ZEISS DuraMax LTE CMM: Precision Measurement and Affordability

It’s designed for comfort with space-saving features

Published: Monday, November 16, 2015 - 11:08

(ZEISS: Maple Grove, MN) -- ZEISS Industrial Metrology has introduced of the new DuraMax LTE coordinate measuring machine (CMM), providing uncompromising access to ZEISS scanning technology at an affordable price.

Equipped with the same controller technology, software, and VAST sensor technology available in larger ZEISS systems, the CMM’s specifications, small footprint, and no need for compressed air make it ideal for manufacturers with smaller inspection labs.

“The DURAMAX LTE is an easy-to-use and affordable measuring solution with trusted ZEISS scanning technology,” says David Wick, Bridge CMM product manager at ZEISS Industrial Metrology. “The field-proven VAST XXT scanning sensor provides reliable measurement results, scanning hundreds of points per second to gather the data needed to provide accurate results. The 500 × 500 × 500 mm measuring volume on a machine that needs only 1,100 × 1,400 mm of table space, and no shop air is perfect for manufacturers trying to maximize their inspection lab space.”

The space-saving, ergonomic design offers a number of benefits for a machine with its measuring range. Extra leg room and soft-touch covers improve operator comfort, and the stylus changer option adds convenience. Parts can be loaded from four sides, making access quite easy no matter what you’re measuring. It also comes with an integrated passive damping system and covered guideways for measuring lab protection.

The popular CALYPSO 2015 software makes creating measurement programs easy. Customers can write a measurement program for the DuraMax LTE quickly for immediate inspection. It also comes with PiWeb reporting, the new, powerful quality data management software from ZEISS.

The DuraMax LTE machine is available for immediate order from ZEISS Industrial Metrology or its authorized dealers.
