Hexagon Metrology updates TIGO SF CMM for automated measurement

September 15, 2015 - Hexagon Metrology updates TIGO SF CMM for automated measurement. Enhancements include an I/O Kit that enables the CMM to interface directly with automated lines and exchange data with PLCs (programmable logic controllers). Measurement data can be used to inform process improvements as part of a wider product lifecycle management (PLM) system.

This enable easy integration into fully automated in-line or near-the-line inspection cells, or as part of a complete production/inspection setup. With a 500 x 580 x 500 mm measurement volume and shop-floor specific features, the TIGO SF is designed to efficiently measure small to medium sized parts in a harsh workshop environment. The machine's structure is open on three sides for maximum accessibility, making it ideal for use with robotic part-handling systems or automatic workpiece recognition systems.

The air-free TIGO SF has a robust design and is protected from contaminants by covers and bellows. The CMM also features advanced thermal compensation and passive damping systems as standard. Active damping can be added to enable installation near machining centers or part-transit areas. An IP54-protected machine stand is also available to protect the PC and other electronic components, so the CMM can be positioned directly within the production process to reduce measurement times and maximize throughput. For plants using a fully-automated setup, the TIGO SF can be delivered with messaging lights allowing users to monitor changes in the CMM status from a distance.
