August 20, 2018 - Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division announced the launch of its Optiv Performance 322 coordinate measuring machine (CMM) at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2018, Booth 135202, September 10 – 15, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. IMTS 2018 is a premier manufacturing technology show in North America. The Optiv Performance 322 is a customizable benchtop CMM with upgradability which caters to a variety of applications.
Weighing under 400 lbs, the fixed bridge and moving table-type machine is light enough to be placed directly on existing workbenches and relocated without recalibration by a Hexagon engineer. In addition, the machine allows for high speed (300 mm/s) and acceleration due to the stiffness of its granite construction. The CMM features temperature compensation technology that calculates a correction value for measurement deviations to ensure users get stable results. The Optiv Performance 322 is designed for the inspection of sheet metal stampings, injection-molded plastic parts, profile scanning, and more applications.
Equipped with PC-DMIS software, the benchtop CMM is designed for flexibility and can measure a range of different parts. The CMM is available in an entry-level vision-only configuration. However, the future-ready machine’s 3D accuracy specification and pre-cabling enables in-field upgrades to a complete 3D multisensor solution supporting a range of contact and non-contact sensors, reducing customer requirements for multiple products in the inspection area. The system is built on a modular concept, so the sensors, controllers, PC and measuring software can be customized and scaled to changing requirements.
