Brown and Sharpe SF

The 4.5.4 SF excels in tough shop-floor conditions, drawing its inspiration from over fifteen years of shop floor machine production experience and thousands of units in the field worldwide. It is designed from the ground up to surpass the demanding requirements of shop floor users.

This rugged CMM is ideal for machine shops and manufacturing cells - featuring advanced thermal compensation, covered ways, built-in vibration resistance and shop-hardened design.

Its most notable feature is its flexibility. The 4.5.4 SF uses standard 110/220 volt outlets with no need for shop air. Its compact footprint and roll-around stand, specifically designed to fit through a standard door, lets you easily move the SF series anywhere in the shop where precise dimensional inspection is required.

Economical to own and operate, with low up-front cost and simple maintenance.

SICK Sensors for the Electronics Industry

During front-end semiconductor device fabrication, there are several points in between processing steps where it is important to implement quality control methods. Damaged wafers are costly and it is vital to pinpoint problems as soon as possible during fabrication. Watch our new video about how simple, low-cost vision sensors can solve your quality control problems.
