With easy-to-use software and choice of probing, including touch trigger, scanning and non-contact, ALTERA C provides the accuracy and flexibility needed for a range of metrology tasks. The compact ALTERA C conveniently fits into the smallest of spaces, and should your company’s requirements change, ALTERA C provides a future-proofed platform ready for additional capacity and new technology.
Multi-sensor CMM with enhanced capability
ALTERA S is an enhanced multi-sensor CMM for quality laboratories and manufacturing teams.
ALTERA S makes it simpler and faster to measure the most complex of parts in a single CMM set-up. Multi-sensor technology provides the precision of tactile probing and high-speed measurement of scanning and non-contact inspection, extending the application scope of your CMM to new materials and geometries in line with your evolving requirements.
High-performance multi-sensor CMM
ALTERA M is a high-performance multi-sensor metrology solution for series production, shopfloor environments and R&D.
ALTERA M provides dependable measurement results across all manufacturing environments. Superior multi-sensor technology provides the speed and flexibility needed to measure a range of parts in a fast-paced setting. CMM automation solutions fit seamlessly around your processes to provide 24/7 quality control and remote access to quality data from any internet enabled device.
Ten times faster than the closest rival, LK Metrology’s advanced SCANtek5 technology has boosted measurement throughput, shortened production lead times and provided a complete dimensional insight for manufacturers of precision parts and series production.
Combining the benefits of ceramic CMM technology and the most advanced 5-axis multi-sensor system, ALTERA SCANtek provides five interchangeable probe technologies, including tactile scanning, touch-trigger, surface finish and non-contact vision probes to enable automated selection of the most advantageous probing technology while maximising the advantages of 5-axis measurement, infinite probe head positioning and long probe assemblies.
Utmost accuracy and precision
When utmost precision is required, ALTERA SL delivers sub-micron accuracy (HA version).
Every aspect of the ALTERA SL has been optimised around the desire for ultra-high accuracy measurements. Metrology institutes and calibration laboratories trust the performance of the raised guideway design and flexibility of the moving bridge for a variety of research and industrial applications.
Large bridge CMM
MAXIMA can accommodate large and heavy workpieces, typically found in automotive, aerospace and industrial equipment applications, without the need for special foundations.
MAXIMA is available with a granite table, or the MAXIMA R with twin granite rails. The open design of the MAXIMA R provides safe and efficient access when loading/unloading parts using a floor level transfer system. Workpieces can be easily loaded from the front or rear of the machine, without the risk of collisions between the workpiece and machine. This increases loading and programming flexibility, giving time savings in inspection and overall production cycles.
Large gantry CMM
The AEROS range of gantry CMMs provide a super-sized metrology solution for components and assemblies typically found in heavy transportation, communication and satellite equipment.
The open-structure design provides clear and easy access to the measuring volume for part loading/unloading and integration with part transfer systems. For consistent performance, particularly when operating in an open shop environment, innovative design features have been incorporated into the guideway support system and bearing tracks, in addition to high-resolution optical scale system for accurate positional feedback and precise motion control.
High-accuracy super-size gantry CMM
The ULTRA range of high performance very large gantry CMM machines owe their outstanding performance to advanced technical solutions such as superior ceramic technology for the gantry beam and column, a dual drive and scale system on the main carriage, and structural temperature compensation.
Designed for operation in industrial environments, ULTRA advances the high-speed, high-accuracy inspection of super-size components, such as aerospace structures, maritime engines, or power generation that require measuring systems with virtually unlimited measuring volumes.
Cost-effective horizontal arm CMM
The LY-90 provides a technically advanced, cost-effective solution for the dimensional control of sheet metal parts, plastic trim and sub-assemblies found in vehicle manufacture.
The open design of the LY-90 structure gives optimum access to the work area with the advantage of simplifying part loading and unloading. The LY-90R single-rail and LY-90TR twin-rail can be installed above ground, or for in-process measurements can be installed level with the production line. The LY-90T table version, with the horizontal arm guideway side-mounted to the cast iron surface table, is specifically designed for line-side metrology applications.
High-throughput horizontal arm CMM
The outstanding HC-90, with ceramic materials technology, offers best-in-class dynamics for high throughput, and bridge machine accuracy, with the flexibility offered by a horizontal arm CMM.
The open structure of the HC-90 provides access from three sides for part loading and unloading. The HC-90 WR single rail and WTR twin rail are optimised for the inspection of automotive bodyshells, chassis and subassemblies, with the capability of a flush installation to further simplify the loading and unloading of workpieces and fixtures. The HC-90T table version has a proven track record for the inspection of automotive panels and aerospace casings and other thin wall components, as well as precision-machined components and assemblies requiring high precision measurements.
Shop-floor horizontal arm CMM
HD-90 is tailored for the quality control of vehicle bodies and sub-assemblies in production areas, giving you the freedom to place your CMM wherever you need it.
All guideways of the HD-90 are encapsulated in protective covers to ensure thermal insulation against environmental changes and to protect the system from airborne contaminants typically found in a workshop environment. The open structure guarantees maximum accessibility to the measurement area while simplifying manual or automated part loading and unloading operations, as well as allowing a safe utilization in any production area.
