Astro Machine Works Adds CMM for Increased Quality Control

(Ephrata, PA) 1/23/14 Astro Machine Works Inc., located in Ephrata PA, has installed an Omni-Tech refurbished 20.12.10 LK G80C Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) to add to their Inspection room for increased Quality Control.

The newly upgraded LK CMM was built with Astro Machine Works in mind and is packed with the latest CMM controls by Renishaw, the leader in CMM innovation.  This includes the latest PH20 5-axis infinite probing technology and UCC 2 CMM controllers.   The machine is equipped with latest CMM-Manager Software allowing programs to be created directly from 3D CAD models.  CMM-Manager offers a fully integrated measurement system with advanced path planning, powerful alignment tools, and the power of reverse engineering support.

The Renishaw PH20’s unique ‘head touches’ function allows measurement points to be taken by moving only the head rather than the complete CMM structure. The 5-axis motion of the PH20 eliminates time-consuming indexing  and its infinite positioning capability allows easy access to features at any angle and guarantees optimum feature access, minimizing stylus changes.
