-contact drive principle of the linear drive does not cause friction, thus markedly reducing maintenance costs.
