Manufacturers wishing to progress from manual metrology to using a CNC coordinate measuring machine (CMM) have a new option to consider – the new Alto 6.5.5 from CMM manufacturer LK Metrology based in Derby.
LK Metrology and Wenzel Technologies have entered into a strategic partnership. In addition to a joint technological cooperation, Wenzel will sell LK's high-performance coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and other metrological products in southern Germany.
At MACH 2022, LK Metrology will launch two larger sizes of coordinate measuring machine (CMM) in the company's entry-level Altera C range. The machines are an ideal solution for manufacturers looking to purchase their first motorised CMM as well as those that need additional measurement capacity.
LK Metrology, which has been manufacturing static co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) in the UK since 1963, has for the first time diversified into the supply of 3D articulating arm metrology systems, otherwise known as portable arms, with the launch of a range of 24 machines called Freedom arm.
Contract inspection and reverse engineering capacity has doubled while the size of component that can be measured has increased more than fivefold at Laser Scanning following the installation of a second, larger CMM built by LK Metrology.
Built in Castle Donnington, Derbyshire by LK Metrology, the high precision Altera range of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) has been coupled with Renishaw's Revo-2 scanning system and multi-sensor technology to offer manufacturers a powerful 5-axis solution for inspecting the dimensional accuracy and surface finish of components.
