The latest Nikon Metrology CAMIO7.2 software version now supports Renishaw’s ultra-high accuracy fixed head SP80 scanning probe. The Renishaw SP80 scanning probe when combined with Nikon Metrology’s ceramic bridge CMMs will find wide use in automotive power train applications, where high accuracy form measurement, with deep reach into components, is required.
Fully integrated within Nikon Metrology’s CAMIO software platform, with intuitive programming tools and reporting for prismatic shape inspection, the SP80 can carry styli up to 800mm long and 500g mass, including star configurations which do not require counterbalancing.
Also new in 7.2 is the tool change manager that automatically executes all change sequences and eliminates the need for user programming. Inspection programs can be ported from offline programming stations, or from one CMM to another, without modification or moving the change rack. For maximum flexibility multiple and mixed rack types are also support on the same CMM.
The new integrated reporting package is up to 60% more productive, with inspection reports created in real-time during the measurement cycle.
